How's prime Matthaus?

Anyone use him? If so, CM or CDM? Packed him in the prime pack and see he's a million coin player. Does he have that icon trait of playing better than his stats?

    He belongs to the group of icons that play way better than the stats in game.

    I have a 13 million starting 11, 3 million bench, plus many TOTS cards that discarded in the club, however, I'm still playing Mid Matthaus at 7 chem as CB. He is a pure god at defending. The jockey and movement feel like 95+ agility and balance. The tackle feels like Kante. The 75 strength is absolutely fake as he can even push away 90+ strength TOTS strikers.

    The prime version is only going to be better compared to the mid version I'm using. You are really lucky bro.

    Bit heavy but he still does the job. Plays above his stats and bullies midfielders.

    Depends where you aim to finish in WL I guess. For us gold players hes great.

    I did one, got zambrota. Maybe good 3 months ago but he is worse than TAA in all but volleys and +3 strength... so don't think I'll even use him. Maybe a sub

    There's maybe 8 or 9 primes tops of have in my team, Matthaus is one I would give a run out at least. Not going to do another

    First few games and this feels pretty spot on. What I really like so far is he's very involved in the game and is a super defender. Prefer him to 96 Modric so far!

    Thanks for all the information! Seems quite clunky but a solid cdm that is very involved in the game!

    I've been using him and he's absolutely phenomenal. Better than Ndombele, Totssf Kimmich, Totssf Henderson and any other cdm I've used in game. He just intercepts everything and he's always in the right place. Won't be leaving my team for a long time!

    I pulled him from the sbc and he's great. I was worried he would feel lacking as I've used his PIM loads and there's barely any difference. He must be a nightmare to play against, you don't see him much which is really strange as well.

    He’s great without the ball. Interceptions, tackles, great runs, but when he gets the ball.... the problems start. for me Kimmich is better in ever way. It’s great you got a player that you enjoy though, he’s definitely a one of the better pulls
