Radja Nainggolan - 88 - Headliners
4.5
The engine of your team
By Huibert, 27-01-2020

Hey everyone,


Last week I was building a new team. Now keep in mind, I play this game for fun, so I use players who are fun to play with.

When the headliner-promo came out, I instantly knew Nainggolan was my man. First of all, the card design looks sick, and Nainggolan looked just amazing. So I bought him.

He won't get many ugrades though, maybe 1 or 2 from informs, but Cagliari just isn't a team that wins four games in a row. A shadow/hunter on this card is highly recommended.


In my team (4-5-1 but 4-2-3-1 in game) he plays as the right CDM, next to prime Keane. The first thing I noticed was Nainggolan's attacking drive. Even though he's set as a CDM, he still managed to score loads of goals. Don't worry about his defensive choirs, this guy has infinite lungs. It's pretty fun to see him running back like a madman. ;)

He's solid in defence, but I would strongly suggest using him in a more attacking role (CM or CAM), his shotpower is outstanding.

One thing to notice is his first-touch. Sometimes it bounces off his feet, but It's nothing to worry about.


And yes, he has a in-game face. Make sure you like his 'style' of haircut. ;)

Nainggolan is Back!!!

I'd been looking at this card for the past couple of weeks, weighing up if I should buy him or not. I've bought Nainggolan countless times over the years, but the past couple of seasons he's seemed a bit off which made me hesitant. I was also running with a Bundesliga team with lots of untradeable players which was performing really well for me. Buying Nainggolan would mean I'd have to totally switch up my line up. Then one...

Best CM I've tried this year

This is my first review, but I thought I must do it to express my respect to Radja, about what he has done in real life, and to be honest the feelings you get in-game by using this player is just phenomenal. I've been using him since 2017, and even this year, with reduced speed, I still consider him to be one of the best CM in game. I've tried all versions of him throughout the year, and I enjoyed all of them. I like short ...

An absolute beast RADja nainggolan

best cdm/cm in the game! I have had nainggolan since day one starting with his 83 to his 86 before buying his headliners as an 87 and now an 88. I’ve partnered him up with the likes of prime essien, scream sabitizer, headliners Delaney and he’s better than everyone else. He just dominates the whole midfield winning every ball and can carry and distribute it well as well to start attacks. He is also alw...
