How will Jack Rudoni fit in at Huddersfield Town? Not The Top 20 podcast’s Ali Maxwell gave the lowdown on the midfielder!
Describing Rudoni as a player, Maxwell discussed the potential he has to improve while at Town.
“Jack is a goal-scoring attacking midfield player, with serious potential because of a knack of being in the right place at the right time, either arriving late into the box or shooting from the edge of the box with a very good left foot and surprisingly good in the air.
“He is somebody most at home in the final third, in and around the opposition box, but a player with definite potential to develop into a more all-rounded midfielder with the right coaching and development.
“Mostly, the thing that stands out with a young player like Rudoni compared to others of his age is how innate his movement seems to be getting into difficult goal scoring positions. That is a very difficult skill to teach and therefore a valuable skill to have.”
Maxwell was nothing but complimentary when talking about Rudoni’s character, as he discussed his short-term and long-term goals with Huddersfield.
“He has got a serious work ethic and he is incredibly determined to fulfil the potential that he has - he is very hard working.
“He seems really humble and not someone who is very arrogant or has ideas above his station. I suspect he will be really pleased to have found a Club like Huddersfield in the Championship with recent history of developing players and giving them opportunities at Championship level.
“He will be focusing at the moment on settling in and finding a role in the team; for someone his age he has played a lot of senior football already and he seems like a smart young man.
“I’m sure it would have been a big part of him signing to see the example of Jon Russell or some of the other players in the Town First Team who maybe signed from the lower leagues, or in Russell’s case having left an academy without many senior appearances. There is a clear pathway at Huddersfield Town and so I think for a young player signing that would have been a big factor.”
The Not Top 20 co-host went on to speak about what the fans can expect from the young attacking midfielder.
“You can expect goals from attacking midfield areas - he grew up idolising Frank Lampard and the way he always seemed to arrive at the box at the right time.
“Once he finds his feet in the team, I would be expecting him to be the sort of player that Huddersfield fans are surprised and delighted to see popping up on the end of chances regularly and hopefully taking them as well because his finishing has been good in his career so far. He is someone with definite potential to grow a lot as a footballer in his all round game.
“As an attacking midfield player, he’s not someone who dribbles the ball a lot, he’s a good passer and combines very well with teammates and what he has shown very clearly is his eye for goal. If you’re a modern team that wants goals to come from attacking midfielders as well as your number nines, then that is what Huddersfield have got in signing Jack.”
