Thought I'd just give people a review as you've only got a few days to do him.
Used him for 12 games tonight and nothing but impressed with how he's performed for me. Played 6 rivals games in Elite with just over 1800 points, and 6 champs qualifiers.
Plus side to this card is I think Inter will win against Atalanta. They've lost 2 games all season if I'm right with 1 being Real Madrid. So if you're worried about him not upgrading, I dont think Inter will lose.
Been fairly basic with instructions etc. Just on Stay Back, Overlap in a 4231 whilst running the backbone chem style. I know a lot of you guys will go for Shadows and Anchors but for me he feels way too quick already so would rather max out some defending and physical instead but people have their preferences.
Pace- He's quick. His recovery pace is very good and he has good agility so I think its been hard for wingers to get past him. For someone who's 6ft with an average build he's virtually like Hakimi.
Shooting- n/a for me I haven't took a shot with him.
Passing- High composure with good passing stats. Long passing down the wings has been good. Long passing into the middle and switching have been very good too.
Dribbling- I run down the wing a lot with my fullbacks and he's been showing it's his area to dominate when he's attacking. Good with the ball at his feet and turns quick with the ball too.
Defending and Height- Would hope a fullback could defend tbf. Defending has been really solid for me. Found it easier to defend wingers and mainly people skilling too because I've found him quite aggressive too. Hasn't made a mistake for me, yet. 6'0", wins a lot of duels and his heading accuracy is not bad either.
Physical- High stamina to fly up and down the pitch, very aggressive and out strengths the bigger opponents in more tense parts of the game too.
5* weak foot- Need I say anything about a 5* weak foot?
Work Rates- When being counter attacked, you wont be screaming at your fullback not being there. His intelligence to stay back and only attack when it's necessary has been sick.
3* skills- I know this is an issue for some people if you attack a lot with fullbacks but for the most of it, it helps you to know mess about pulling berba spins off 24/7.
What an incredible player!
I play in Elite division like everyone else - 12 wins in Fut Finals if i grind. (Gold 1 in the old system)
I often use fullbacks in the midfield with the likes of Ferland Mendy, Max Cornet and other H/H options - on 7 chem (RM/LM in setup)
But this guy... damn. I could see the potential right away and completed him to link in my Chiesa TOTT / FB Chiellini just for fun in this squad.
He is a great escape artist out of pressure with the 5* WF and descent strength
He has a few incredible assists, but in general he lays off the ball to Aouar/Fekir for offensive plays
Also a beast at CB, but the options there are so many - good M/H CDM's on the other hand... scarse.
-DEF Positioning (M/H)
-Air supremacy (94 Jumping)
-Recovery Pace - Tracks back very fast
-5* WF (needs less time to create passing lanes)
-92 DEF Awareness
-Great at cutting passing lanes if you dont control him
-Short quick lay-offs with both feet
-80 Long passing
-Average B/T is noticable, but 5* WF compensates the average dribbling. Engine would help at the cost of aggression
So i have been a rat and i put this guy on cb. I can say that this guy is one of the best centerbacks i have ever used. With kounde freeze he is just incredible. All maches played in wl and elite division on rivals.
So fast he can easily over run players like mbappe
so good heading
he has so good dribbling and he can be used also as an cdm
he is so strong
