At the start of the new FIFA cycle, everyone was hyping up the Swiss triangle. Akanji was on everone's radar at the start of the game. After some trading, I decided to make a Bundesliga team with him in my defense and OH MY GOD. How good is he? I don't even know where to start. Heading maybe? I scored 3 corners since the start of FIFA. Little guess who scored them all? Indeed, Big Manuel. He feels also pretty quick. With 70 acceleration and 85 sprint speed, he starts somewhat slow but still catches those semi-fast players. Don't expect him to catch the likes of Vardy and Aubameyang though. He's also almost everytime at the right spot to make a goal-line clearance or to make an ultimate tackle. 74 stamina for a defender is decent but I can sometimes feel he's getting tired at the end of the game. At the moment, I think 30k for a defender is somewhat expensive but he's worth every coin in my opinion. All in all, he's an absolute unit in defense and reminds me of Smalling on FIFA 17!
- Great heading
- Good positioning
- Fast enough
- 74 stamina (not really though)
- Low acceleration (70)
