Samuel Lino is being one of the revelations of Valencia. Since he landed in Mestalla, he conquered Gattuso. The Brazilian has been a starter in the six league games. He has only missed 16 minutes of competition after being substituted against Girona. Lino has shown Gattuso that he has talent and, above all, a lot of work. These two virtues have made the player on loan from Atlético de Madrid an untouchable piece for the Italian coach.
Lino scored his first goal against Getafe with the Valencia shirt, but has left a thousand details of quality in the six games he has worn with the black and white shirt. In fact, BeSoccer Proa specialized database, already places the Valencia player as the best dribbler in Europe. For BeSoccer ProLino is the footballer with the most successful dribbles in the major leagues. The Brazilian successfully dribbles 5.67 times per 90 minutes.
Lino occupies the first place in a classification in which there are great stars. The Valencia player leads a table in which Nuno Tavares, from Olympique de Marseille, is in second place. Messi or Rafael Leao are also among the top ten, but ‘far’ from what Lino does in each game with Valencia.
Lino already shone last year in the Portuguese league with Gil Vicente. The winger scored 12 goals. His great campaign, together with his youth (23 years old), caused Atlético to bet on him and pay out 7 million. Now, it is Valencia who is enjoying his dribbling.
