I previously owned 89 Laurent Blanc, which is a great card, but Desailly is on another level. I was able to complete the SBC for around 250k since I already had most of what was needed to obtain him. For his price (1-1.1m SBC), you will struggle to find a better defender. He viciously assaults the opposition without getting fouls called on him, has the strength of two men, and is surprisingly a good passer from the back.
The only defender I can compare to him is ToTS Koulibaly from FIFA 17, who is still the most insane defender I have ever used. Eventually, I will test out ToTY Ramos and see how he stacks up against Desailly.
- Surprisingly good passer
- Incredible physicality
- Decent, but not super OP height; his height won't be a noticeable disadvantage
- Perfect defending
- Great composure, decent reactions and ball control
- Consistent play
- High defensive work rate
- Stamina never seems to be an issue
- Not the most accurate at headers, but capable of scoring
First off to start about this card..
It's simply amazing, I remember back at the start of fifa I managed to pack Puyol and I sold him to purchase the 87 rated CB card and I was already VERY amazed by this card. It's pace, it's defending and physical is just amazing..
But what I like most about the card (this can be different for anyone) is that he is a very aggressive center back who will possibly push anyone off the ball, I never have trouble stopping attackers. The only one who he struggles with for me is R9.
He is quick, his pace is really unreal. He can catch up with probably everyone, which makes him very very good. And even though he runs alot, he never tires.
Personally, I like this card over Rio Ferdinand (which I have used for 1300+) games.
- He seems to have good heading stats, though he loses quite some headers, though not a huge con.
- Nothing else I can think off. He's amazing!
back in fifa 14, desailly was my favorite defender. the teamwork with Ferdinand is insane!
both with shadoe, and even ronaldo TOTY cant pass them.
I use him on formation 4-2-3-1(2) with DE GEA on goal, Valrncia RB, Alaba LB, two CDM are Vidal and pogba, RM Lozano 8, LM IF COMAN, CAM 85 Blanc( I want to chango for matteus) and the ST is Luis Herrnandes.
sprint speed and acceleration
stamina could be higher
