I fortunately packed a Thiago Silva this year in an untradeable two player pack. Luckily for me this means that he walks into my team every game regardless of how good or bad he was the game before.
Now I have played 51 games with Thiago Silva and honestly I’m quite impressed. His ratios look like 51 games, 2 goals, and 0 assists. Only picking up 2 yellow cards and a single red card in 51 games is some achievement. Partnered with David Luiz, then Marquinhos and now Kimpembe, he has really outperformed all defensive partners.
His pace isn’t great this year but still he manages to catch defenders like previous FIFA’s. I would definitely recommend if you are struggling to defend through balls as his reactions are fantastic to cut out the pass.
Overall a fantastic CB card!!
- Cutting out through balls
- Work rates
- Defensive positioning
- Linking with him is hard... Although Kimpembe is good, goalkeepers are awful (inc. Buffon)
