He's the perfect box-to-box player. I play 4-4-2 with the LCM on stay back while attacking and the RCM on balanced (Nkunk). And he's the perfect player for that role. The main stats for this position is pace and dribbling and alright defending, passing and physical(sespcially stamina and he has 89 so that's good). His stats are pefect for the role and he plays just like that in game.
Pace: You want 85+ pace on you CMs at this stage and his 87 is great, so with a shadow it's almost at max. I had his Rulebreaker and it's also great but a little outtated now if you play a lot and have much coins.
Shooting: Not that important imo, even though he will come to a decent amount of shooting locations as he's on balanced. But his shooting is really good for a CM so that's just a positive.
Passing: 92 short passing and all other stats are also really good. Didn't feel anything wrong with his passing and that'a a great review.
Dribbling: You want like 88+ on your box-to-box CM and his 92 is really good. Felt really good on the ball.
Defending and physical: Good/good enough for you box-to-box. You wan't high 70s+ for your box-to-box CM and that's exactly what he has. Nothing to complain about here, he's doing exactly what he's supposed to to.
Usually headliners/upgradable cards are overpriced/very overpriced compared to their current stats bacuse they have chances to be upgraded but I really think this card is worth this price even if he weren't to be upgraded. He's that good
Dribbling and the fact that that he's so perfect for that box-to-box role. Havin NO con apart from 4* WF says a lot.
The ONLY con is the 4* WF but that's not a problem imo.
