Kalidou Koulibaly - 92 - FUT Birthday
A MONSTER, but......
By RickyPizzi, 13-04-2019

This guy is a charging bull. I used him as CB in a 3ATB formation and he was impassable. Nothing bad can be said about this card, he is the best possible pure beast-defender in the game (I had prime Cannavaro, prime Nesta, prime Hierro, prime Rijkaard, Puyol, Ramos, etc). His physicality is on another level, he grabs and catches anything near him. No escape.

TO ME, the only but huge "con" he has is his nationality and the team he plays in (Napoli). No FUTChampions-ready green links a part from Carniball Mertens (I hate him this year) and this really forces you in the construction of the team. Serie A doesn't offer much a part from Ronaldo and some defenders (speaking in terms of "FUTChampions-ready"), thus you have to settle for some players in order to have Koulibaly on full-chem. And even If you manage to fit him, you'll surely be bound in other links since the players you used to fit him will not give you freedom of choice.

I tried every combination possible, but (considering my preferences) I didn't find a valid solution. That's why I'm using Van Dijk instead of him, and that's why the Dutch costs almost twice the price of Koulibaly despite being defensively worse.

And it's a real shame.

Hoping for Serie A TOTS to have Insigne.

Simply the best defender in the game

One of the best defenders

Well when I bought him I didn't expect too much from him since in fifa Gomez can shove manolas, but this guy actually showed his strength consistently especially after the patch he just bullies all the hazards sons and lacasweats and also with the tough ones like lukaku yep you heard it he just shoved him to the ground and I can remember it because thats was the only lukaku I ran into, anyway, for the pros and cons

Koulibaly is an absolute monster in the back. I got him in my red player pick and have used him ever since. He closing speed is amazing and is physicality is absolutely mental. He is very good at winning headers but his headers as shots are terrible they almost never go in of of corners. He can track almost anyone down and is very good at knocking attackers off the ball. I dont know how good or if he is worth for 334k but i...

First things firstI got this card in a 80+ playerpick saturday morning. When I looked at his ingame stats I was incredibly excited to use him. I linked him with mertens and hamsik for me this might be my favorite trio i have yet used. I use him as the left CDM in the 4222 and how strong he is, the pace isn't the issue i also have the engine on him so he feels faster than he looks. His sho...
