He is deserving of his own thread. Absolutely unreal.
Passing has always been broken and frustrating this FIFA, so I was hesitant to purchase him, but he was decent in draft and his reviews on Futbin were glowing.
Having used RB Verratti and Barella, I knew I'd like him but I didnt expect him to be such an influence. Like Barella with the high/high, he is everywhere, dictating play. He isnt as good as Verratti as nipping in and stealing the ball as he doesn't have the strength/aggression, but he really intercepts a lot cleanly. He is DEFINITELY fast enough. He flies across the ground which helps with intercepting. With shadow, 92 accel, 92 pace, 98 interceptions, so hardly surprising.
His finishing in the box isnt great, but long shots are decent. People whack hunter on him, but he's probably better off having gladiator as that combines both shadow and hunters stats and drops the pace. Anyone who has used Barella and Verratti know that they're quick enough.
His dribbling is as expected. Turns on a sixpence. This helps both getting out of trouble and creating passing opportunities.
His passing genuinely has a wow factor. It shouldn't be surprising, but because previously I was let down by De Bruyne it has. Even when under pressure and you've got little options on, perhaps a single striker sandwiched between two centre backs, a through ball finds your striker. It really is eye of the needle stuff.
He plays in a diamond next to base Zidane, in front of Verratti and behind and mid Pele and is the most influential in terms of dictating play. Highly recommended.
