The position in football that always seems to be oozing with young and upcoming talent is central midfield. Miralem Pjanic may be leading the bunch. Pjanic, a Bosnia and Herzegovina international, is getting ready to suit up for his fourth season at A.S. Roma.
Miralem Pjanic was brought up through the youth program of FC Metz, a french side, and found himself playing for the defending champions, Olympique Lyonnias, in 2008. He even represented this club the following year in the Champions League semi-final. He was an electrifying prospect even then, boasting a wonderful repertoire of passes, and one of the best players with the ball at his feet.
In 2011, Pjanic found himself at A.S. Roma, and his ability really started to show. He became a much more versatile defender, playing many positions through the midfield for the Italian side. His reputation has grown to that of an elite player in Serie A. Roma took notice, and signed him through 2018 this offseason. Look for Miralem Pjanic to rise to the top of Serie A this season. We may even be talking a move to a premier club in europe when all is said and done.
