The Swiss native, Blerim Dzemalli has produced wonders thus far with the Montreal Impact. Dzemalli's invigorating style of play and his sheer talent of play allowed him to compile four goals and four assists in 8 games so far in his loan spell with the Impact. The former Napoli midfielder has shown that he owns a knack for game winning goals. 3/4 of his goals has been game winners, his most recent being against the Philadelphia Union yesterday night. Dzemalli is the type of player we have been longing for since the departure of the Ivorian native, Didier Drogba.

However, we need to ask the question, what is behind Blerim Dzemalli's successes so far in his stint with the Montreal Impact? There is an abundance of factors on why Dzemalli has meshed well with the Impact. Nevertheless, one of the most important reasons why he's succeeded is because the plentiful attributes he brings to this squad. With what he brings to the table, he certainly molds well with the teams attacking style of play. Dzemalli, the 31-year-old midfielder who represented his country Switzerland the 2006 and 2014 World Cup and the 2016 European Cup made his presence felt so far in his tenure with the Impact by exemplifying the wealth of talent he has to showcase. His pure ability to pass the ball at will, his capability of maintaining possession of the ball and the fact that he brings stability to the starting 11 are all important constituents to consider on why Dzemalli has performed exceptionally

Another vital factor to consider on Dzemalli's success is team chemistry. Without chemistry, a player cannot perform to their accustomed expectations. The game of soccer is a team game. Thankfully, the midfielder has formed a good combination along with Argentinian, Ignacio Piatti, who was most recently selected to play in the 2017 MLS All-Star game. The two respected players have produced wonders. In their first 4 games together, Piatti and Dzemalli accumulated seven goals and four assists. The deadly duo will become even more of a threat on the pitch as time progresses.

Nonetheless, Dzemalli was without a doubt an excellent signing by the Montreal Impact. With the experienced Midfielder in the fold, Dzemalli bolsters our midfield and heavily increases Montreal's chances of advancing to the MLS playoffs. Considering his resume on the club and international stage and the skill set he brings to the team, you can certainly expect big things to come from the Swiss.
