Christian Benitez’s career history until 2015

You may remember Benitez from his brief spell with Birmingham. The FM 2012 powerhouse forward can score a lot of goals in any country and with any team. His finishing, quickness and ball control are deadly which make him an ideal buy for any club outside of the top four. Your only stumbling block may be the £11 million price tag, but you can avoid this by waiting a season for him to be available at half the price.

Best buy rating: 7/10

    Got Benitez for Stuttgart in 2012/13 he has scored 20 in 20 so far, wether its because he’s good or the fact my midfield is Willian, Marin, costa, Allen and rolfes remains to be seen

      Probably a mixture of the two…doesn’t matter how good the passes are if you can’t finish.

    Used to be good on FM 2011 as well.

      I think he was even better in FM11.
