DC United coach Ben Olsen has been pleased with the form of Dejan Jakovic this season.
Olsen says the 27 year-old is still improving.
"He's grown up a lot," Olsen told the Washington Post, "but there's so much more that he can do - which is scary.
"He's extremely athletic, he's fast, he's comfortable on the ball, he's good in the air," Olsen said. "He's pretty well-rounded for a center back."
