Yaya Sanogo starting attributes
If you are still in season one on patch 11.3, this is the profile Sanogo will greet you with. He looks good, but not fall off your chair incredible. For me the key attributes are pace, acceleration, finishing, composure and dribbling. That is what I look for in a striker and Sanogo ticks almost all the boxes. One key attribute to this wonderkids development is his strength, as Sanogo becomes an absolute beast! Below is how Arsenal’s Cagigao rates the French forward.
To be honest I disagree with the above report. Sanogo has the potential to be better than RVP and certainly should warrant a 4 star potential rating. What gives me the right to disagree with such an amazing scout? Take a look at the screenshot below, but take a deep breath first as your about to see Sanogo’s future.
Yaya Sanogo in 2017 with Newcastle
Amazing isn’t he? His finishing is 20 and this shows in game as Sanogo has managed more than a goal every game for me during the last two seasons. The above screenshot is taken from my Newcastle save and for those who wonder how his dribbling has improved so much…well I trained him in this area from day one. I recommend doing this because dribbling is the only attribute that could stop Sanogo been the best poacher on FM 2011. I bought the striker late during 2012 and had to fork out £13 million, but he’s now worth £29 million at the age of 24. AC Milan have been tabling offers alongside Barcelona in excess of £59 million but I’m holding out for more!!
Yaya Sanogo in real life (taken from Wikipedia)
Sanogo plays his football for Auxerre in France, while he’s not started many games Yaya is touted as a real prospect. Sanogo has featured for the French U16’s, U17’s and U19’s on numerous occasions scoring a goal every game for the U16’s. Despite his tall and lanky frame, Sanogo is respected for been both a deadly finisher and possessing great technical ability.
OK you must want Sanogo now? If not I have prepared a short video that would change anybodies mind. Click the link below to see Yaya Sanogo’s best goals while playing for me at Newcastle. I have prepared the goals in order of quality from 5th place to 1st and it includes a little song I think sums the wonderkid up.
My best buy rating – 11/10
