I saw his card and it was clear for me to get him, because he looks very similar to my other two CM/CDMs and what should I say? He is awesome IG. His dribbling is very nice, his passing can be a game changer and his freekicks are insane too. He lacks a bit in pace (end speed), but that is okay, since he can outdribble most of the opponents when you stay calm and concentrate while playing. I use him as a offensive midfielder next to Goretzka, while Kimmich stay back and fill up my 5 man defense with his good abilites. JWP was maybe my best addition here and I tried out many other CMs before like Kante, Douglas Louiz, Bruno Fernandes, different Bundesliga CMs and also different BPL CMs and some special cards.
- very agile on and off the ball
- can be used in offensive and defense
- great passing and dribbling
- very nice long shots and free kicks, for sure, but also good at kickin' corners in
- can hold the ball against most of the players in the game
- his "end speed" is a bit low, but when you use him just as a playmaker and to pull out some long shots, its not a real downer here imo
