This guys is actually insane, was always unsure about that LB spot ! between him and Alaba, And Jordan Lukaku ( yes that beast is up there with them ....)
But now there nothing to be compared to ! This is the best LB in the game right now ! and he still can pick himself an inform or two !
He has now that 99 speed combined with the High/High workrates makes him a beast in that spot !
He actually can bully any speedster who wants to pass, and if he even passes he can easily track him down !
And i also think that they changed his tackling animation, he can take the ball like an icon now ! ( maldini style tackling animation )
And the most important part for me is that he never gived a penalty ! I had that problem alot with the nif version !
Anyways guys just Buy him before the pros are looking for new cards for their Cup !
- Positionning ( comes out of no where and steals the ball )
- Crazy interceptions !
- Amazing crossing ( lofted crosses OP )
- work rate
- Can still get upgraded with him scoring ! ( he plays more offensive minded lately IRL )
- Dribling ( doesnt feel like a cb tank like his NIF version, he is more agile now ! )
To be honest, id say maybe the price ! But think Valencia is 600k plus ! and you will see that the price is a bargain !
After a long line of leftbacks i tried out I finally used the 86 Alex Sandro, and I liked him a lot. However I thought that I should upgrade my team every once in a while so I started to use TOTS Davies, TOTS Gaya, TOTS Robertson TOTS Young and 88 Roberto Carlos. But none of them were balanced as Sandro was. Roberto Carlos did score a lot for a LB but his lack of height is a dealbreaker for defending far post crosses. The PTG of Sandro got updated as he received a winger totw card, so his attack was boosted and that made him the perfect card for me, so I bought him for 125k and sold 88 Carlos. His height and strength is perfect for still being agile enough to keep up with most wingers while still being able to bully them of the ball. I just love him and even his WC mode card is, despite the downgrade, still the best LB in game. With Shadow his pace is in the 99 region and his defensive stats too, so with his physique combined it makes him the GLOAT, Greatest leftback of all time for me.
Ball control, never loses the ball in a silly way.
That he is not in the Brazil squad.
