I have just packed 88 VVD. For chem reasons I have to move base Maldini from his 7chem CB position to LB. I wonder if Maldini is wasted as a leftback as he is basically the player who is worth the most in my squad(icon sbc).

    He’s very good in either position but is obviously a very defensive full back. If you like a more attacking wing back then I would sell and use the coins to improve elsewhere. 500k+ can do a lot more to your team elsewhere?

    I have been meaning to buy him to try at LB. Certainly can't see him being wasted there if he plays to his stats. Current 'meta' is having tall defenders who can defend far post crosses

    Yeah well I got him untradeable so selling is out of the question, haha. In my head the impact of a player is bigger in the centre of the field, hence why I am playing him CB.

    You are right about the meta! I have no doubts he will be good at LB but just worried I am not using him to his full potential at LB.

    Didn't like him at LB. He's a monster as CB better than varane & ramos.
    I swapped them IG with Headliner Hernandez whos a monster at lb.

    Thought about that aswell. In order to do that I have to use Oblak in goal. Is he any good?

    It is a defensive LB, if you use a formation that doesn’t rely on your fullbacks to go forward and help the attack, Maldini is a perfect LB.
