I saved up for quite a while to buy this player, as I have untradable neymar and now verrati so hes a perfect way to get them all on full chem. I Played him on 10 chem at both Striker and Cam in a 4-2-3-1 and I have to say I'm a little dissapointed. Being my first big purchase, he doesn't seem to be worth the massive 700k I invested in him. Though not a bad player by any means, he doesn't have that it factor that a Fekir or a neymar have, which is astounding considering hes worth more than both combined. All in all, he has very good pace, though not elite. I played him with a hawk at first and he does make great runs in behind and has great positioning. His dribbling again is good not great, as he has slick movement but felt a tadddd bit clunky at times. His shooting I think was his biggest issue for me, as he finishes good chances but I thought hed be scoring worldies for me and oftentimes his shot didnt seem as powerful or as precise as I wanted it to be, squandering some of the harder to score chances. His passing and physical were elite however, as he does offer a lot on the attack, he's just not a killer upfront.

Pace dribbling and passing combined with great positioning are big pluses, as his medium medium work rates which scared me at first werent a problem at all. He was often times in great positions and his one twos with Neymar were a joy. I cant say enough about his passing, as it was very well weighted and calculated on a grand majority of occasions.

The one big con that I have with this card has to be his shooting. Ive gotten better results from the likes of Dybala, Fekir, etc. He scored plenty but there were numerous times were I took chances to let him showcase his finishing and he let me down. At one point I even slapped a marksman and a finisher on him to try him out but to no avail. All in all, a very decent card that offeres great links but not the best shot.

Sheesh.

Managed to snipe him when he was extinct. If you're running a ligue 1 squad, pele is a must. His R1 dribbling is something to behold, mainly because his 95 agility is exactly that. But the best part.. The best part of this card is the INSTANT acceleration. Its absolutely ridiculous, one of the few players that can literally sprint through whole defenses. Sure his shooting is great, his passing is crisp and his dribbling is ...

The False Pele

First of all, bought him yesterday, played with him and at the beginning even if I tried him as a stiker it didn't work that well, then I change formations and some players and then he started appearing all the time doing incredible precise passes. From 12 games the times he has given ben yedder an incredible assist are so many. So I recommend him putting as cam (his perfect position) a...
