Youssofou Niakate Review - Cheap Mbappe?
By meadoh, 11-12-2019

When I saw this card come out I instantly thought he'd be like a cheap Mbappe, who I'd used before but sold to upgrade other parts of my team. I was extremely disappointed when I finally used him. He was pretty terrible and I already built a new squad and benched him.


When you compare his card to Mbappe it seems like a slightly downgraded version, only with more pace. In game, he is awful. He does not feel fast at all. He does have insane agility, and used him with a sniper, but his dribbling and shooting still didn't deliver. He was only really good on squad battles for me. His skill moves also hurt the card a lot since dribbling is already pretty average. Personally I don't enjoy left footed players unless they have 5* weak foot like Dembele, with the exception of Griezmann, but his weak foot was quite nice.


I used him as a striker in a 4-2-3-1 on get in behind and expected him to burn people, but due to his work rates he barely made good runs and always just stood there waiting for the ball, which is not what this card is for.


This card is all around bang average, and since his main trait is pace, I was so disappointed to play with him when he didn't even feel that fast.


Unless you have a team with a few icons or lots of french players, it's really hard to link him, and with how average he was playing him on 6-8 chem would be even worse.


This is the absolute biggest waste of 150-200k ever.


Played 10 rivals with him in div 4 and he scored 5 goals and had 3 assists, mostly from cut back tap ins or rebound goals. He only had 1 good run on a 1v1 goal and his finesse was trash, and absolutely shanked it.

A man possed

I don't know where to start, to praise this fella. Pacy,agile and cold as ice in front of the goal. I played him with Mbappe and Ben Yedder, and all of those tend to run circles around the defenders, and just score, and score, and score. This guy is really fast, and agile, but also got enough physicality to manhandle defenders. He also might only be 1.8 meters tall, but his 99 jumping makes him a real heading threat. Also h...

Incredible.

This man is absolutely insane. I play him in a 442 along with OTW Ben Yedder as the strikers. He finishes absolutely everything and feels incredibly fast in game. Dribbling is great with 99 agility, however sometimes his ball control lets him down. Definitely worth the money. I mainly play Div 4 Rivals and FUT Champs with him and his record is still unreal.
