I am a sucker for free players, especially if they look decent and are obtained through weekly objectives. Parolo is one of these players. Statswise, he looks very solid. He looks a bit like Nainggolan, but less pace and taller. I feel that the allocation of the stats are better for Parolo than for Radja, as Parolo has some solid stats that are useful for him as a C(D)M i.e. great long shots and shot power, with low penalties compared to Radja having better 'not so important' stats in my opinion.
I played only 6 games with Parolo, as I wanted to have this review online prior to the weekly objective expiring. He scored 1 goal and assisted 1. He feels good on the ball. A bit sluggish, but that's ok as long as you use him correctly. He controls the play with great defense and solid passing. Stamina to last long all game and great jumping and aggression when using anchor. You could use backbone as well, but I prefer the pace over the passing which is already high enough for my liking.
- Great defending
- Great physical attributes
- Long shots + shot power
- Fairly strong
- Excellent for hybrids with easy league and nationality combination
- Not the most mobile player
- Only decent pace with chemistry style
