FM 2011 player profile – Abel Hernandez
written by Excessive
Club: Palermo (Italy)
Price tag: £19.25M (Patch 11.3)
Even for a hefty £19M, he looks to be quite a prospect. Abel is a very good player at the tender age of 19, and his stats show that. There isn’t an area on there you can fault him and looks to me that he fits the mould of a ‘Complete Forward’ perfectly. The scouts report below is from Arsenal’s Cagigao and shows what Hernandez could become:
Here, Cagigao compares him to world class Arsenal striker Robin van Persie. Currently, he is a two and a half star player which isn’t a bad starting point especially as he is predicted to play at a similar level to RVP! I can honestly see him bettering that with the stats that he has at the moment and if trained/played correctly, he can turn into a formidable striker. Again, he has highlighted that Abel has no real weaknesses which again proves to me that he is more suited to the ‘Complete Forward’ role.
Lucky enough I was able to get this off another Football Manager website as he didn’t develop at all in my game! Anyway as you can see he has developed into a very good player, with brilliant finishing/technical attributes. Currently at Manchester United in this save, it looks like he as reached the pinnacle of his potential and he will make a brilliant striker for any top club. The only troubles I have with him are that he costs a tone of money at the start of the game which may but some people off, and that he rarely reaches his potential. If you develop him well though, he will turn out into an excellent striker.
My Best Buy Rating: 7.5/10
