This card looked really good and fit my team, so finally after some hours I finally got him and played 6 games in Rivals. At first I thought of putting at CB because he was strong, and had a great defending . Def awareness was a little low but he looked really good and with shadow he would reach everyone. But I saw he was 175cm so I played him at CDM. He was really good and no one could pass him. He bodied every striker and reach most. His passes are good, and his dribbling is decent. The important thing was his defending and his was absolutely amazing. I liked his H/H because he also helped to attack, but he was never outside of position. And even tho he was constantly running he didn’t get tired because his stamina is really good. You could say 3* wf and skills is bad, and yes it is but he actually has better skills and wf than some top class CDM.
When I saw that ea released this monster of a card, I knew I had to do him immediately. He had a perfect link to my Rulebreaker Inaki Williams, so it was a no-brainer to take a bit of my time to do this card.
The grind for him was way easier than grinding for bellerin, the objectives aren't too challenging at all.
I used him as a defensive minded centre mid because of his 94 stamina, but he would definitely work equally as fine in a centre back role, or even as a fullback.
He felt so quick and agile on defense and on offense. Compared to other defensive midfielders I have used, this guy was miles ahead. He could catch up to any player on the pitch.
I didn't get many shooting oppurtunites with him and I don't suggest taking many shots with him due to his 64 finishing. However, the 94 shot power that he possesses will help him get a few past the keeper when an oppurtunity arises inside the box.
He doesn't make any errant passes and completes them almost all the time. His through balls were exquisite and put my forwards through on goal quite a few times.
His combination of pace, driibbling and strength makes him so hard to knock off the ball. His dribbling feels great, left stick dribbling is real solid and gets past opposing defenders.
His positioning and his interceptions made him extremely adept at cutting passing lanes and winning the ball back. He rarely missed a tackle, and made great defensive plays when needed. Due to his high defensive workrates, he would be all over the pitch. A monster defensively.
Here is where he dominated the most. No one is getting past this rock of a player. He's got the whole physical package. With an anchor, he has 92 jumping, 94 stamina, 97 strength and 92 aggression. Game after game, he would outmuscle anyone who would dare come near him. He wins his aerial battles, and has enough stamina to run around the entire pitch and be a forceful presence for the entire 90 minutes.
Overall, he is the best defensive midfielder I have ever used. I don't care who you are, what team you run or what division you're in, GET THIS GUY.
After Completing the card in a few hours I can say it was definitely worth it. I played him in a 41212(2) as a CDM with anchor and he was amazing, Pace- Pace is really good nothing to complain about here, top tier pace for a cdm. Shooting- The finishing is not great but the 94 shot power definitely help him put away any easy chances. Passing- his passing is good but not great his 85 short passing is definitely adequate but 71 long passing does let him down sometimes. Dribbling- his dribbllng is definitely a pro of the card 88 balance and 82 agility is definitely good for a cdm and he is good on the ball. Defending- He is just really good at defending his slide and stand tackling is great and his relatively high interceptions make him a beast on the defensive end. Physically- This is where this card really shines 97 strength (with anchor) is just awesome and he bully's people of the ball with ease, 94 stamina also makes sure that he is still going even in extra time. Overall, this is a very good objective card he doesn't take that long to complete and he is really good definitely with stay in my starting 11 for a while.

-High High might be a problem for some people that want to play him at CDM (it wasn't a problem for me).
