There are a lot of professional soccer football players, label themselves as versatile, but there are only truly a few. Pirmin Schwegler is one of them. The midfielder of Eintracht Frankfurt can play all positions and could even be a solution at full-back. Therefore he has a very good chance of featuring in South Africa.

He prefers to play sitting in front of the defence and is very well suited for that role. A very intelligent player, who rarety is caught out of position on the pitch. Schwegler has a great relationship with his club coach Michael Skibbe, who convinced him to join him at Eintracht Frankfurt. In the German Bundesliga he already had been on the books of Bayer Leverkusen. He has earned three caps since his debut in 2009.
