Bought this sterling at around 385k on PS4 and was wondering if he was actually worth that amount considering Messi is only going for 315k. I have him linked to my boi jesus ice and currently playing sterling at LM in a 442. First couple of games he was a bit fraudulent with some dodgy passes and shots, but his dribbling and pace were sensational. I stuck with him for a few more games and he really game to life with 9 assists and 6 goals in 10 games at the LM position. Since he is left footed with no finesse shot trait I play him on the left to whip balls into the box or score across goal finishes instead of doing the cut inside and finesse which you would do with a Messi for example. Anyway, overall he is a solid card for anyone who needs a BPL RM or LM.
(elite division - 1900 skill rating)
- Pace (acceleration is ridiculous)
- Shooting (not insane but with a hawk he bangs in most opportunities)
- Dribbling (legit better than Messi, this guy turns quicker than a Gazelle being chased by a Cheetah)
- Passing was decent, nothing special but gets the job done.
- Stamina (lasts 90 mins, extra time you probably wanna super sub)
- Physical (he is not that strong but a hawk chem style helps)
- Plays for Man City (hate those oil merchants)
- Slightly pricey imo
