Similar Type of Player: I’m personally never a fan of trying to make comparisons of players who can play such unique roles in a team. Vital does have a tendency to ghost in at the back post in a similar way to how Dele Alli emerged at Tottenham, his ball control, technique and the ability to take a man on are very similar to that of Christian Pulisic due to them both lacking a bit of strength. An amalgamation of both could result in Vital becoming a versatile player that could bolster the ranks of any team.
Footy Files says
Oddly, nowadays at 22 years old you’re no longer a youngster. But every time Vital takes to the field you can see how promising he looks with his positional sense and his technique. The positive impact that he has on the rest of his team shows that he could really be a diamond in the rough and I would not rule out a move to one of the European leagues in the future. Where? Your guess is as good as mine, but I could definitely see a move to Portugal on the cards. He would fit in very well with current ethos at Famalicão.
