Even when Borja Valero doesn't score or create a goal, he is always involved in keeping the Fiorentina midfield running.
He averages 61.9 passes per game and has combined brilliantly with David Pizarro, who has had a resurgence like Steed Malbranque at Lyon.
When Valero is being productive, that is when you flirt with the idea of classifying him as a world-class midfielder.
Since I'm not going to talk about Fiorentina anytime soon, I'm going to give you my thoughts on Matías Fernández.
Heartbreaking, isn't it? Where is the Fernández that had the world at his feet as a teenager?
He'll go down as one of the most unfulfilled talents to ever play the game.
At least, he slogged it out in Europe, whereas the likes of Jorge Valdívia, Yasuhito Endō, Mohamed Aboutrika and Ismail Matar will always leave you wondering what they could have been if they played in Europe's elite leagues.
