Player Review

87 - OTW
4.5
Surprisingly good
By funifasaid, 10-02-2019

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.

A pleasing suprise

As I bought him I thought he would be the first one to be replaced by an icon. But after a few games, I realized that he is much better than I thought he´d be. Both four stars are vital for this card just as his height is great. He seems to be everywhere on the pitch and even is agile despite being tall. Surprisingly for me, he is able to finish and score some goals too! Overall I really rate him, although he has some nega...

Witsel Upgraded

First of all i´m sorry for my bad english. But i had to write a review on this guy after he got upgraded.He`s insane, absolute Fabinho RTTF level. Shots are incredible, dribbling is really good too sometimes maybe the ball control isn´t on Neymar Level but i guess that´s normal. His Pace is insane for a CDM, he´s an absolute beast on standing tackles and his stamina is on Kante Tier. Witsel is good at passing too...

Heading Beast and Gorgeous built-up play

First had the Plan to swap him ingame with desailly, but then i double watched the stats with anchor and as i am a player who likes cb with good built up play i sayed to myself maybe first test him as an cb and omg he is the best cb i used so far. "i tried not that much high tier defenders to be fair". With the new Meta with lot of crosses he shines so hard he is such a aerial threat its unbelivable. and then another thing ...
