As above, kinda struggling with him as he's pretty static. RF in a 4321 or RW in some kind of 433?

I've tried both but only for a couple of games. Maybe I am possibly forcing it to him or expecting too much. I just can't seem to get him involved. Kluivert as striker with Veron behind.

    If you can't play him out of position I would say rw in a false 9

    Start as RF in 4321. Switch to any formation with a CCAM and move him there.
  • I've just used for the first time on 17.
    RF then switch to CAM in game.
    Absolute class in both position can dribble out of most situations like I've not seen other players do

    False 9, CAM,RF 4321, or RW in a false 9. He's amazing anywhere honestly.

    Ok I might try him at RW in a false 9, and maybe swap him to CF in game. With that in mind, who would you start at CF? Currently got Kluivert, not sure he's suited to that role, he's certainly not suited to being swapped to RW if I do the in game swap.

    For me, his best position is at right ST on a 2 st formation where the other striker has a High attacking mentality (H/H, H/M or H/L)

    If you're going to do a swap then Griezmann is the perfect in game move imo. Not really any legend cf's that would fit the bill for a rw in game. I would try Kluivert first and if you like Messi at rw, keep him, or if you have the extra coins go for Berg. If not you can always go the Griezmann route
