Isael Barbosa - second among the internationals
Professional Football League of Kazakhstan published the list of best international players according to Instat.
FC Kairat midfielder is among the Top 3 international players, and only just missed on the first place.
Isael da Silva Barbosa (Brazil), FC Kairat, Right midfielder
Instat Index – 215
Best match this season: 13.08.2016 Okzhetpes - Kairat 1:3 (Instat Index – 298)
Competition on a position: Twumasi (FC Astana)
Even a quick look at the table is enough to understand why Isael is placed higher than Twumasi. Statistically Brazilian is better in all important components. He sends more passes forward and does more accurately, he takes on players more often with higher rate of success, gets involved in more challenges and wins almost half of them, as well as loses the ball less. There is no surprise, having in support such player as Isael (and Arshavin of course!), Gerard Gohou finished top goalscorer in the Premier League this season.
