Look I'm sure no one here is surprised to hear that a 94 rated prime icon Ronaldinho is end an amazing end game card
However why I did want to write this review is because as someone who used him for over 500 games in FIFA 18 and has used him for about 3 days in FIFA 19, there is something he offers that very few other cards do and that is LONG TERM VALUE.
Let me explain, prime R10 is one of the most versatile attacking cards in the game, with his 5 star skills 4 star weak foot and very high stats across all attacking attributes, by using different chem styles he can become a 10/10 player for any CAM/CF/LW/LF/ST role.

The reason why you should care is because most of us know that EA tax is literally the worst thing when dealing with end game cards, losing potentially hundreds of thousands of coins if you pick a player that you later choose to sell. Why Ronaldinho's versatility is so valuable is that I honestly believe that he is one of the best long-term investment cards if you plan to build your team over the entire year.
If you can afford him early in the year, you can move him around positionally in your team's attack or midfield as you acquire more and more specialised 'end game' cards, yet Ronaldinho will still be a terror to your opponents even after the game is well and truly dead filled with TOTS/TOTY cards in late 2019.
Quick player review for those who can’t guess: he has amazing passing, finesse shots, powered shots, pace dribbling etc.
if I was to describe how he feels on the ball, he's like a combination of Neymar and Ronaldo (cr7), giving him amazingly fast and agile dribbling but also the powerful forward movement to not get pushed off the ball or dispossessed.
TLDR: He can play any attacking role and will never be outclassed so you can use him all year making him one of the safest end game icon purchases.
p.s anyone who thinks my games to goals is a lie, please keep in mind he scored 16 goals over 2 squad battles games which makes his stats a little bloated.
- Best skiller in the game (as of 10/11/2018)
- Plays any attacking position perfectly
- Like a hybrid of CR7 and Neymar
- Stamina (only if game hits extra time)
