This card was a must get at first glance for me, links to hl Lozano and replaces Tonali as box to box(who is also an amazing card, I just thought zielinski is better). I bought for 109k and use him with anchor as a b2b paired with HL goretzka at CM in 4-2-2-2.
What can I say, he is simply a machine, he’s always in the right position. Always present in defence outside the box, and is always there when attacking. His stamina is good and is around halfway by the end of the game. You could say strength could be better but it’s enough imo(81 with anchor) and bodies most attackers off the ball.
The 4* 5* is amazing aswell.
+The noticeable one is shooting with 92 shot power and 99 long shots, every shot is a threat and he will score if in good position. He makes runs into box when my attackers are looking for options which is great as you can have confidence in him scoring from there aswell.
+Dribbling. It feels smooth and is great to have on a player for keeping the ball after winning it and dribbling past defenders when attacking
+Pace. Nothing to say, 94 pace with anchor for a box to box player is enough(for me). He can chase down pretty much any player when defending and no problem beating the opponent when on the counter.
+Passing is also really good. He just doesn’t mess them up whether it’s short or long(quite obvious with those stats)
-Interceptions? Maybe I’m not positioning him right all the time but there are situations where I feel like he could’ve reached for a ball but misses it. Not too much to worry as he makes up for it with great tackling.
•4* 5* !!!
