Giorgio Chiellini - 88 - IF
Honestly Surprising!

Got him in my red picks this morning, and didn't really know how to feel about the pull... just decided to build a super quick squad and also try 3-5-2 in game. Played Chiello as the middle CB among the 3 ones and was fairly impressed on the pitch. Good placement allowed him to get decent push offs with his strength, and speed (with a shadow) was honestly decent, but couldn't get back to players with more than 85 speed. Also was really impressed with his slid tackles, reaching up every time for the ball.

But then, things didn't turn out really bright when tried in a 2 CB set : couldn't cover any gap and always got caught when opponents would play through balls, and as I mentioned once he's beat you can't catch up.

Overall decent CB, if you can incorporate him in your squad without changing anything go ahead, but don't build around him, a lot of defenders in his price range are way better.
