Similar type of player: César Azpilicueta
– ball control
– first touch
– football IQ
– quite good in the air but I still see a big margin to improve this aspect of his game
Style of play:
– complete/playmaking full-back/ball-playing centre-back
– player with a decent body mass ratio, strength, and natural fitness who feels quite comfortable in contact situations
– superb option to play as a right-sided centre-back in a three-man defence system
– versatile, balanced, and well-rounded defender capable of playing anywhere along the backline
– modern full-back who combines attacking and defensive qualities and feels comfortable in the build-up
– tactically astute and technically capable of playing in various tactical systems
– perfect for the possession-based game
– very good pace, agility, and coordination
– prefers to ‘work the ball into the box’ in combinational play rather than crossing
– known for his composure in possession, footwork, technique, and close control
– intelligent full-back with good timing and positioning when going forward
– likes to move into midfield and makes combinations with his teammates/very good passing skills and vision
– high work rate, determination, and eagerness to improve
– impacts the game at both ends of the pitch/equally competent offensively as defensively
– does not dive into tackles
– concentrated and composed with very good reading of the game and anticipation
– high tackling and interception rate

– operates comfortably with his left weaker foot
Fort anticipates the pass, intercepts the ball, makes a very good run through the middle, and provides a good pass to his teammate.
Fort stays calm in a 1vs1 duel, uses his body well, and wins the ball back.
