One of the most interesting wingers that came out of Switzerland.


Kerim has an unparalleled coordination and is very explosive. His strength is his speed and technique. In ball possession he is the fastest player in Holland. Ambidextrous. strong precise shot with both feet. Aggressive and courageous that goes towards the defenders and concludes his actions at a very high rate with a precise pass, cross or shot. He is a player that has played alongside big named strikers like Mario Gomez, Berbatov, Demba Ba and for example Adebayor; they all profited by his through passes and numerical advantages created that came out of Kerims play.


He played under important coaches such as Martin Jol, Slaven Bilic and with other players such as Srktl, Glichy, Quaresma, Robinho etc. All can give positive references. Very professional and positive minded. He never had an issue whatsoever with his employer.
