Anyone used this slimy ****? Stats look good. Positioning looks good. Price looks good!

- too weak on the ball maybe?

Just looking for some thoughts from whoever has used him!

Thanks!

    He was OK for me, but was weak on the ball. Well worth his price though IMO

    Fantastic for me, stick hunter on him and he will thrive. I play him as a wide CAM and plays like overmars tbh

    Used him as central CAM. Play a couple of good games. Stinkers for the rest. The prefer to use left foot trait really hinders him even if he does have a 4* wf. So I would say not a good long term CAM. But he’s not pricey which is the only plus.

    Feels like an icon when he's got hunter. Unreal finishing, pace and dribbling.

    Unbelievable as CF in 4411 for me. 27 in 27 for me.

    LCAM in 4231 narrow - can't find a better option in PL. Fast (with hunter chem), good passing, left footed, shoots his share of goals.

    To start with I was worried about his strength but you learn to play around it. His finesse shots are the best I've used on this game. I play him at CAM sometimes but he's a bit weak there really. He's best at right sided striker. I put "get in behind" on him and he's won me loads of penalties because his dribbling is so good. Just cut inside and let the good times roll.

    Been using him in my 3-5-2 at CAM. Been great, no complaints.

    Best dribbler i have ever used, the way he exits skill moves is insane. His passing is really good too. I found his shooting average and he was just too weak if you got too close to anyone he you just give them the ball. I sold for a loss after using him for the weekend league

    I use him RCAM in a 4231 and cutting in on the left foot is deadly, get a hunter on him and goes past players easily
