As we see, last season was the best one in Dmitri's entire career. FC Rostov fought to get the title first time in their history and they practically became champions. They needed just 2 points in the end to become champions.
In addition, looking at these figures, we feel that Dmitri Poloz has got so tired this season. We, of course, remember his magnificent European season (CL+Europe league), and his devotion that he had put in his game. Nevertheless, a fact remains a fact; Dmitri Poloz has some difficulties playing 30 matches per season on the same level. On average, he plays 70 minutes a game. He cannot sustain more physically, and it is easily noticed in final third of the match. Dmitri stops moving when he passes the ball, he stops tackling, stops pressing and cannot accelerate that much as he did before.
Is he the best attacking midfielder in the league? Chisamba Lungu (FC Ural) duels more often, tries to get the ball on his own(2,8 interceptions+tackles against 0,8 for Poloz), Cristian Pasquato finds his teammates in beneficial position more often than Poloz (2,3 key passes against 1,3), strikers Jonatas(FC Rubin) and Bekim Balaj (FC Terek) more often and more accurately shoot on goal than Poloz (3 shots pg 40% accuracy and 1,8 44% against 1,6 31% respectively), Alexandr Kokorin(FC Zenit) and Alexey Ionov(PFC CSKA) less often make mistakes and lose possession. Mollo and Giuliano (both – FC Zenit) more often and more successfully take on, dribble past opponents (3,5 dribbles 65% and 1,9 68% against 1,8-28% respectively), and if we look from this point of view, Dmitri Poloz is just an average player in the league.
Nevertheless, having all this in mind, Poloz is a kind and good person, who has many friends. He is exemplary father and husband. He is a trainable and disciplined player, as others do not play for Berdyev's teams. He will be involved in a national team's squad more, as long as he plays for Berdyev's teams. This particular coach can use his uncommon speed, his vision, and his skill of finding Sardar Azmoun with a pass (3 assists on Azmoun during season). He can open himself and play back a ball to Cristian Noboa. He knows and understands his task of escalating the pressure and sharpening attacking actions, and he tries to accomplish these tasks. Still, there is a question, even if you can get Dmitri Poloz free, without any transfer fee (systematical problems of Rostov with salary payouts are well known), do you need this attacking joker who can withstand 70 minutes of actions per game with a number of total 35 games per season? There are people with same roles in RFPL: Jano Ananidze and Lorenzo Melgarejo(both FC Spartak). Do you need a player with a salary of 400-500 Thd. dollars annually?
