90 - Icon
Best CDM I've used
By Sowerz, 23-12-2019

Maybe no 4* but he doesn't need them

The bulldozer

This is the best card (midfielder) i have ever used , he is amazing. if you have the tokens for icons swap i would highly recommend. this card is about 10x better than Kante. He wins everything. i use him in a two cdm formation with Prime Roy Keane. He bully's people off the ball , he's super quick and he has insane passing. there are no cons with this card , and he can also rip a long shot.
