I don't say that his passing is weak, just his overall contribution in attack is poor. Skrinar struggles to handle and keep the ball, because his technical ability is poor. See that every time when he goes in attack, he needs first couple of moments to stop and handle the ball, then to look for a teammate and pass. All of this process takes a lot of time and it's not effective. Compare how smooth this happens on the other side with Bastoni. See how Darmian scored a goal against Atalanta cutting through the middle, when he was playing on Skrinar's position. Those two players have better ball handling to do those stuffs, Skrinar does not. This is the reason, why he is more easy to replace for me. I didn't say that he is bad defender or player, or something similar.Bastoni got 7 asists in his whole carrer so stop your hyping BS...I don't deny that Bastoni has a great ability to centre the ball compared to other CBs... I'm just saying that to say that Skriniar's weakness is passing is total nonsense...Skriniar plays a little more safely compared to Bastoni but it also depends on the coach's instructions...Because if you check stats under Spalleti Skriniar was playing more forward then under Inzaghi...
These are the numbers for whole carrer...Look at progression stats... But you can see also passes by scrolling down and see that Skriniar has better accuracy in all short,medium,long passes than Batony...
