As soon as I saw this card I just knew I had to get him, he fitted perfectly in to my team and his stats are incredible. His price of around a 100K is just way to low, I would have honestly paid up to 300K for him and after using him even more... I usually have less posession than my oppnent but with this De Rossi card that completely changed, if you have this man running on your side of the pich your opponent just can't get there! With his high defensive workrate he is always in the right place when you don't have possesion and if your opponent gets close he is absolutely screwed… De Rossi is fast enough to keep up or to come close and when he reaches his opponent he will either make him fly out of the stadium or get the ball with a perfect tackle. Do I need to explain 99? Well he will intercept every single ball that's kind of near. So if he got the ball off the opponent (wich will basically always happen) the choise is yours, will you give a pin point accurate short pass with his 99 short passing or will you give a perfect long ball with his 99 long pass? If you don't feel like passing the ball you can also go on a run with him, although he only has 76 dribbling in game you still can't stop him, with his decent pace and exceptional strenght you just run and there is not one player in this game that can bully him off the ball, no seriously not one! I've seen prime Vierra, tots Koulibaly and many more try but not one of them succeeded. I gotta say there's one negative about the card, after you just walked past some players for fun you are standing inside the box and have to shoot the ball in to the net. Well I can tell you that De Rossi can shoot the goalkeeper straight into the hospital but with his 67 finishing he might struggle to score every now and then… Is this a real problem? NO! There is a very easy solution for this! Just shoot from outside the box and you will score like 8 out of 10 shots no matter how far out you are, his 99 longshots combined with 99 shotpower just shouldn't be allowed and he 100% has the best longshots in the game. One of the best things about this card is that he will never let you down on imported moments due to his, yet again 99 composure. Sounds good right? Well I have one last pro for you: he can do this pretty much the whole game. 91 stamina is more than enough, only in extra time he might start to run out of steam a bit. Overall he might be the best CDM in the game and he will even get the job done at CM so should you get him for around 100K? YES!
- always in the right spot
- forward runs using his strenght
- Finishing but you don't need it with his longshots
