Player Review

Pelé - 91 - Icon
Does everything you want from CAM
By paulo6387, 10-05-2019

I was surprised to see only one review on this player as I expected more people would have packed this man in last months fut swap deals. However some players don't really need reviews to describe how good they are as their name preceeds them. Baby Pelé is definitely one of them.

I use him as CAM in a 4-1-2-1-2 narrow formation (squad is linked) with a hawk chemistry style. Previously had Prime moments Seedorf on this position but I shoved him to CM to accomodate for Pelé. Before that I was using prime Bergkamp. I was a fan of both Bergkamp and Seedorf, but boy does Pelé do the job in CAM even better. Extremely fast acceleration, very agile player, deadly shots from anywhere inside/outside the box and excellent passing to set up strikers or attacking full backs. The lad will even win you headers if not covered by a huge defender. People will look at his strength and think that's his weakness but honestly 72 on a CAM is pretty good and I have not noticed Pelé getting pushed off the bal that easily. I honestly can not think of any major cons to this card.

Now you don't need a review to tell you Pelé (even his baby) is a great card, but I primarily decided to write this one up because of the price. Currently this card will set you back 1.2M. If you look at comparible CAM's like Prime moments Berkamp, you'll pay around 1M (1.3M for their respective SBC's). After having used a fair selection of comparable CAM's I've come to the conclusion that baby Pelé in this price range is definitely your best option if you're looking for a high end CAM/CF. 1.2M still is a lot money, but for people that have saved up for an endgame player it's a very reasonable price. If you'd be looking at better CAM's you'll be looking at prime Maradonna or prime moments Cruijff who in turn are a lot more expensive. Players like 94 Neymar might be just as good or slightly better but also 1.2M and you don't have the link versatility an icon offers. Players like 93 Bergkamp surely do the job aswell and are slightly cheaper, but you can definitely feel they're worse than Pelé. Just from personal experience I have to say baby Pelé is the perfect endgame icon.

tl;dr: Whether you like to take shots from outside the box or dribble past every defender on the pitch, this man is perfect for every situation. High price high reward.

I currently play at 1925 SR and usually grab gold 1 in WL if I find the time to play.

Lightning quick

Excellent passing

Shots always on target

Skills and dribbles like Dinho

Still one of the most expensive baby icons
