I used him in a 5212 with a catalyst chem style, boosting his passing and pace. As a wide back in this formation you need to have great stamina and this guy just keeps going. Both his attacking and defending abilities are fantastic. His crosses often end up on the head of Lukaku, whilst he is very dangerous coming inside with a low driven shot. Furthermore he is a very reliable and solid defender. Before I used Valencia but he just did not seem to get the goals and assists that Munier is getting. I know not a lot of players use this formation, but I can imagine he is very strong in a 4 ATB formation as well.
I wish there was a left back which is as complete as he is!
Because Milinkovic Savic SIF is quiet expensive, but a very good CDM, I was looking for a similar player in height and stats.
Meunier is quite similar to him and costs only 1/3 of Milinkovic Savic. And I can tell you he is worth every penny.
I play him from the bench with Mooy SIF and its a perfect combination. His height lets him win a lot of headers and he has a really good standing tackle.
I play him as a shadow, which gives him even more pace.
Worth a try, if you don't have much money and are sick of playing bakayoko :)
- standing tackle
- stamina (94)
- good allround stats
When I bought him I was a little suspicious about his pace, but with the shadow chem he became a good runer. At back, he is perfect, fast, tall, strong, has good marking and tackles and win air balls. When he attacks, his crosses are good (I don't have a tall ST so I don't score too much with header), his decent finishing could be a surprise element, and i don't really try so much to long shot with him, but I could score twice.
Pace (if your oponent is a pacewhore)
