So to start with before i say anything i think everyone will agree with me when i say 3.2 million coins is disappointing for zlatan. Not because of the stats just due to the fact that i know so many people (Me included) love this guy as a player and loved his classic FIFA 19 card and the hefty price tag means that only people with a lot of hours or packluck can afford him.
I am an elite division 2200SR player and i can instantly state i am not disappointed with this card in game at all. I know the meta is usually pacey players with agility balance and the ability to turn at lightning speed. Obviously Ibra lacks some of these qualities making him a bit confusing to understand at first but eventually i figured out how to utilise him and made progress.
His shooting is devastating when in the right positions and his positioning and quality of his runs is extremely consistent. He does turn like a truck if you try and do to much on the ball with him but he can do skills with ease and changing of direction is decent enough to shift a centre back and create space. His aerial ability is an obvious advantage, being 6'5 he wins corners and crosses with ease as well as being able to hold back a defender from catching up once in behind. His pace is also very good once you get going i find if he is clear in behind nothing stops him and he can chase down through balls just not to the extent of a shorter more agile player.
Although these are all positive points is he really worth 3 mil? Personally i think that i would spend 2 mil on him as he is a great card and a fantastic finisher but for 3.1 mil a mid cruyff is just as good and offers similar qualities while being easier to link. I am aware that i am lucky to be able to afford a card like this and not everyone plays as much as me to be able to buy him, but if you really are stuck on wether to buy him just go for it. As said before He is nothing like a quick striker with pace that can outpace varane and kimpembe but if like me you wanted to have some fun and put him into your team you will not regret it at all.
I'm aware my review may not be the greatest but i just want to share my opinion and hope this helps a few people struggling to decide.
- Pace in some scenarios
- Holding the ball for to long
