Seoane: Azmoun still "missing a lot"

By Rune Gjerulff

Sardar Azmoun is still far from his top level, according to Leverkusen coach Gerardo Seoane.

Bayer Leverkusen coach Gerardo Seoane has emphasized that there is a lot more to come from Sardar Azmoun.

The forward, who arrived injured from Zenit St. Petersburg in January, made his first start for Leverkusen in Sunday's 0-2 win over Wolfsburg.

Assessing Azmoun's performance after the game, Seoane told reporters:

"You saw two or three situations, where he was lacking a bit of the final explosiveness to assert himself. We all know it's difficult to judge what percentage level he's at. But there is still a lot missing."

Azmoun will now be able to gain some match practice during the international break, having been called up for Iran's games against South Korea and Lebanon.

"We are happy for him that he now has two games with the national team. That will do him good," added Seoane.
