Felix Passlack is currently considered to be one of the most talented players in Germany. He stems from Borussia Dortmund youth academy and is already being compared to a BVB-grown Mario Götze. Passlack was an important player in the Dortmund U17 squad which won the U17 Bundesliga in 2013/2014 season. He is also a regular German international, having captained the U-17 team at the 2015 European Under-17 Championship, where he was also the team’s best player.
“On the pitch, Passlack is a tricky player who can cover ground at remarkable speed. His direct style of play is attractive and this trait follows him in daily life. If he doesn’t like something, he’ll tell you. Having said that, long aren’t his thing, he’d rather concentrate on the basics.”
