    What is his best position/style of play? Any tips on what Player Instructions I should set? I have recently signed him for Newcastle and he rarely averages more the 7 playing either ML or AMC.

      Well I haven’t signed him so I can’t really say. I always use a 4-5-1 with flat three in the middle so I’d play him in the middle as an advanced playmaker.

    I would use in AMC, as either an Advanced Playmaker(A), or even a Trequartista with a little boost in his Finishing.

      Yeah sounds like the right role for him, I personally don’t use an AMC so would end up using advanced playmaker with attack duty from CM.

    I am currently playin my third game with PSV eindhoven trying to win the champions league, cause one of my friends managed to do so with Ajax Amsterdam. However… Wijnaldum plays best as a winger cause his finishing stats are just far to low to play him as trequrtista. as winger he is amazing creating goals from a cross due his dribbling skills
