Ibra....how to get the best out of him

As the title suggests I am struggling to get the best out of Ibra (91 rated).

I had him as the middle CAM in 4-2-3-1 Narrow formation. He feels too slow and cumbersome and is always getting closed down, I'm not forcing the ball to him all the time...

Ben Yedder is my striker and I love this little dude....feels like a player that costs +500K so he's staying at striker.

I don't mind changing formation to accommodate the two of them

So....how do I get the best out of him?

    Get him close to the box and do that annoying spin turn which is impossible to defend .

    LT-RT is almost unstoppable when used correctly with Zlatan. Also use him as a target man to build up play and I find his long shots are a goal or a corner everytime. And inside the box it's a certain goal

    Even his not so great shots get parried away.

    this, hes basically unstoppable if you have just a little patience to position him correctly

    All his versions do that, he only works for me in 433 as CF/CAM/ST, anything else and he is a glorified winger/wide cam.

    Anyway OP try a 433 with him as CAM, he plays like a second striker this way but stays central

    What you need to do is, go to the squad screen, press x on him, pick list on market, sell him, then use the funds to buy Kluivert, problem solved

    That's like selling a ferrari to buy a fiat punto. Kidding... But Ibra is better if you know how to use it.

    Should give SIF Lewandowski a try, I had him as ST and Ibra as CAM and he was much better

    Play him CAM in 41212. The default Cam in 4231 is further back compared to 41212. Also se him to free roam and stay forward and he always stays up the pitch. I play him at CAM 41212 over 100 goals with him and I have tried 4231 and it didnt work as well.
