In addition to the successful performances of the youth teams in the continental championships, Uzbek football won another significant victory – the local footballer moved to the French Ligue 1. We are talking about the defender Abdukodir Khusanov, who signed a contract with the French Lance.
The fact that a football player from Uzbekistan has moved to the French championship in itself is inspiring. But it should also be taken into account that Khusanov was not part of one of the newcomers or a team that is fighting for survival. He was signed by a club that finished second last season and qualified to play in the Champions League.
Now the French championship will definitely become one of the most attractive for football fans from Uzbekistan. Note that on the site Mostbet UZ each new bettor can receive a welcome bonus and start betting on this tournament.
Father-footballer had a great influence on Khusanov
Abdukodir Khusanov – one of the main football talents of Uzbekistan, and his story of the path to professional football is interesting and inspiring.
The son of Hikmat Khoshimov, former defender of the Uzbekistan championship teams and player of the Uzbekistan national team, Khusanov was sent to the right football development to avoid "star fever". His father gave him a last name in honor of his grandfather, which forever prevented criticism associated with nepotism and blat. Khusanov started playing football at the age of five, and subsequently he excelled at the Bunyodkor academy.
Having chosen the position of a central defender, Khusanov has become a promising player who can continue the success of previous Uzbek defenders. At the age of 18, he joined the extravagant project of the Belarusian club Energetik-BGU, which focused on the development of young football players. With this club, he showed his skills and potential.
European experts have noticed it for a long time
Abdukodir Khusanov proved to be a talented and promising defender with many positive aspects in his game. He has been ranked twice as one of the world's best young footballers by the CIES Football Observatory, a testament to his outstanding skills and potential. Even more emphasizes the prospect of the fact that the player got into such a prestigious rating from the Belarusian championship.
One of his strengths is his lack of fear of stepping out of the defensive line onto an attacking player. This demonstrates his confidence and ability to control the situation in defense, and also increases his performance.
His ability to withstand pressure and take the initiative in difficult situations makes him a valuable asset both defensively and offensively. He is not afraid to take responsibility and create dangerous chances at the opponent's goal.
The fact that he was in the lead in the Belarusian championship in tackles and rebounds in 90 minutes underscores his aggressiveness and ability to win air duels. His ability to play on the second floor allows him to effectively support attacks and participate in set-pieces as one of the most dangerous options.
Can he immediately become an important player for Lance?
Khusanov showed good adaptability in Belarus, quickly mastering the Russian language and adapting to the new country and football environment. His transfer to Lance will give him the opportunity to continue his growth in European football. It is very important that he again be able to quickly accept the situation surrounding him.
Given the club's playing structure (most often a game of three central) and the presence of only three central defenders at the moment, it has a good chance of regular playing time, especially given the participation of "Lance" in the Champions League. This will allow Khusanov to further develop and contribute to the success of his team.
