Did not return to his old club Real Madrid, did not stay in Dortmund to continue his studies, and did not go to the Premier League to develop. Ashraf chose to come to Italy to follow Conte, creating a blockbuster deal that could change the Serie A title competition.
One is a three-back expert with profound tactical attainments, and the other is a supernova Wingback who is rising rapidly. The cooperation between Conte and Ashraf is very exciting, and Inter Milan has ushered in a tactical upgrade opportunity.
How good is Ashraf? In the 2017/18 season, the 19-year-old Ashraf followed Real Madrid to win the UEFA Cup, the Club World Cup and the Champions League. He defended Real Madrid's right side during the Carvajal truce, and he played 13 times out of 16 appearances. The debut, performance won the recognition of public opinion.
In the two seasons with Borussia Dortmund on loan, Ashraf turned over a record of 12 goals and 17 assists in 73 games, becoming one of the most efficient full-backs/wingbacks in the five major leagues.
In the past season, Ashraf participated in 15 goals in the league (5 goals and 10 assists), surpassing the total of the four major fullbacks of his old club Real Madrid (3 goals and 9 assists).
In addition to brushing data on the offensive terminal, Ashraf also holds many records with a sense of bursting. He is the defender with the most touches in the opponent's penalty zone in the European League this season, and the longest wing player in the Bundesliga with the ball (6,656 meters).
In the 20th round of this season's Bundesliga match against Berlin United, Ashraf ran a speed of 36.49 km/h, leading the Bundesliga sprint for a long time, and the legendary sprint superstar Bolt's top speed was only 37.6 km/h.
During the Real Madrid era, Ashraf’s performance on the court was a bit restrained, but his talent has slowly overflowed in passing and passing. The fans who witnessed his riding on the field in a white shirt will not treat him in the Bundesliga. Surprised by the performance.
Born in Castile, the Moroccan fast horse is a wind-like killer. His amazing speed and strong forward consciousness are the nightmare of defenders. The countless visually impactful side assaults are impressive. He uses The strength confirms the industry motto that "Real Madrid products must be excellent products".
Early in the 2017/18 season, Real Madrid suffered a wave of injuries, and Carvajal missed many games due to pericarditis virus infection.
Ashraf was in danger. He participated in the two rounds of the Champions League against Tottenham and the league as a guest at Getafe and other classic battles. His subsequent experience in representing the Moroccan national team in the World Cup has benefited him a lot.
After Florentino entered the palace for the second time, he upgraded the "Zinedine + Pavin" policy, and adopted a more stable Carvajal model in cultivating young people, who will not be able to get many opportunities in the first team for the time being. Players are rented out for leveling, and they will be recycled after they have accumulated enough experience. It is in this context that Ashraf started the loan journey.
弗洛伦蒂诺第二次进入皇宫后，他升级了“ Zinedine + Pavin”政策，并采用了更为稳定的Carvajal模式来培养年轻人，这些人暂时将无法在一线队中获得很多机会。玩家被租出进行练级，积累了足够的经验后将被回收。正是在这种情况下，阿什拉夫开始了贷款之旅。
In the summer window of 2018, Ashraf joined Dortmund on loan. It coincided with the injury of veteran Schmelzer at the beginning of the season. The right footer started his yellow-black career from the left gate.
In the 2018/19 season, Favre created an asymmetric 4231 system. Pishcek, who was standing over the year, became a member of the "three and a half" defense. Ashraf on the left can boldly assist, and Favre Hope to use a strong rear drive to make up for the lack of sharpness of the left midfielder (Larson & Wolfe).
In the Champions League home game against Atletico Madrid, Ashraf played a masterpiece of his career. He touched the ball 95 times, with a pass success rate of 85%, and 3 key passes made 3 goals.
In the process of planning goals for three times, Ashraf used a short pass from the ribs, an inverted triangle pass from the bottom and an anti-offside attack to complete the assists. He demonstrated extremely comprehensive offensive skills and completely suppressed the star Juan. Fran and Saul.
Ashraf, who is 1.80 meters tall, has good physical fitness. The increased muscles after coming to the Bundesliga did not affect his speed and agility.
Ashraf’s ability to go back and forth is very strong. He is good at impacting opponents in open spaces. He can complete accurate pass processing after sprinting at high speed. At a young age, he can grasp the timing of pass, belt and run well, and cooperate in passing and running. The off-ball movement in is very talented.
Compared with the rookie fullback Alfonso Davis, who is also from the Bundesliga, Ashraf's touch frequency and accuracy in a small space are insufficient, and his ability to force the ball through defenses is average.
Ashraf needs frontcourt players
In the late 2018/19 season, both Royce and Ashraf were injured, which is believed to be the main reason for Dortmund's two-line collapse.
In the summer window of 2019, German international Schultz joined Dortmund, but from the third round of the home game against Berlin United, Ashraf returned to the main lineup. In the first half of the league game at Freiburg, Ashraf played as a left midfielder and scored a wonderful goal, showing the ability to control multiple positions.
After the first round defeat in the German national derby and the guest at the Nou Camp, Favre put aside the 4231 formation, Ashraf became the right wing guard in the 34343/3421 system, and the field performance was further improved.
While Ashraf was on behalf of Dortmund to kill the Quartet, Zidane began to worry about the choice of full-back. Marcelo and Nacho are becoming more and more powerless, Ferran Mendy's attendance rate is worrying, Carvajal on the right is no longer at the peak, the door to return to Real Madrid seems to have been opened to Ashraf.
当阿什拉夫（Ashraf）代表多特蒙德（Dortmund）杀死四重奏时，齐达内（Zidane）开始担心后卫的选择。 Marcelo和Nacho变得越来越无能为力，Ferran Mendy的出勤率令人担忧，右侧的Carvajal不再是顶峰，重返皇家马德里的大门似乎已经向Ashraf打开。
Unexpectedly, Zidane was not cold about the "Bundesliga trainee", thinking that he is not an ideal candidate for the four-back system, and Bayern Munich also gave up the offer to Ashraf for similar reasons.
The two disastrous defeats at Wembley and Allianz were the worst matches for Dortmund in Favre. Ashraf was the focus of his opponents in both games.
In one-on-one defense, he is afraid to get close and is easy to eat and shake. He repeatedly allows opponents to easily complete the cross. He lacks sufficient vigilance when participating in high-post defense. The selection of positions in the process of retreat is not reasonable, and he is attacking his side without the ball. The hand is negligent, and it does not seem to be an exaggeration to regard Ashraf as a defensive black hole.
When Dortmund cannot rely on sustained and powerful attacks to suppress the opponent, Ashraf's defense zone will become the opponent's forward.
In the second round of the national derby not long ago, Favre arranged for Hazard to help defend the left gate and barely managed to withstand the impact of Alfonso Davis.
In the four-back system, Ashraf's defensive problems are more prominent. Zidane will limit his assists to ensure the defensive rate, while Favre uses double defensive midfielders (Wittsel & Delaney) to balance offense and defense.
After arriving in the three-back/five-back system, Ashraf will get close support from the full-backs, and there is no need to worry too much about defensive issues when deeply involved in the offense.
After the hustle and bustle of previous seasons, the popular three-back craze gradually faded.
Only a few teams in the Bundesliga and Serie A are still using the three-back system. At that time, the Premier League teams that followed the Kong-style blues' transformation into three-backs also returned to the four-back structure. Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham have reduced the three-backs to In plan B, only Wolves and Sheffield United are still focusing on the three-center system.
La Liga teams generally adopt a four-back system. Zidane tried a three-back style in the preseason, but soon died down due to poor results.
Among the limited wing guard resources, Ashraf appears to stand out from the crowd, and his willingness to cooperate and adept at advancing technical characteristics can just make up for the shortcomings of the Inter system.
In the new era of Serie A, teams such as Lazio and Atalanta that play offensive football have emerged, and the overall style of the league has become more open. This is the gospel of offensive players.
After more than half of the season, Conte’s Inter Milan has gradually taken shape. The combination of striker and central defender is strong, and the midfielder has enough manpower to participate in the rotation. The wingback position has become the team's shortcoming.
Candreva and Ashley-Young are good but they are old. Asamoah’s performance on the court is not enough. Moses’ play style and characteristics are greatly restricted in Serie A. Bilaghi and Raza Luo's ability is not up to the standard of riches, and Ashraf's arrival has solved Conte's urgent need.
Ashraf can first solve the problem of Inter Milan's offensive advancement. He can cooperate with the midfielder and forward on the wing to build a reliable transportation line.
The second is to improve the team’s individual combat capability and fast attack speed in counterattacks, make full use of the width and depth of the field, and reduce the burden on the two forwards. This is a bottleneck that Inter Milan’s current personnel structure cannot break through.
The third is to solve the problem of insufficient penetration of the strong side in the offensive and limited support methods, increase a scoring point other than the double forward, and improve the efficiency of scoring points when facing the middle and lower teams. This is in the Serie A championship with a low fault tolerance rate. The battle is very important.
In the past period of time, Conte has spent a lot of energy to activate Eriksson. Ambushing behind the attacking group in the frontcourt, responsible for harvesting assists and goals, Eriksson is a very configuration-dependent player, it is not easy to build a lineup around him.
Sensi can solve the ball and advancing problems, but his attendance rate is difficult to guarantee, which places high demands on the forward ability of the wing guard.
As the wing player with the longest dribble distance in the Bundesliga this season, Ashraf’s arrival has given Inter Milan’s midfield new vitality. Eriksson can return to his familiar right-side midfield position. The 352 system has continued Space for innovation.
The 22-year-old Ashraf is in a critical period of fast "raising the ball", and he urgently needs to accept the instructions of the famous coach when the technology has not been fully finalized.
From helping Juventus to return to the top, to leading the Italian national team to create miracles, to setting off a tactical revolution in the Premier League in the name of champions, Conte always made the three central defenders famous and created a very distinctive Wing guard combination.
Asamoah, Marcos Alonso and Moses have all reached the pinnacle of their careers under his command, and the more talented Ashraf has a promising future.
From his firm choice to join Inter Milan, it can be seen that Ashraf's mind is relatively mature, his career planning is rational and clear, and the possibility of "watering out" due to non-tactical reasons is very small.
For Inter Milan, who lacks motivation on the wing, a wing guard who can provide immediate combat power, extraordinary potential and a harmonious style is an invaluable treasure. The rejuvenating giants have harvested jade eager to advance. The chemical reaction between Kong Shi Inter and Ashraf is worth looking forward to.
对于缺乏机翼动力的国际米兰来说，能够提供即时战斗力，非凡潜力和和谐风格的边锋后卫是无价之宝。复兴的巨人收获了渴望进步的玉器。 Kong Shi Inter和Ashraf之间的化学反应值得期待。
