If Marc Roca’s point at Bayern Munich has not worked out as he hoped it is not for the long of trying or a privation of ability.

That’s the aspect of La Liga and Bundesliga experts who all rave about the midfielder’s ball-playing prowess and message similar concerns around physicality.

It does not bear many other than a snog at the 25-year-old’s job to detect shades of Junior Firpo or even the White who almost was, Michael Cuisance.

A move to an top cudgel that arguably represented too much, too soon, and therefore didn’t yield the success or natural entertainment juncture that the trouper wanted and needed.

For Firpo it was a carry to Barcelona from Real Betis, while for Roca and Cuisance it was the romp to Bayern Munich from Espanyol and Borussia Mönchengladbach respectively.

Leeds handed Firpo a arise to rebuild, were dead form on doing the alike for Cuisance until that treaty collapsed at the 11th hour and could now set about Roca their sequential restoration project. But there is an central difference amongst Cuisance and Roca’s case at Bayern that ESPN’s Bundesliga reporter Archie Rhind-Tutt is wail to highlight.

“Roca was one of these players that Hasan Salihamidzic had his eye on for a while and he came into a Bayern team where recipience in among or receiving in guise of Leon Goretzka or Joshua Kimmich is bluefish nigh on impossible,” Rhind-Tutt told the YEP.

“And then there was the moment this season where he finally got his shot of having three or four games in the Bundesliga in a racket and played really well. Julian Nagelsmann spoke up about how much he liked him and really picked him out for praise. But when the players above him in the pecking order came back, he no longer got the diversion time. So it’s understandable that he wants to bear on. That he picked him out for praise, you never heard anyone do the identical for Cuisance. And actually it says a pile for his persistence that he was eventually given a shot and he did bear it, albeit for a concise interval of time.”

A deep-lying midfield operator who Leeds see as passive back-up for , Roca is ‘everything you would want’ in a possession performer and someone with overripe specialized side in Rhind-Tutt’s eyes.

“Roca is a variation of Rodri, but the Rodri that boon arrived to the Premier League,” of CBS and La Liga TV told the YEP.

“His distribution is uncommonly good. He’s a infrequently nibble like the [Toni] Kroos of Espanyol. But nosedive a brace of levels and you procure there – obviously he’s not as honest as Kroos but he’s got righteous terse passing, clever ephemeral up front, not like Kroos with 50 metres accurate passing, not yet. He does see a pass. For the possession amusement he’s absolutely brilliant, is ethical at reacting as well.”

Jamie Kemp, an editor at Opta, and Colin Millar, The Mirror’s European football writer, copier Balague’s view.

“Roca was technically creditable and appeared halfway certain to set about the parade up to the Spain senior international scene,” spoken Millar.

Kemp added: “His breakout season was in 2018/19 at Espanyol, which timed with the staff animated to a other progressive executive in Rubi, who started to harness his aspect in possession. His elite football there came while playing as the deepest of three midfielders – he was their principal outlet for ascendant possession and helping to build spells of play.

“It’s really on that feature of the globe where he’s at his first – obtaining his touches in, creed connected to the game, mobile the circle with purpose. He really was climbing up the hierarchy of Spanish midfielders at that iota and he looked primed to be quite special.”

Kemp’s concern is that he struggles to see Roca slotting seamlessly into what he calls the ‘more erratic environment’ of Jesse Marsch’s high-pressing style.

That and how he commit tester with the Premier League’s physical demands are the only authentic notes of warn from those who have watched his employment fashion so far.

“He’s not got the biggest stature, the biggest presence, which might be thing in the Premier League given how you generally hold destroyers in that plight from what I see,” uttered Rhind-Tutt.

Millar agrees, although argues that Roca cannot be judged on less than 1,000 minutes of football at Bayern Munich and suggests it might be feasible to recoup for any need in physicality.

“He notably lacked athleticism [in Spain] and I suppose the physicality angle is a concern but it all depends on who is around him, the system, et cetera,” spoken the Mirror man.

“My grill is physically, he may struggle at first,” added Balague, who last summer predicted Firpo’s problems at Leeds might come, as they did, in one v one defending.

“Because he hasn’t played regularly for the last two years, three years you’ll posses to see, there’s always a quiz mark, especially about the footslog – he wasn’t the fastest. It’s difficult to obtain the sphere off him but he used to carry too a lot of risks, although they [Bayern] might hold taken that out of his game.”

The Spanish academic does see lots of room for optimism alongside any dormant issues.

“Because he has been in Germany he must be stronger than he was when he was in Spain,” he told the YEP.

“He’s a proficient kid and he entrust swallow things and you know, he commit alter his game, there’s no suspect about it. And he’s got a lot of ego as well.”

If they symbol him – Roca is one of a cipher of options they’re exploring – Leeds are not expecting the 25-year-old to arrive at the same sort as Premier League ‘destroyer’ Phillips, but as with every signing there is an aspect of venture and a dose of the unknown.

There are besides considerable upsides, not least that he cede be hungry to put his employment back on path and prove he belongs in one of Europe’s first leagues.
