Star man - Axel Witsel

Axel WitselJudging by his first competitive matches in a Benfica shirt, a rare foray into the European rather than the South American market by Benfica seems to have landed them a real star.

Belgian Axel Witsel has displayed steel, drive and strength at the heart of midfield, allied to an accuracy in his passing and a technique that owes nothing to Benfica's batch of skilful Brazilians and Argentines. Already looks a snip at 8 million euros.
