Bought this card on a whim when it just came out. I recently made an Italian league team and was disappointed with the low number of 4* skill midfielders in the Italian league. This guy came out on TOTW9 and I immediately bought him. With him you will have to make a decision as to whether he is a CAM or a non defensive CM. For me, he is a great CAM. His sprint speed and work rate in attack feel very good and refreshing to use since the Italian league in the budget price range has some extremely slow midfielders. I also really enjoyed taking long shots with him. Most of the time his long shots fly into goal before the keeper knows what happened.
- Very fast for a midfield player.
- Great long shots
- High attacking WR makes him score a lot of goals
- Speed + 4* skill makes him very fun to use in the midfield
- He gets bullied off the ball fairly easily.
- Unconvincing in the air
I have played around 10 games with him so far and I have scored 20 goals in Div 2. He is an amazing midfielder with extremely accurate shooting. I replaced Napoli's Allan with this IF Ljajic alongside Bonaventura. I haven't been able to get many assists (only 1 so far) but his goal output is impressive for me.
Pace 83 = More than adequate for a CM
Shooting 82 = Extremely good finishing near the edge of box. Feels like 85.
Passing 80 = Adequate passing. I was tracking him getting 28/30 passes completed on avg. per game
Dribbling 86 = Extremely good ball control and movement. Feels like 88. I was getting 13/15 dribbles completed on avg. per game
Defending 38 = He wasn't really good at winning the ball back or intercepting
Physical 68 = Not very strong at shielding the ball against elite defenders or fast wingers
- Long shots
I bought this guy for just under 20,000 and is not good enough for my (Calcio A) 1st team. He lives on the bench and comes on most matches and is a real boost to the team in extra time. and is very useful for when my strikers get an injury. My best recommendation for him is to play him at striker and with a hunter Chemistry style, as this will give him 91 shooting and 95 Pace. Over all this Player is a great player. Especially if you have an Italian league team.
- Very well rounder card,
- Great pace and shooting
- Works well around players like Dybala and Higuain
- Good free kicks
- 4 star skill moves
- 4 star week foot
- Not the best Stamina
- Week on physical
