I really stagnated on my old team and needed a new one. Because I got ripped of by EA a lot the last Weekend League I told myself f*ck it : I wont sweat for the win anymore. I started to make a team with players I love/loved to see playing in real life.
The first player that came to my mind was Klose, my absolute childhood hero. From the last Fifa parts I knew he was never meta but always fun to play with.
And let me first say, I don´t think he is the right choice if u need fast players that outrun Varane and co. If you play Klose you have to know exactly how to set him in scene.
I know an Engine would fit him better, but I went with the Hunter to max out his speed.
He is no Mbappe, but his Sprints are quiet decent. He wont be able to outrun defenders like Gomez or Varane. But if you play the right pass and get behind the defending line, he is fast enough to not let the defenders get closer.
He will not be able to put the ball in from outside the box. Thats something I realised really quick. BUT if you reach the penalty area....ITS SIMPLY OVER. This dude (as long as he is in the box) gets every ball out of every position in. You could do a blind headstand and he would still put the ball in, absolutely amazing imo.
He isnt very agile, wont turn fast and wont dribble out your opponents defender. But thats simply not how you should play him. Nevertheless : his ball control is quiet good, and you wont have problems keeping the ball with him.
He wont knock out Van Dijk but no defender was able to bully my Klose away from the ball. Yeah, Varane and Gomez might outrun him, but they wont be able to take him down.
The only downside is his heading. I remember him from 20 as he was better then CR7 in terms of heading, but this year it isnt notable that his heading stats are nearly 99.
For me, there was no header goal or even a dangerous header by Klose. It didnt bothered me because I dont do crosses a lot.
Defending : he is no defender and he stays forward as I told him
