According to Zibi Boniek, the AC Milan striker is showing a mixture of “instinct, concentration, speed, and strength.”

Krzysztof Piatek surprised everybody when he started playing in the Italian Lega Serie A with Genoa in 2018.

The former Cracovia forward scored 19 goals in 21 matches for Genoa.

And he was quickly bought by Italian rivals AC Milan.

With the Rossoneri, the Polish striker has surprised, even more, scoring six goals in five matches since he was signed in the winter transfer window.

For Polish Football Association president Zibi Boniek, the forward is a mixture of many interesting things.

“He has acquired what is most important for a striker, that is, the speed of execution. He instantly reloads the pistol and pulls the trigger,” he told Calcio Mercato.

“Speed is one of the most difficult elements to improve.”

“Much depends on the hard work, but also on the genetics,” he added.

“He has a good reaction time. It works in the blink of an eye, does not reflect, does not analyze, but makes the right decisions.”

“This is what it must be, which is a fraction of a second faster than its opponent,” he commented.

“The last two goals with Atalanta were a mixture of instinct, concentration, speed, and strength.”

“The first goal of Bergamo? With this shot, he showed the murderous instinct, which he always had,” the FA president continued saying.

“Also the head was fantastic: a show of strength, flexibility, timing, reflexes, coordination.”

“Surrounded by so many opponents it was very difficult,” he concluded.
