Brilliant player with an outstanding ball control, passing and fk accuracy.
Despite, he is not a physical player, it will give you good results if you try to benefil from the skills offered.
Corner , Free Kicks and Penalty taker.
Superb long shots.
Brilliant ball driving.
Ok so his pace isn’t great but in this game where pace seems less important I don’t even notice it, I don’t really need my centre mid’s to be quick I want them good on the ball and Rakitic is amazing on the ball. Great passer, I have engine on him so his long, short and vision are 90+, dribbling, control are 90+ as well so he’s great under pressure. His long shots are incredible. He’s scored some absolute worldies for me, he’s as good as some strikers in the box as well so pops up with a lot of goals. Stamina is good so he can play all game, his defensive side isn’t great but his attacking talents and in particular ability to keep the ball are awesome. I play him to the right of a 4-3-3 (2) with Modric and they can pass teams to pieces, i'm also pretty crap at free kicks but i have scored 3 with Rakitic in fact he's the only player i have scored a FK with this year. Such good value as well at 20kish
