    He makes me laugh when players try to tackle him and fall over. But (honest review) he's pretty slow in his skills and (not to kill the hype) not thaaaaat amazing (hides).

    He’s not neymar. But the feeling of destroying meta teams with your favorite player, destroying them with zlatan-like goals, i am hooked again.

    Idk what you guys are talking about. I’ve used almost every top tier 5* skillers bar R94 and Prime R9. And this Ibra is up there with the best when it comes down to skilling speed.

    His skill moves are executed extremely fast. He doesn’t have the acceleration to easily break away from defenders like R10 or Cruyff though. His strength makes up for that.

    I’m with you on this one. NIF Zlatan was noticeably clumsy and slow in skill moves, but FB Zlatan does skill moves rapidly and smoothly. As you mentioned, he doesn’t fly away from defenders like high acceleration shorter players, but he still destroys opponents because he creates enough separation and has enough strength to wreak havoc

    I am still quite shocked we have a player of such obvious quality this early in the game for less than 200k...the guy is absolute class

    That's his record for me so far, he would have a lot more but my goals are normally spread out quite a lot with other players as you might be able to tell by those 44 assists.

    I’ve played 5 rivals games today, won them all, Zlatan has scored 7, now 25 played 31 scored after using him during WL. Promoted to div 4.

    you don't promote Zlatan. Zlatan promotes YOU

    Been there once before, lost every game til I got relegated again😂. Let’s see how I do now.

    Happened again, lost every game until I got relegated. Zlatan did keep a goal a game record while there. It was like a switch got flicked moving from div 5 to 4. Every shot is a timed finesse into the top corner. Every keeper is moved. Pressure is constant. Every mistake is punished. I think div 5 is my level.

    Yikes, maybe I don’t want promotion out of D5 then lol

    Div 4 is a nightmare as it's the introduction to the world of "meta".

    Really enjoyed Div 5 as it's a great way to test out your tactics and team etc. I tend to relegate myself back into Div 5 and maintain enough of a gap that if I feel I want to get promoted I can do it before rewards.

    Tend to stay in Div 5 over the weekend until Tuesday, then try and work my way back into Div 4. You actually get to breathe in most games in lower divisions, less try hards and people actually are willing to use skill moves or even settle for a draw. It feels like a lot of the people you play against aren't sweating it out.

    Edit: Current Ibra stats

    Remove about 13 goals from SB as I needed the swap card for Da Costa. He is the best striker I've used so far.

    Just ball roll to the right and press R3. By pressing R3 the player will automatically flick the ball to the opposite direction.

    Just Ibra and Josef up top in 4411.

    The rest is a full Serie A squad as I was using him in my fun squad.

    Nothing too spectacular about this goal but it showcases his ability to perfectly execute skill moves and his *INSANE* finishing. It almost looks like those typical driven shots from 18 <3

    Guys from which club is the most memorable for you during zlatan’s career? Is it milan? Psg? Ajax?

    There’s a huge sale right now and i am planning to buy 2 or 3 throwback kits with zlatan’s name on it.

    Psg is not an option because i already have at least 10 psg kits with ibra’s name on those lol.

    United imo. He was at his downfall of his career and still managed to show his class. Imagine him at his peak playing in the EPL !

    Nope. He just doesn't. Dude has a lot of good things going for him but he doesn't execute skill moves as fast as some others.

    PSG seemed like the team that he was most at home at...like he wasn't particularly "attached" to a team until then

    Idk man. He feels rapid when skilling.

    Ronaldinho > Zlatan = Cruyff > Neymar.

    Just okay for me so far. Not as good as I expected. He was my most anticipated card of the year ever since I heard about flashbacks and he hasn't quite lived up to my hopes. Taking a lot of heavy touches and just feels a bit sluggish in general. Feels slower than Pogba for me even though his stats are better on paper.

    His speed of executing skills is nowhere near the fastest in the game. I'm running Prime Okocha in the same team as him and Jay-Jay is much, much quicker with the ball.

    I'm still glad I did him though. Truth be told, I would've paid 600-800k for this card, so I'm really glad EA did us a solid and made him available for so cheap.
