Former Austria international Thomas Flogel has heaped praise on midfielder James Holland.

The 23-year old Australian has emerged as a key player at Flogel's former club Austria Vienna this season and the 41-year old endorsed him in a recent addition of Sportwoche.

"Now I have the feeling that he is getting better with every game," said Flogel, who also played for Heart of Midlothian and Admira Wacker.

"That Austria Vienna has conceded so few goals, is not the sole merit of central defence and goalkeeper, but also of Holland's superior style.

"No risk passes, he always keeps his position, if he contributed more goals and assists, he would be perfect."
