88 - FUT Birthday SBC
4.5
Mangala
By Migman1, 31-03-2021

Right after it came out in SBC I had to test it. It is solid, large, but quite fast. Despite her large physique, she has 87 agility. To please a FIFA 21 player, he must have at least 96, but remember that your left-back (Ferland Mendy) only has 80. Mangala has a hyperlink with the aforementioned Mendy. SBC only costs 250,000. His 93 strength causes only Adebayo Akinfenwa to push him. After this review you won't change your mind about Varane, but if you play with him, you won't even Maldini. He is the best CB in game. Test it and enjoy it as much as I do.

Mangala
By Jaaron97, 02-04-2021

This is my first ever player review so please bare with me.



Where to start, where to start... this guy is a TANK.


So far i've used in him 10-15 division rivals games and i can safely say the guy has never lost out in a tackle. He's big, he's strong, and he feels way faster than the 80 pace suggests.

The high balance and agility means that he feels great when turning to run and chase the attackers. I won't lie, he won't catch up to the likes of your Mbappe's but he'll do a job on most other players.

I play him alongside FUT Birthday Hermoso so next to a quick and agile center back partner he works really well. Mangala does all the big Makelele tackles and the big headers whilst Hermoso mops up all the loose balls and does the majority of the chasing.

Whilst on the subject on heading ability, if you take control of Managla on a corner and bring him to the front post he's either scoring or at least making the GK work very hard. Defensive headers he's winning 9/10 easily, i mean how often is it you face a striker (apart from CR7) who can actually head the ball?!


Currently operating in a 4-3-1-2 formation with both fullbacks set as default for attack/defence, even when outnumbered he performs better than he should, often in a 3 vs 2 situation i find his interceptions and aggression perfect for what i need him to do. His work rates are ideal.


The weak foot upgrade isn't really that necessary for a CB but it certainly helps when trying to build from the back, or when under pressure you can rely on him to find a pass more often than not. He rarely misplaces a pass long or short.


Believe it or not, there are some weaknesses to his game, however the strengths far outweigh the weaknesses. The only weakness i have really noticed is the initial speed to catch attackers, but if you do as i do, and play with at least one really pacy CB this guy will do wonders for you.


In summary, if you do this card you'll get a fantastic CB, who is strong, quick, good on the ball and can pass out from the back.

The Beast Mangala
By SupersaveJ, 06-04-2021

If you want a strong defender that covers space and can tackle to perfection this is your man. I've used him for 30 games and he doesn't fail to impress. He can take the ball of Mbappe and with his pace and 5* weak foot can send the striker through on goal afterwards. He can't catch up with the likes of Mbappe and Neymar once they're past him but he can tackle them before they get the ball and intercept passes. Another part of his game is his aerial threat. He thrives from corners with his height and power header trait and can header the ball in and in defense he can clear crosses.

Many people love using Varane, but i think it's too late to use rare golds, it's time to use specials.

Mangala is a BEAST. Literally NO ONE can overcome him physically.

His pace is really good depending on his body.

He is a bit overpriced, but that's okay if you have fodder.

His passing is great, he assists and gives amazing through balls.

Finally, his headings are too strong as he wins in almost every aerial challenge.


I'm too glad that I did the sbc, especially because i decided to stop using Varane.


P.S: Stop using rare golds, it ruins the game.

  • Physicality.
  • Pace (most players with huge bodies don't have a very high pace).
  • Passing.
  • Height helps him into headers.
  • Amazing slide tackles.
  • 5* WF.
  • If you decide to go for a run with the ball, his dribbling wont let you down.
  • Finally a replacement for overused Varane.
  • Outpaced by very fast players (but who isn't).
  • A bit overpriced.
