You could call Bernardeschi an attacking midfield playmaker, but he's not your average number 10. And not just because he has 33 on his back. He's a complete player and a natural leader who the opposition fear for many reasons.
He can run at defences with speed and control—but he's also the set-piece specialist. Whether he's whipping a corner into the danger zone, drilling home a penalty or bending a free kick beyond the keeper, his accuracy is second to none.
It's this control—over a range of skills—that makes Bernardeschi almost impossible to stop.
The triangles tattooed on his calves symbolise precision. It's at the heart of everything he does. And this season, he's ready to make it count more than ever.
