Michael Ballack - 91 - Icon
5.0
In search of good CDM
By Toybie, 21-12-2018

I am one of little who doesn't like CDMs like Kante, Makelele etc...

I needed a big man with okey pace, good def and the most important - passes

Ballack 91 provides you a defensive b2b experience and, surprisingly – hella bunch of goals. I have sold my CR7 to make up my squad and Ballack's headers... Woa

After playing CR7 - Ballack is similar to CR7 on corners

Big

Strong

good passes

PERFECT HEADERS

gets tired on CDM by 75 min

no curve

lack of agility

You can play him at CAM if you desire but his work rates can prevent him to make runs sometimes.

So for this purpose, I looked at all the possible options in the game, and after Gullit, I thought Ballack's card had the best stats for this role, to attack as well as defend. I use him ...

Gamechanger

Where do I begin. I play him at CDM with a shadow chem, guardian is a good option as well but I do attack with him a lot and I needthim to have the extra pace to covee ground faster on the counters. He has got to be one of the best box to box midfielders in the game. His high defensive work rate means that he is always ready to step in whenever I mess up in my half. Yeah his agility and balance are pretty low and I wasn't i...
