kante plays bad

236 posts Sunday League Hero
I am playing 4-4-1-1

the middle is kante cm - hazard 93 cf - pogba cm

both kante and pogba are untrades. I've had pogba for months and he's amazing.
I packed kante in last week's rewards and he's been disappointing since. most games I sub kante at half time cause he's bad. I was playing before with fabinho nif (also untrade so I have him anyway) and he's mostly better.
Is it just me? I know ppl like Kante.

BTW kante is at cm with cdm on his card, I didn't change him to cm because he's on 10 chem anyway. does the position have any effect other than the chem before starting the game?

    You have to be careful with his passing but besides that he is a abosolute monster. I couldn’t see playing without him
  • Use Pogba for the main risky passes and stick an anchor chem style on Kante.

    I actually packed Kante last week in a 2 rare player pack and was thinking the same.

    After I put anchor on him it boosts his physical a bit which is noticeable.

    I've used mine for like 500 games

    But now I've removed him as not being able to make a simple pass as it's vexed me out and cost me games

    kante is amazing.

    Win the ball, pass it short. Keep it simple.

    I’ve avoided him because of his height, I don’t know if that’s an issue you are having? I tend to favour physical players. I’m the guy that played poulsen sif out on the wing since it came out until last week😂

    He's a liability, I swaped him with flashback Bradly who is a huge upgrade

    He gobbles everything up for me on the defensive end. If anyone is silly enough to try and go 1v1 on him it's a done deal. But yea, he's a liability on offense. I play 451 and 41212 narrow and he's in a key position to help get the ball forward and struggles with it. Def can't imagine the impact that a TOTY Kante or Matthaus would have on my team.

    Use Catalyst, makes him a passing machine as well as a defensive machine

    I felt the same with Kante , bought and sold him 3 times .

    He is good in moving ball forward with pace and decent ball control.
    But defensively he runs around a lot , Fabinho is better positioned and better at aggressive tackles
