Basith has been praised in his career for his work rate and being a team player. He is known to be a hardworking player who gives his 100 per cent in every game.
He has played in three positions - attacking midfield, defensive midfield, and as a striker. He has largely excelled in the attacking midfielder role, but has been equally impressive on the defensive side.

He will bring us a lot of stability in building our attack and his track record of creating chances and finding gaps into the opponent’s final third is the primary reason the staff made sure that we secured him as soon as his availability was brought to our attention.”
