I decided to complete Clauss' sbc because of my team that mostly has French players (as you can see in my squad below).
Many of you will ask before completing his sbc: "Is he better than Hakimi?" The answer is: yes.
His pace is a little bit weaker, but don't worry, applying an Anchor chemstyle will help boosting his pace.
So, let's head into the review.
I had no problems with his pace at all and it's not a surprise. He can outrun every winger, and that's the main thing that comes to my mind when I want to replace one of my fullbacks. So don't worry, he will be as fast as like Mbappé. He has no problems with accelerating and sprinting as well.
I haven't shot with him yet, but I don't think it will happen in the future either, as I use him as RB.
Quite consistent passing, I must say. In this game the passing is so much important than last year, so many of you will have a look at his passing stats. I had no problems with his passing at all - sometimes, his long passes were quite long, but other than that his passing is decent.
He has 95 agility which is a very good stat for him. His dribbling is so so good. Even though he has 3* skills, you can dribble him as much as you can, he's very fast on the ball.
Applying an Anchor chemstyle for him will boost his defending stats, which is very important for him as his default defending stats are 80 rated. But ignoring that, his defending is very good. As I mentioned, he can outrun every winger and can get the ball from them easily. Standings tackles are so op for him, he can tackle everyone in the box as well.
His stamina is 99... I don't think I have to say anything on that. He won't get tired after 90 minutes. I guarantee you. As for the physical abilities, he's not the strongest and the most aggressive player on the wings, but I don't think he needs to be. With anchor, his strength is 85 and his aggression is 83. I think these are very good stats for a fullback. He won't have problems thaking the ball from the opponent, as I mentioned a few times already.
All in all, I can only say that if you don't have a better fullback and you have the opportunity and a Ligue 1/French team, complete him as soon as you can. He's gonna be upgraded for sure in the future, and he's a quality fullback to have in your team.
