I used his 10 game loan and enjoyed playing with him but would’ve like a longer loan. Anyone have any reviews before I take the plunge on him?

    55 games as a RCM in 4-1-2-1-2 narrow and he is great. The same level as 99 Modric who is my LCM. Also depending on your play style, you will barely notice his height as I replaced 89 Pogba with Matthaus and I don't see a problem.

    +1 from me too. Using him in the same position and he’s been great. Pops up with his fair share of screamers too

    Only thing I do not like is the commentstor does not speak his name. Maybe they will add it in, but I am sure 88 Matthaus has his name called out, but for some reason not the prime moments.

    In terms of gsmeplay he is one who varies a lot depending on formation etc. I find he great when using fast build up, always making great runs, and up with the play. ( 41212) 2. As LCM

    However when I play slow posession based game he is not such a factor (343)5 posession

    Defensively he is everywhere, good speed and solid

    Would love to be able to do him for me a perfect CM.

    His prime card last year was amazing, pace.

    But since I'm.on the PC his and is over 3million.

    Just not a chance sadly.

    Thanks for the feedback. I plan on using him in a 4411 at lcm. First couple games he didn’t have a hug presence but the last 6 or so he was immense. I’m hoping that continues

    His stats look insane... I want to complete him too... But will take quite some trading for him... Have 100k worth players and 600k coins... and 600k invested...

    Pim Zanetti if your thinking for CDM role better workrates similar stats... your basically paying a extra 1mill for shooting stats with Lothar if you never shoot with CDM or CM then not worth it, if you like them making late runs into box or Occasional pop a screamer then Lothar if up there with the best. (Yes iv tried both)

    Exactly this. As playmaker/cdm he is very strong. And when he get the ball for a long shot...

    I would advice agsinst using him as a CDM. His best qualities are his pace, runs and shooting

    I was the same, first few games I was really regretting doing the SBC as he was annonymous. But once you work him out, and stop trying too hard then he really comes into his own.

    He will be good in a 4411. I have him paired with Petit when I play that formation, although it not one of my favourites
