Rio Ferdinand - 90 - Icon
5.0
Rio The Menace
By Josephjj96, 22-01-2018

Rio Ferdinand..where do I begin? Lets see..tackling 10 out of 10, simply outstanding. Strength and aggression 10 out of 10. Aerial battles 10 out of 10. There really isn't much to say about him. Prime Ferdinand is a rock in the defensive line. I sold Gullit to be able to get him, because my defense was a little rocky, and holy moly he delivered. He is just a tad better than most of the Cb's in the game. You can even play him at CDM with no problem, OR Left or Right back too. He has mastered the art of tackling, sliding, standing, blocking, you name it. He is expensive but if you really wanna get that extra layer to your defense then dont hesitate. Get him. I played him with the sentinel chemistry style, because shadow or anchor make him perform a bit poorly. But with sentinel he is simply the best Cb in the game. (You have to realise that chemistry styles can affect player negatively, even if it's a good chemistry style like Hunter, Shadow etc. You have to find the right one.)

Boateng on steroids

Back at the start of Fifa 18 i packed an untradeable Boateng and Varane and i was using them 'till now so i'm going to compare Rio to these two.After doing the Schmeichel SBC -i did it the 2nd day it came out, no reviews yet- i realized i traded my Neuer to a bronze keeper in disguise as a prime Icon... But he had it's worth as i traded him in without a flinch to Rio's sbc. Best decision. Ever....

huge fast car, but missing the highest gear

Well guys, there are some things that everyone wants to know about. One of them is "how is Rio 90 in game?", so here is an answer.PACENot much to write here, 83 honestly feels like 83, anyway- that is good for a CB, isn't it?SHOOTINGHis longshots are(not sure why) really good for his shooting stat, when he have some space in 20-25m outside of the go...

Get Rio'd

Splash the cash on the big man Ferdy. He's so good. Your defence needs this upgrade. He will make the difference in your backline. He'll win you games with his agressive playstyle and amazing interceptions. It feels like your opponents have to pass him twice. The human wall. Have used prime Desailly as well, but he is a class below Rio. This guy can carry your ass all the way to Elite WL.
