He was one of my favourite players at the start of fifa 19. but once I have more money, I went on to upgrade him with the likes of fabinho, makelele, ballack, keane and etc. but with winter upgrading coming, I invested in him. Stucked without any money to buy a better player, I played him the full 30 games of the weekend league and he surprised me a lot!
Using 442 formation and ballack the other CM, this guy is almost as good as ballack! I could really feel the upgrade in PAC, PHY and DEF. He's faster, stronger and surprisingly make all the interceptions. due to his M/M work rate, he's more central and cuts off passing lane quite often. with an ANCHOR chem style he feels quite rapid.
He's quite comfortable moving the ball up. Just focus on short pass, don't bother making him do through balls. Surprisingly decent with long shots.
INTERCEPTION. he's the best in this! probably his size helps as well.
FAST. he's fast in covering angles or just slowing others down. a big plus in getting my other players back down to help defend. underrated!!
STRENGTH he's not the strongest guy out there but he's among them. definitely need someone strong like him in the middle of the park.
STAMINA he can play the whole game and his workrate helps a lot as well.
COMPOSURE he has high composure for someone cheap and I can't imagine how much higher he'll be once he's upgraded during winter. he's gonna be insane!
CHEAP he's the cheapest player in my team and he's as important as the rest of them. definitely value for money! from 84 rated to hopefully 87 for winter upgrade, he's probably gonna be 150+k instead of the current 80k
HEIGHT he's tall enough to win off balls.
his long shots are not reliable. probably out of 10, only 2 or 3 will go in.
weak foot!! AVOID through balls, in case of his weak foot. will just pass to your opponent.
don't bother dribbling with him. just press sprint and he may just out muscle any close opponent but don't expect him to keep the ball once u turn him around.
