Did you Know?
Cerci is a naturally left footed player, with excellent technique, vision and remarkable quickness, playing mainly as a winger or as an attacking midfielder on the flank. He can play on both wings, but prefers the right, from which he can cut inside and shoot or provide crosses and assists with his stronger foot. His playing style has drawn comparisons to Arjen Robben. During the 2013–14 Serie A season with Torino, Cerci began to be used regularly in a creative, supporting role as a second striker, alongside the more offensive centre-forward Ciro Immobile. They played together in Torino F.C. and they became one of the most memorable duo in the team’s history.
