A must have IF playing 3 or 5 ATB
By cellshoxx, 04-02-2018

Koulibaly is a MONSTER. If it wasnt for the links and the workrates he would be one of my Top 3 Defenders.

The only problem with him is the H/H workrates, thats why I would recommend him in formations with 3 or 5 ATB. In my case (5-2-1-2) I paired him up with Manolas and Hero Benatia bc they have M/H and L/H so his H/H workrates worked perfectly. Apart from that he kills it every game for me.

I use this IF Koulibaly with an Anchor chem card. This gives him the speed to keep up with most players, and the defending and physicality to take the ball away. What else could you want?


Well, he's also a great header of the ball now as well. Not only in defense, but on corner kicks he will also give you some scores as well.


In short, he's a big, strong, aggressive brute who will serve well as one of you CB's.

  • 99 Str, 98 agg. He bullies people with the ball.
  • Speed - good for a defender and doesn't feel like a tank.
  • passing and dribble. He's not going to take the ball up field for you. Take away the ball and get it to someone else.

Disappointment
By Thecaliph, 12-03-2018

I always use formations which based on 4 defenders ( 2 CB - LB and RB ). According to match dynamics, it can be 4-1-2-1-2 narrow, 4-2-3-1, 4-2-2-2. Before I bought Koulibaly, I used Shadow Manolas and because of work rate, I did not have any trouble in defense. However, Koulibaly has a High / High workrate and when opponent pass towards forwards, Koulibaly leaves his position and runs. This creates spaces in defense. To cover the spaces, my RB player come closer to the Benatia and this means that your team width becomes less than 40-45. In this way, opponent sees his left wing is optimum for the attacks.


In summary, I replaced the Koulibaly with Manolas again and my defense was fixed. Although Koulibaly's stamina is higher than Benatia, Koulibaly gets tired quickly because of his workrate.

+Strength

+Air balls

+Tackle

-Actually he has only 1 disadvantage that affects everything which is High / High Workrate.
