This FM 2012 player profile of Alex Teixeira shows the Brazilians talent but not in full. Teixeira could play attacking midfield, central midfield or on either wing. I personally think he would suit a box to box role or advanced playmaker role from the middle but using Teixeira from the wings as an inside forward could also prove deadly. The wonderkid hasn’t grown to his full potential in the screenshot above due to the level football played with Sao Paulo, but I think this just shows how strong he could be. Work on the Brazilians shooting and with a little luck you have a must buy especially at £4.2 million.

Best buy rating: 8/10

I’m from Ukraine, so I’ve seen his play for Shakhtar many times. I must admit the guy has talent and big potential, so he’s quite promising wonderkind. Probably he’ll be more effective in Spanish Primera than in English Premier League due to his low tackling and jumping, I suppose.

It´s a shame what happens to him at your save Darren, I’m sure that going to Sao Paulo really don’t help Alex reach his potential.

thanks for his profile,he’s one of my favorite players in fm2012.I usually play him as an AMC but playing him as winger isn’t a bad idea at all…but something bugs me and that’s that several of his attributes drop about three months in the game,but they get back up by the end of the year.I don’t know why this happen but I’m sure that it isn’t due to training,injury or lack in match experience…btw,you can get him for £4.5 mill if you wait until the end of July,and his wage demands also drop to about £1.2mill per year

Shaktar have a lot of talent in their ranks. Stepanenko, Mkhitaryan, Teixeira, Willian, Douglas Costa and Alan Patrick are talented enough to make it in Europe’s big leagues. Shame that most of them tend to make silly moves.

Yes, Shakhtar has a good team all around. I think I’ll start a save with them.

By the way, Darren, how does Lucas Ocampos turn out? Any good or will we have to wait until the next game comes out? Also, Serge Aurier, he was good in FM11. Does he get any good?

I see that Shaktar love buying brazilians players lol. I have seen Alex Teixeira playing in the brazilian team Vasco and indeed he has lot of potential, i want to buy him for my Newcastle save but Newcastle is not of the richest teams in England lol, i have won the PL and the board just gave me 15 million euros for transfers that i spent in another players. And one more thing, i wanna thanks Shaktar for allowing Jadson to come for São Paulo (the team that i support) with Luis Fabiano and Lucas São Paulo will have the… Read more »

I’m sure that if there wasn’t a restriction for Ukrainian Premier League teams to have at least 5 ukrainian players in first 11, then Shakhtar bought even more brazilian players :) That’s the policy of this club.
