Similar Type of Player: There have been numerous comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo, but in my humble opinion there are very few similarities between the pair. Kaio Jorge however is strong, very quick, seemingly endless amounts of stamina and knows exactly where the goal is reminding me of a raw Luka Jovic.
Footy Files says
An unfortunate downfall in his game currently is his reliance on his right foot. Be it cutting back to ensure he gets a shot off on his right foot or his technique when dribbling, his dominant right foot makes Kaio Jorge fairly predictable when it comes to taking on an opponent.
He does however have a couple of aces up his sleeve for it not to be too much of a disadvantage. Strength, pace and an engine that keeps him going for a full 90 minutes. On top of that, his right foot knows exactly where the goal is. Confidence in his left foot will come with experience and Kaio Jorge would push his career to another level, and I can see why the likes of Juventus and Chelsea are keen on him.
