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. ;)
