Worth it?

This is a very, very good card.

87 pace, made up of 85 acceleration and 88 sprint speed (EIGHTY EIGHT!) is just ridiculous for a defender in all honesty. His defending stats are very good too. 91 OVR consisting of 94 sliding tackle, 92 standing tackle and 92 defensive awareness!

High defensive workrates and low attacking workrates is perfect and throw in that 5* weak foot and you have what looks to be one of the very best centre backs in FIFA 20.

His nationality isn’t great if you're looking to build him into a hybrid side but, if you’ve got a Serie A side, or maybe a couple of Icons who can boost your chemistry, then you really should go out and get this card in your team!
