Welcome to the Review of the 2nd Best CAM in the game! Behind TOTY De Bruyne.
I was blessed to have packed him from the BPL TOTS SBC.
He fitted straight into my Mega Team and if you are asking yourself how did you get this team? Fifa Points at the start of FIFA 19 + Good Rewards from Div 1 & Gold 1, Elite 3.
Lets get into the Stats:
Pace - 9/10 -> He Feels pretty quick, with Engine i felt the 95 Acceleration a lot - his Sprint Speed of 92 is also alright. It isnt enough to fully escape the Meta Defenders like Rio / Any Van Dijk / Desailly & Banc , but you can go around them with some silky Skill Moves.
Shooting 10/10 -> OMG! This guy has 99 Long Shots (Base) + 97 Long Shots & 5* Weak Foot.. do i need to add anything to that? He will score pretty much every longshot you take around the Box. You can Tell by the 19 Goals in 51 Games -> All of them were Longshots.
Passing 11/10 -> Yes, 11/10. Every Pass will find its way, if you are in a wrong body position just press LT + pass for a flair pass. He will always find your striker, no matter what distance, his passing is literally broken! The Stat that improved my Weeekend League for sure, he will find my Mbappe & Dinho with every over the top ball .. Perfectly Weighted Pass to R9.. Its just insane. 31 Assists speak for themselves.
Dribbling 10/10-> Smooth , La Croqueta , Perfect Ball Control. You know the OP Mechanics of the game. He has pretty much all of it , bar the 5 Star Skills which would have made him the best CAM in the game.
Defending 8/10 -> Not to be expected but kind of "disappointed". This & Physical is the difference to KDB TOTY. He will intercept quite a few balls due to his 95 Acceleration , BUT his tackling is not really worth noting.
Physical 7/10 -> Small Build - 77 Strength and 61 Aggression is just not enough. Compare this to TOTY KDB 88 & 89 respectively. He wont win any headers, will get outmuscled against defenders 9/10 Times. The Stamina of 99 is what saves this guy - he can go 120 Minutes without tiring and believe me.. He will always get an assist because he will also be able to find that killer pass in the 120th minute!
Overall for 900K coins you cant go wrong with buying this guy. If you have spare coins give him a try!
