I packed him in the SPL SBC and decided to try him in my brazilian squad. At first I thought that he would be weak, but then I took a look at thr player stats and he had 91 overall as a CM (without chem styles), and 95 overall as cm in Engine chem style. In game, as a CM in my 4321 formation he was good AF, he was in every side of the pitch and his agility and passing are really game changing. His shooting is ok, but not great.He didnt felt weak, but he isnt very strong, he does the job. Defensively he is not that great (he has only 50 marking, YES 50 MARKING IN A TOTS CDM). In my 41212(2) formation he wasnt that good. As I needed someone with better defense, he let me down. But passing and dribling were still amazing. Because of his price, and his quality controling the game with his passing, i would totally recommend it (especially if you have SBC Giuliano).
Work rates (H/H would be perfect)
Defense (50 Marking is awfull)
Shooting (Isnt terrible but could be lot better)
