The player you can't hate, returns in all of his glory.
Santi is loved universally and I for one was ecstatic to see him receive a TOTSSF card - especially after his 2016 career-threatening injury and told he may never walk again. This little magician is pure football.
I have played 12 games with him this WL in CAM with a Dead-eye and he's simply amazing (10 goals, 9 assists). We're talking 99 Finishing, 99 Positioning, 99 Shot power, 98 Long shots, 99 Vision, 99 Crossing, 99 Short passing, 94 Long Passing, 99 Curve, 94 Free Kick, 99 Balance, 99 Ball Control, 99 Composure, 99 aggression and 95 Dribbling. He also has an incredible 5 star weak foot all for (At the time of writing this) for 215,000 which is a STEAL!!!
The man glides on the ball ever so smoothly when dribbling. His through balls and vision are those I can only compare with real life Messi.
He's received a pace upgrade of around 34+ and his 99 aggression gives him the ability to rough defenders off the ball… yes I'm talking all 5 foot 6 of him out-muscling Van Dijks and Ramos's, which I admit even I thought was a bit too unbelievable, but that's what he is… Unbelievable.
I've seen people play him at ST, I haven't tried myself but have feedback that his stamina can be a little too low for that position. I would recommend keeping him in the midfield.
Overall, Santi 100% deserves this card and the statistics reflect his career quite nicely - maybe his future Icon card? At the price this card is going for (215k) is an absolute bargain and I recommend if you can link him in to your squad and have the funds for his, there aren't too many that will do it as beautifully as Cazorla.
5-star weak foot
