But imo more because of his good positional play in defense and because he is really strong in the air - what also makes him very dangerous in standarts.
I think Mats' passing is really good for a defender, especially compared to Subotic's or Santana's passing. I think you could see the difference in the german cup tie against Bayern when Mats was missing.
