Player Review

Diego Maradona - 97 - Icon
R2 + Square = Goal
By jesusmorales, 25-09-2020

Let's keep it short and efficient. I think one guy at EA was just boring about the game and said: "let's create a monster".

First of all I have to say that I had his baby card with more than 1400 games. Then I bought this one but was not impressed at the beginning and sold him back. Few days later I sniped him at 3.4M and said to myself: Let's try him again.

WHAT A PLAYER. WHAT A MONSTER. Now with a better gameplay he became an absolute nightmare to my opponents...

Best reason to buy:

Because this guy will give you some fun in the game such as Neymar or R10 and helps you to really enjoy nice football and forget about all those guys playing with Kent / Adama / James

Because el pipe de oro is the only one you see on the pitch when you have this guy

Best way to play him:

Definitely as a CAM in 4231 or 41212

Give him the ball and don't hesitate to dribble with him, shoot from outside the box, and organize the game around the box

Best of him:



Finesse shoot... completely cracked

Best Chem style:

For me the best chem style to use with him is Hawk

If you have the budget and ask yourself what player you want to use for fun just go for him. Messi TOTY or Messi TOTSSF is not even close to the level of this beast.

The only CONS will be his 3* weak foot. If you play with him you can forget his right foot.

I recommend you to put the Argentinian National Anthem when you start playing with him...





  • 3* weak foot... if he was 5* he would be the best player of the game
  • Stamina ... You can see Maradona is not taking drugs because min 70" you must change him (We trust you Diego ... We trust you Diego Armando Maradona)
  • Price. 3.6M is a bit expensive ... His price should be around 2.8M

Formation: 4231
Position: GK

Good but not good enough for the price

Used him as an attacking CM and ST with Pele and R10 next to him. His body type, height and balance really improve his strength especially with a hawk which was a great positive tbh it feels more like 90 strength. I love the way he does skills and moves with the ball but his 3*WF and workrates let him down and ruin the card for me. Save 2 mil and get the mid if you want a Maradona.
