Frank Rijkaard - 90 - Icon
By Hcfab, 08-08-2020

So I packed this guy out of my prime icon pack and even though I didn't really need him I gave him a try.

The thing is he isn't that bad he is even a pretty good CDM but I think there are too many con's on this card and so many better options on the market for the same price.

I played about 50 games with him and he was VERY inconsistent. He wwas a CDM with a saty back while attacking instructions and an anchor slapped on him. Some games he was the bst star of the team like he intercepted every pass and made god assists but some other games he felt horribly clunky and wasn't able to do a proper pass.

For me at this stage of the games he is definetely not a must buy player and there are soooo many better options.

1) Defending : When he was on a good match he was a brick wall and made some very smooth interceptions

2) You can kinda play him a CB if one of yours gets sent off

1) Passing : He was simply unable to do any clutch pass (which is a HUGE con for a game like this). He can pass but only with his strong foot and without any pressure

2) Shooting : HE COULDN'T FINISH ANY SHOT ! Through those 50 matches he might have scored 5 goals (out of at least 40 shots)

The squad I used him in was in a 4-5-1, Ter Stegen 8 chem GK, 88 Lisandro Lopez LCB, 88 Nesta RCB, 87 Tagliafico LB, 84 Atal RB, Momets Di Maria LM, 88 Enzo Perez CM, 89 Thauvin RM, 87 Acuna LAM, Rijkaard RAM, and 88 Taarabt striker. In-game I played Rijkaard CDM in a 4-1-2-1-2(2) with a shadow. When I saw him pop out of my prime icon pack, I had no clue what to think. His stats looked decent, and...

Great CDM - Complete Player

I had previously used Kante as my CDM but I grew frustrated with his lack of presence in front of the defense and his tackling against stronger midfeilders like Pogba, Sissoko, etc. Rijkaard is so good for me protecting the defense but his distribution and physicality is really what sets him apart from players like Kante. I used him in a 4-3-3 (2) with cut passing lanes, stay back while attacking, and cover center (I don't ...

Unexpected Beast

Ok so I packed him out of the Prime Icon Pack sbc and I wasn´t sure if it´s an L so I tried him with Goretzka Moments and Ndombele Summer heat in the Midfield. He played CDM in the 433(4) Formation ingame and he was/is unexpected good. Almost every pass is a beauty and arrives to the teammate (in my team was it Kamada or Diaby) which leads to many, many goals especially in the first minutes of the Gam...
