McKennie reviews?

I’m tempted to do his SBC, to play him as CDM but I would like some reviews before to complete him.
How is his defensive AI? How does he turn?

Thanks in advance

    I'm gonna do a review on him soon but so far he's been really good. He's not the most agile or a pure CDM though

    Wonder if artist would help him.

    Not massively agile as mentioned running him on Engine currently, very good overall though.

    Very pleasant surprise. Dominates the midfield and makes good runs.

    At CB is also very good.

    He is more agile than expected. With Tonali he makes a good pair.

    Just played against him, my god his pace is annoying. I'm contemplating getting him now even though he doesn't fit in my team.

    That’s not a bad shout tbh could move Florenzi into midfield but I’m hoping the Pavard is good so I can have this for now.

    Great for me. Balanced CM next to stay back Tonali in a 442. Currently using engine.

    Gets forward & has the stats to finish. Runs back to help without you having to drag him back yourself.

    With engine moves sufficiently, better than Gerrard anyway who’s position he’s took 😂

    He's definitely good for the price, although I would say I had higher expectations for him given the stats, he is solid all round but doesn't feel special like a Renato or Gullit (who's much more expensive of course). Well worth the coins if you can fit him into the team but won't be easy unless you have mostly Serie A squad.

    Have him paired with prime Matthaus and he's not far off that level great value for coins .

    Very good, absolutely everywhere. Have him as a box to box CDM next to Tonali, and they just seem to work so well. Well worth it

    I find artist chem style a lie as my Drogba turns better on engine despite having lower agility

    I've used him more defensively than everyone else it appears. Used him as a stay back CDM beside Prime Matthaus and he really surprised me. Very good defensively and has that 'glue' where he tackles people and comes away with the ball. So many times he seemed to get his leg around the defender and fish the ball out rather than it bouncing to another attacker

    Honestly, this Zakaria - McKennie midfield has been the best I've used all season

    If I'd known he'd be at Juve, I'd have 100% done Zakaria

    Tbh, I could imagine people would be mad if they ran a bundesliga and it was just changed

    zak’s was an objective card if i remember correctly. and it was while he was in germany still so you probably wouldn’t have done him anyway :D

    You're right! And that's why I didn't do him. 😂
