So it's very late to do reviews on him, and he isn't meta or anything... but he's stayed in my squad from the beginning. I play rivals div 3 (kinda stuck there) and I basically finish around gold 2 weekend league.
With my 3-5-2, the wide players have to be able to do any and everything to an acceptable level... and he does just that. My DM positions have both Llorente and Valverde so there's adequate cover if he's caught out, this WILL happen against high pressing teams.
I've tried a few other higher rated LBs but I think he's the most balanced for a la liga based 3-5-2.
Just don't expect goals and assists from him, he's more or less a workhorse in this formation.
High defensive and offensive work rate.
Adept at almost everything.
Playing in the 3-5-2 he will get a lot of space to work with against mid to low defensive tactics, you can easily have the chance to stick to the line and cross or if further in drive in for a shot.
He can volley! (with hunter)
Combination of balance, strength and dribbling stats make him very dependable on the ball (he is no Neymar though)
Not an aerial threat
Will need to sub-off if played in the 3-5-2
He isn't going to play defense splitting passes
