Won Volland in Daily Knockout Tournament, i planned on using him for an SBC but decided to keep him. I changed his position to CAM + Hawk Chemistry.
He's a game changer, never gets tired can be used as a box-to-box midfield
Left foot (Deadly)
3 Weak foot
I used him in a 442 as the right cm and he was awesome.
Really liked his strength combined with his dribbling!
While defending, you gotta rely on his strength and the 60 something stand tackle.
Passing and shooting was both very good, first I tried him on basic and i felt like he needed some boost for the long passing stat.
So I applied an engine chem style to him and that did fix everything.
Overall I'm really impressed by the way he plays as a cm. Thought I'd give it a try because I needed a cm next to Goretzka and it really worked out! Bender was a little slow for the weekend league in my opinion. But if I think I need a more defensive minded player I switch him in for Volland.
+shooting, inside or ouside the box, both amazing
+passing, with an engine to boost long passing very precise
-pace, I think that he's fast enough, but maybe he could be a bit quicker
-defending, as a cm I thought he would be shit because of that defending but it was alright. could be better!
First of all I just gotta say he is such a dissapontment. His ingame stats look amazing but the result you get when using him is very bad. He is a free card so you might as well just try and get him for future sbc or whatever. Really and truly i think some of his stats are a lie... 90 longshots?? Probably one of the worst players i have tried outside the area. I played him either at left stricker or cam and nothing really worked. He did score some goals but hit the post so many times. His positioning is not too bad but his pace makes him lose the ball many many times.
If you cant get him in the dkt dont worry too much your nt missing a lot
Finishing is on and off
Stats are a lie
