Kara’s profile aged 25 in the year 2015

Kara’s career history until 2015

Kara is an absolute bargain! He can be developed into a defensive midfielder which is what Besiktas have done in the screenshots above, but is equally as good in defence. I would recommend developing him as a central defender due to his height, heading and jumping ability. This guy is an ox and must be picked out for corners and any other set pieces. I think Kara would walk into any mid-table side and develop into a player worthy of first team football with a top four side also. Either way his price tag of just £975K is irresistible.

Best buy rating: 10/10

Well, what a talent, but i can’t reconise this bad stats! Heading, Tackling, speed and marking is over 18 on my CHelsea save, i trained him as a stopper, he have been the defender of the year 5 times in a row in africa and the best premier league deffender 1 time, 2. 3 times!


i cant find kara when i tried looking for him in the search… not sure why. Any suggestions?


bought kara for my napoli save. invested in several kids and with canavara as my DC didn’t really need him at the back so play him in DM. breaks everything up, nothing much gets through him and scores 1/3 games from my set pieces. all in his first season! great buy!




this guy is just the dogs baws!
i play him at DC as ball playing defender. bargin and first name on my teamsheet. (im malaga btw, just won spannish cup and sitting 3rd in league 5 behind Real Madrid, Barca running amok though)

Jorge Fernandes

I’am seriously thinking about add the norway league just to buy him for my napoli. I want a cheap defender, young and with good stats, he seems to be the one!


i take it you have to train him in the position because for me it says he can only play at DMC


seems hard to sign him for england clubs

i’ve tried 2 teams, and both teams can’t sign him.

Finally got hold of him after two seasons – work permit issues – on my Arsenal save. Played a little pre-season, did ok. Then played United, had injuries left, right and centre (midfield actually, true story!). As my only CMish option stuck him on for Ramsey (with Aaron’s pre-set instructions, didn’t even think…..) and he scored 5!!!! all from 30 yards plus. I’ve kept him in the middle with Hamsik (sorry Aaron/Jack!) as a box to box and he’s scored 11 in 7 games all from outside the area (including a screamer from just outside the centre circle. Came 1st,… Read more »

This might be a stupid question, but how tall is he in meters? Is 6″4 +- 1,90 meter?

The big problem for me, is that he’s already at Lille, who obviously won’t let go of him for at least less than, I would argue, 7M. :( I’m playing as 1860 Munchen and, after two months, is on track for promotion – even title-winner, but obviously we’re just going to get relegated again if we don’t invest for the future. I was keeping an eye open for him, but now my hopes are dashed. :( I would advise those of you who want him to move fast, because in almost every save I’ve done about 7 clubs start trying… Read more »

Do you ignore the star rating a little bit? his stats seem really well placed i.e tackling and heading etc. I guess i’m saying is a 3 star player with these stats better to have than a 3 1/5 or 4 star player whose stats may be more spread out?


that he will the next sandro at tottenham hotspur? there already had sandro for DMC

Kara was my 1st transfer on Benfica. I use him mostly as central defender but also as ball winning midfielder


The future screenshot does not do him justice he improves alot more then that

Joe Steele

I bought him with Chelsea and he needs a work permit. I bought him in June and it is now November and I still don’t have a work permit for him. How long is it before he does eventually get one.


Darren, if you were to choose a centre back pairing out of these players, Kara,Zouma or Rugani. Who would you pick ?


he always goes to beşiktaş omg :)
