In contrast to the other review, my review will be very positive. I have played over 30 matches with him, and I must say he impressed me. Normally, I would go for a bit faster defenders, but since I have Koscielny next to him, I gave him a shot (partly because I have him untradeable though). He wins almost all of his 1v1s and defensive aerial battles, and is an aerial threat in your opponent's box. He isn't the fastest, but with a shadow chem style and good defensive positioning, he will manage himself. Now I hopw he'll score some goals at City, so that his OTW will get upgraded!
Length, Strength, Defending (obviously), Above average passing, Heading
Pace (not the fastest), Jumping (but he's 189cm)
Basically sold deffender with great distribution and not bad pace. Tall and strong.
Dribling (for a deffender) and being on the ball
Gives you a TON of links
Pace becouse he is not the fastest nor the quickest and there are much better options in terms of pace
Well this guy is a complete Liability. I have played 4 games with him since packing and he has given away 3 penalties and been sent off twice. I am honestly not a dirty player and van dijk has played over 100 games for me and been sent off once
Not sure if fifa has it in for the poor guy but everything he touches seems to go tits up!
He can be pretty solid if you're outside the box but i would advise to not attempt to tackle once a player gets through
Pacey with a shadow card applied
Ok to keep on the bench
Liability for your team
Gives away fouls way too easily
Doesnt spend much time on the pitch as gets sent off
