I loved watching this guy play in MLS and I don't really have a proper like-for-like sub for Messi on my bench, so I thought what the hell. This guy plays pretty much exactly how I thought he would. Tiny, fast, agile, close control, great shooting, excellent passing. He's the type of guy that gets tackled 3, 4, 5, a half dozen times before he loses the ball, then immediately wins it back. Really does feel like the poor man's GOAT. I swear he's got a cephalopod trait that allows him to expand and contract his body at will to get in and out of tight spaces where a normal man could not.
Acceleration is great out of tight spots but he's not going to outrun most meta defenders, which I feel like Messi is usually pretty capable of. I was subbing him on so stamina was no issue for me. He's an absolute dwarf and won't win a single contested header in any situation, but you should still try because it's hilarious watching him only get about chest high with his jump.
