When I packed this beautiful card in my mid icon pack I was full of jubilation. Just look at his card and you can see why his price tag is so high. He has all the right stats in the right areas and that additional 5* WF 4*Skill combo is the finishing touch. I played him at CAM in a 4-2-3-1 (with a basic chem style), but I had him come back on defence, given the fact that he is really well-rounded. Let's start with:
Pace: As a CAM he had a suitable amount of pace, enough to get past of most players in the midfield.
Shooting: Everything about his shooting was perfect, he was always in the right position and finished most shots I took with him.
Dribbling: Given his height of 6ft3, he felt very good on the ball, definitely better than other players of the same height.
Defending: His body shape made him so effective at winning the ball back, he covers very well and wins loads of interceptions.
Passing: One of the best passers in the game, whether on the right foot or left foot, 9 times out of 10, the ball will reach the target.
Physical:His presence on the pitch is felt immediately, he runs for the whole game and shrugs players off with ease.
The list goes on
Price, but he is the best box to box midfielder in the game (along with his other cards)
