Well, where do I start? I was waiting for his price to go down a bit before I was going to buy him. Was watching Castro in the background and he just managed to pack a cheeky TOTY Kanté and was listing the one he had for cheaper, around 1,8 mill. I missed it I got frustrated that I missed such a good snipe, so decided to a PL Premium Players Pack, and the little French God popped out. But it was not before I used him, I understood how good he really was.
He is a machine, he has the defensive qualities of Vieira, Matthaus and every single player you can think off. While having the dribbling of The Goat Messi (without the skills) as well as being so quick that no one gets past him. He is phenomenal, there is nothing this man can`t do. He even puts 20 yards shots right in the top corner and does not miss a pass or shot. He even wins headers, even though that is a small weakness to this immense card. Well worth the price of around 2.2 million, and by far the best CDM I have used. He may as well be an excellent box to box player.
The squad I used (in game) is linked down below, finished Elite 3 this weekend and Kanté played every match.
+ In game knowledge (AI controlling, always in the right place)
- Height and headers
- Skill (But not necessary as a CDM) Would be even greater with 3* skills, because then he would be able to do drag back and heal to heal flicks.
So I was lucky enough to pack this guy in the upgrade packs. Let me tell you this he literally is the best Player all around! He can be the difference in a match for you.
I played him in the CDM position and he scored 19 goals and 8 assists in 30 games played in the weekend league.
I know he is not a attacker, so if your thinking of buying one TOTY Kante probably wouldn't be your choice, but let me tell you he brings more worth to your team than Mane (no offence), De Jong, and any TOTY defender. Maybe even then de Bruyne, as Kante exceeds in every stat possible. So..GET THIS GUY if you're thinking about getting a TOTY player.
- He is everywhere!
- Dribbling aka. the sticky-god
- Defence is amazing, literally all stats that matter are 99
- Shooting was amazing with this card, played as CDM or CM you don't need more shooting than this
- Physical, even tho he is very small, he bodies people, and he was fantastic
- Skills, well if they matter to you
- Weak foot isn't great aswell, didn't notice it tho.
