Roy, Roy, Roy. Bought him because i was on the look for a cheap icon with decent stats. I was thinking about litmanen, but then this guy pops up, and i remember the screamer he made on Alfie Haaland. I then looked at his aggression and defensive stats and knew that this man was exactly what i was looking for. Not much of a goalscorer, actually a pretty terrible finisher, but who cares?. I used him on CDM in 4-1-2-1-2(2) and 4-2-2-2 and on CM in a 4-4-2 with a shadow.
Imo dont use him anywhere else than CDM. Does very good with a partner, but actually even better alone, like in the 4-1-2-1-2. I put him on stay back, cover center, which works really good. If you want, you can put him on 'cut passing lane' or "man mark"
He was very good at picking up lose balls and reading passes, alsp a very good intercepter. Phsycally strong aswell. His agressio nsoemtimes make him fly into the opponent which will be a 50/50 freekick chance. Also he made a penalty once, even though i didn't control him at all!! DONT DRIBBLE WITH HIM!! He will probably screw up and lose it if you try to pass an opponent in 1v1, but very good ball control and calm on the ball. Passes absolutely astonishing, made some really good passes. His pace is actually ok, not crazy kante style but he didn't feel slow with a shadow.
