Strengths:

– athleticism  

– bravery

– aerial duels

To improve:

–  his proactive style of defending is impressive but may be a little bit too risky sometimes due to his age and lack of experience at a high level/against high-intensity teams

– quite good in the air but I still see a big margin to improve this aspect of his game

Style of play:

– complete, elegant, and dominant central defender

– player with good body mass ratio, physical strength, power, stamina, and natural fitness who feels comfortable in contact situations

– suitable to play as a RCB in a three-man line or even as a right-back

– modern defender, who combines strength with good technique and passing

– prefers an active style of defending by getting into challenges, pressing opponents, and anticipating their moves

– very good pace and coordination

– likes to spread play with good long-range diagonals

– able to play in a high line

– concentrated player with very good reading of the game and anticipation

known for his composure, positional sense, and confidence in possession

– good retention skills under pressure

– good at finding passes through both the first and second line of pressing from the opposition

– likes to maraud forward and assess passing options on the move

– consistent, aggressive, and hard-tackling player

– positively aggressive player who likes duels but usually plays clean and doesn’t get booked very often

– mature for his age with possible good leadership skills in the future

Morgalla keeps up the pace of a fast attacker and makes a very important last-man tackle.
Morgalla stays calm under pressure, gets past the first line of pressing with ease, charges with the ball forward and plays a superb long ball to his teammate on the wing.
