SOCIAL Aliu vs Downie in practice 


A very aggressive winger, Aliu has excellent agitating qualities. He likes to hit and play a physical game. Also has some offensive ability and a quick release.
On the downside, he has been accused of being a lazy player with a sore attitude to the game at times. (EP 2011)
