Rodrigo - 91 - TOTS Obj
Amazing free option
By espnrocksalot, 30-04-2021

A quick opinion, but Rodri is a fantastic holding midfielder. For context, I got an untradeable Kante back in November that I have used until this Rodri came out.

With his pace and defending very little gets by, and when he pushes up he's in the right place at the right time to finish just about any loose ball.

As he's 6'3 the 78 jumping wasn't really noticeable. He is a beast at defending and has a very good reach as he's tall.He also has g...

Best Defensive Midfielder I've Used

I've been looking for a solid defensive midfielder who can play a bit for ages. I've used Kante since day one really, I've tried Kimmich, Gundogan, Wijnaldum, Fer amongst many more but I always went back to Kante because of his balance and agility when jockeying.
