Honestly i fell in love with this man while i had a Serie A squad. He was a present from an untradeable pack and honestly he will remain with me until the end of time. I tend to sub him on at either the 70th or 85th minute depending. And either as a CM or a CDM. I love him.
Defending - His defending is fantastic. Stand tackling is incredible. Slide tackling is great. Interceptions are awesome too. He is fast enough and has enough strength and jumping to do all you want him to from a defensive standpoint. Win headers. Cut out passes. Make decisive tackles. Brilliant.
dribbling - after he wins the ball from the air or ground he will turn and charge. Not too far (don't want to leave a hole for the counter!)
Passing - once he has made that decisive charge he can play it short or long to a player of your choice. Fantastic.
Shooting - His shooting is poor. He will score one or two. But they will only come when you are 3 goals up. He go's on adventures then to tap them in.
Height - this is more apparant if he is starting your games. By the 75th minute he seems to lose his aerial prowess and you notice he is quite short. Perhaps related to stamina? (his stamina itself isn't a problem though...)
