Giuseppe Prestia’s career history until 2018

This FM 2012 player profile of Giuseppe Prestia shows the Italians potential. My initial concerns would be composure, strength and Pestia’s general mental attributes. But the screenshot from 2018 demonstrates how easily this wonderkid can brush past these weakness’ to become a world class centre back. Pestia can stop any player in his tracks, pass the ball reasonably well and enjoys some excellent physical stats. With the right training and management I believe this kid could grow into one of the best…so £1.3 million seems like an absolute bargain and brings my rating out at a generous 9/10. (This profile has been redone and rated due to new research.)

Best buy rating: 9/10

Hey Darren, Thanks for this website.

I’ve got a problem atm. I bought Prestia for my Juventus side but he can’t start because I’ve got Boccetti and Chileini as CB. I feel that his development is slowing. What should I do?

Send him on loan to another club to allow him some first team experience…..

I love Prestia. For the first 2 seasons I was worried he’ll be a flop. Had decent games but also made a lot of mistakes. Even with the best coaching and tutoring, his progress didn’t seem to be fast enough. Jusy before the end of my 2nd season though the kid changed. My assistant manager (17 in judging potential, 20 in judging ability) added 1 full star to his potential just like that because Prestia’s attributes seemed to skyrocket suddenly. He can play with his head, he can tackle and he can pass! If you wish, you could easily coach… Read more »

Darren, I play with Man. Utd. and I’m on my first season. I got 28milion euros to use. My strikers are Chicha and Berbatov, Rooney ocasionally playing. Wingers Nani and Young. Center midfielders Anderson/Carrick/Giggs. Centerbacks are Vidic and Rio, sometimes P Jones and Jonny Evans. Full backs are Evra and Rafael/Fábio. Just bought Prestia for a bargain in hopes of his potential. With my money, I was thinking of buying a playmaker like Ganso or Hazard, although Neymar, Gotze, Muniain, Hamsik and Pastore fill my eyes. My team is doing very well, with a current 12 games unbeaten, 11 victories… Read more »

I think Prestia may be a flop for me. I bought him second second for my United team. Now I’m in my fourth season and his stats have barely improved. I play him in about 20-25 games a season and his average ratings for the last two years have been 7.5+. He’s solid, but he just doesn’t improve. Hopefully he’ll make a significant jump here soon.

Darren, this player changes from game to game. And the changes aren’t subtle. I’ve started more than 20 games to see just how much the profiles vary and it’s just depressing. In one game he can have 3 aggressiveness, and in the next it jumps to 12. Teamwork and workrate are usually around 6-8, in my 20 starting games I’ve gotten just 5 where both of those values rose above 10, in 2 of them both of them were 14+ . Sometimes his technical stats such as crossing, first touch and passing are 9-13, which could suggest he could play… Read more »

These random changes of stats are more than likely because his stat in the editor is 0, which makes it random depending on how much Potential ability he has per file that you load.

Darren,
Are you familiar with Benedikt Howedes? I’d recommend him to anyone who wants a no nonsense center back who can also bang in 15-20 goals a season just from corners.Sick Sick defender.He’s bad-ass!

hey darren, im in my second season and its the january transfer window, i was concerned about prestias potential as i hadn’t played him yet and my scout only said his potential was 2 and a half star, therefore i started playing him and put him on the loan list, a number of clubs went for him but he refused because he said he was ‘ too good ‘ for loan. he’s not my favoured centre back so i’m not sure what to do, thanks

Player’s star rating ingame will drop if he doesn’t get enough minutes on the field. Give him time in those easy cup and league matches, pair him up with an otherwise strong defence (should have the fullback next to him and the other centreback near him to correct his mistakes). I’ve always signed this kid no matter who I play and gave him at least some games during the first season. In the second season I needen’t have worried about him at all, he held his own very well. He’s always been the best developping youngster in my team. Have… Read more »

thanks darren and heresy, with psg and the french ligue isn’t too challenging therefore im giving him a lot of game time and his potential has moved up to 3 star, one last question. Willian and hazard have been absolutely unbelievable for me, willian with 22 goals and 25 assists in 25, hazard 18 goals and 31 assists in 25, but pastore has got about a measly 6 goals and 7 assists in 25, should i stick with him? i have an unbelievable transfer budget and im thinking about gotze..

my biggest problem with this player is that he seems very injury prone and not from my training he got injure three times at internationals really disrupted his growth its come to a level that sorrensen in my save is outshining him that how bad it is to injury prone id say rate him an 8 while he does have amazing potential that trait will have you pulling out your hair though if eh gets over that i can see him being key with him and sorrenson dominating the middle and romario and didgne/ake(great player) owning the sides

I’ve had bids accepted for him for 3 seasons now but he’s just not interested in Southampton! I thought Europa league may of swayed him but No! Does Tobias Figueiredo turn into a good player in any of your saves? Just bought him on the cheap and going to try and train him up.

Hey darren i bought this kid for 2.6 mill and i have sent him out on loan but his attributes have not changed even when he is playing regualrly also what do you think ofmy team because i am struggling to score goals lately Luis Guhirleme Rafeal Musacchio Kjiar Jose Angel De Rossi Di Maria Lamela Pjanic Paloschi Nelson Oliveira Subs Viviano Davide Santon Capelli Bertolacci Drenthe Toivonen what forward do you think will suit the 442 diamond formation

Darren I started a brand new 12.2 patch save and Prestia has 9 pace to begin with? In the screen shot he says he starts with 12?

Joe
Guest

Also I offered £1.2 Million and they attempted to negotiate to £3.7?

Joe

I just wasn’t aware players stats such as pace could change so much.

I didn’t go through all of the comments, so sorry if somebody already asked this – I’d like to know how many games a year are needed for a young player like Prestia to ensure proper development? I would imagine the number needed would progressively increase with age (as he turns 18, 19, 20). I am at a mid-level club in much debt and am hoping to overcome the tiny transfer budget by utilising the top level training facilites to train (cheap) young talents…but if I can’t give them enough playing time, I don’t think buying them just to loan… Read more »

I’ve had two experience with Prestia. In my Napoli save (2016), Prestia wasn’t developing as much even though I’ve made attempts to give him 15-20 games a season. One thing to note thou, on that save, Prestia was pretty much injury prone from season 12-15 (He was scouted “injury prone” from the start). Spending at least 2 months each year on the injury table, tried giving him light training schedules but it wasn’t fruitful. However, it was completely different in my current liverpool save (season 2013). Similarly, I gave him at least 15 games each season. After 2 season, Prestia… Read more »

Thanks for the detailed reply. It seems Prestia, like some other wonderkids, has fluctuating personality-related points, which affects his injury proneness, consistency, quality of play in big games, etc. According to my scout he is not notably injury prone in my save, so hopefuly it turns out ok. I will try tutoring him with a player that has high professionalism & solid mental stats, although he could be one of those players that struggles to adopt a tutor’s stats / personality traits / preferred moves. Also, a follow up question: is there a big difference between giving a player playing… Read more »
