I wanted to do a review about IF José Callejón for those of you who hesitate between him and the 86 rated Suso. I first bought Suso because he was for me the best right winger in Serie A and also because the 87 rated UCL Live Cuadrado in my opinion is quiet expensive. I enjoyed playing with Suso with is great acceleration and dribbling but as I'm not really an expert with the time finesse shot, his 89 curve and 95 long shot was not very effective for me. I played around 50 games with him (FUT Champions and Division Rivals) and the stats wasn't exceptional (Less than 20 goals and assists).
But last week came out this IF José Callejón in the TOTW 19 and I was directly thinking to try him. The statistics are very decent. Excellent pace for a winger, he can easily run away from the defenders. Interesting 81 shooting with a superb 91 attack positioning (always at the right place at the right time) and 87 volley which is very cool for crossing receptions. The passing stats are ok with a good 84 crossing et 82 short passing (Inside of the box he misses rarely the opportunity to assist). The 85 dribbling is quiet good even if for me the balance, reactions, dribbling and composure are a bit low. But the main stat that I noticed with this player is the 96 stamina, this guy can run as fast as he can from the first to the last minute of the game and don't worry about the overtime in weekend league.
But now, everybody knows that the big problem of this player is the 2 stars weak foot and 3 stars skills. I'm going to be honest with you, if you like to take long shot with left foot and doing advanced skills, you must buy Suso. On the other side, if you practice classic skills like the fake shot or ball roll and want to use your winger as an assist provider for your striker, Callejón is your man (Give him the artist chem style and you will find a 94 crossing and 87 short passing with a +9 Dribbling). Personally my strikers are Icardi or IF Belotti because their attack positioning/finishing are very high and also because they have incredible stats in jumping and heading accuracy so trust me, if you know how to use the crosses perfectly and reading the positioning of your strikers, you will score a lot.
- Attack positioning
- Balance (He is only 80 but I don't know why, this guy don't want to fall down)
- 2 stars weak foot
- 3 stars skills (not really relevant if you practice classic skills)
