Name: Christopher Griebsch


You as a player: "Strengths: Set pieces, technique, passing, shooting, both footed, crosses, creativity, determination.

I’m creative left footed attacking player with vision for his teammates and for goal but I will also work defensively with a huge determination to win. Experienced in all attacking position as well as Center Midfield. I have always been a starter for the teams I played for. Last year I played second division in Cyprus (season 2014/15). I started all 8 games till I went back to Germany. I assisted 5 goals and scored a goal in a friendly match against AEL Limassol that played UEFA Champions - League Qualification that season. I’m very hard working and want to play on the highest level possible!"

MLS (Major League Soccer) Scouting Report: WHAT COACHES SAY: “Great technique … He has a professional left foot, delivery on set pieces is unbelievable, you have to be aware of him when he is 20-30 yards away because he can strike it from distance ... I think he's got a special left foot which you got to imagine that pushes him up the list ... He played as a winger, underneath like a 9.5 ... He's got good vision and he knows when to release the ball and he's not fast but he's tricky ... He knows how to lose the guy to get his cross or shot off. ... Kid was player of the year in our league. You have to be aware of him ... Depending on schematics he can play pinched in to the midfield either left side or wrong-foot on right side ... Very educated left foot, very tricky … If he were American, he'd have a lot more interest ... Very, very effective college player. Question will be pace and athleticism. But very clever … Decent size, but can he run with everyone in MLS ... Kind of an underneath guy. He's left-footed but can't be a winger.”
