Iker is a right-sided central defender, right footed, who is also able to play as a right back. He has outstanding aerial prowess, with a good reading of the defensive aspects in anticipation and coverage both to his other central defensive partner and to the side. He is powerful in split contacts and balls. He is fast in transitions and with speed over short and medium distances. He displays good composure on the ball with inside passes or distribution and driving forward with possession to break pressure lines. Iker, despite his very young age, has a strong character because he lives his day to day intensely as a footballer and is very focused on his role.
