André-Pierre Gignac - 86 - Award Winner
5.0
Gignac Award Winner
By Mpenza, 11-12-2018

So I decided to do this Gignac SBC because it looked pretty easy and in all honesty I was more interested in the packs that came with it than anything else. After doing the SBC and getting him I threw him on my bench with the thought that he probably won't play much due to his speed and 3* skills/weak foot. I was very very wrong. Somehow, I don't really remember, he managed to work his way to my starting 11 and has been an absolute beast ever since. I partner him up with another striker and two CAM's (4222) who have a lot of pace and instruct Gignac to stay forward and press the back line. I was expecting him to be as lethal as he is. yes, his pace isn't the best and he only has 3* skills and weak foot but all he does is produce for me. His finesse shots are the best I've seen in this game so far. He reminds me of a Ibra from past FIFA's. In 85 games I have 61 goals with him and 30 assists and he's now become the center piece that my offense revolves around.

  • Shooting: unmatched finesse shots (power header and finesse shot traits are huge)
  • Strength: very hard to take off the ball with 94 strength and 84 aggression
  • Passing: much better than his stats put on



  • 3* Skills: Won't be fooling too many defenders
  • 3* Weak Foot: Can be an issue for some players, just make sure he plays on the left side of the attack and he will produce
  • Stamina: I haven't noticed this being poor because he doesn't cover much of the pitch due to my instructions for him to stay forward but I can see how this can become an issue for some play styles
  • Strong Links: It may be sort of difficult to find strong links for him because he plays in the LIGA Bancomer MX, however just surround him with french players/a french Icon and you're set

Worth It

I didn't expect Gignac to be this good when completing the SBC, but I did it anyway because I needed a solid player on my bench. He has some flaws, but he does his job and does it well. I use him as a super sub at both CAM and striker depending on where I need him at the time. If you have a French team or need a solid bench player, I highly recommend completing this SBC. It is well worth the 40k.

Absolutely Phenomenal

I play this card along side Griezmann that i have untradable in a 4-1-2-1-2(2) with inform payet behind them.I was always very certain that Griezmann was the best french finisher on the game, however i was wrong...As much as Griezmann is a brilliant finisher in his own right if you put a hunter chem style on this Gignac he finishes near enough anything you put infront of him.The strength on t...

Better than lewandowski

I have always liked using Gignac in FUT and that's the reason I did this SBC. Gignac was cheap, he has good shot, he is tank and the list goes on. I had Lewa for like 60 games his goal ratio was okay but personally I prefer Gignac because he is more physical, has better acceleration and his shot is just as good as Lewansdowski's. The best thing about this card is that sweet 87 PHY, he is the strongest player i have used th...
