Sergej Milinkovic-Savic joins Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne in an exclusive list of the most decisive midfielders in European football.
The 27-year-old Serbian is endlessly linked with a move away from Lazio, being one of the top midfielders in world football. Despite the transfer market noise, Milinkovic-Savic has remained loyal to the Biancocelesti and continued to shine as one of the most productive and decisive players in his role.
As highlighted by Opta (via LazioNews24), Milinkovic-Savic has scored 20 goals and provided 25 assists across the last three seasons, a statistic that only Manchester City’s De Bruyne can match. The two are the only midfielders to have scored at least 20 goals and provided 20 assists in this time period, playing key roles for their respective clubs.
Despite seeming destined for a move to a top club, Milinkovic-Savic continues to ply his trade in Rome and give Lazio fans something consistent to smile about as he goes from strength to strength.
