Destro’s profile in 2011 (after starting new game, patch 12.2)

Destro’s scouting report from Friio of Man Utd

Destro’s profile aged 29 in 2020

Destro’s career history until 2020

Mattia Destro kind of reminds me of Francesco Totti, but just a little quicker and not so lackadaisical.His amazing agility enable him to get past any defence ,and, being Italian, he will very rarely miss because, as we all know, Italians tend to be great finishers and very composed ( barring a certain Mario of course) and Destro is no different. If you like to play direct football or the beautiful game, I doubt you will find many more versatile front men. Together with the fact that this young Italian star is likely to be available for a stunning price, It is well worth waiting to 2012 to have him in your team. A player I really like, and i’m sure you will too if you get him. I would really urge you to do so !

Best buy rating: 9/10

    not bad at all but in teams that you have fierro sanogo and other striker he doesn´t have place for sure.But he is worth buying and his attrributes are deadly , the only thing in comparecy to other strikers that i think could be better due to is attributes are the goals scored.

    And one question could you post update the profile of j.ayew with the new patch? because we know that he is very good but not at is full potential

      There are better strikers out there but not many. His goals per game ratio above is extraordinary.

      The J.Ayew profile wasn’t done by me, so there i’m unsure on that.

        Yes it means lazy/idle

  • comment avatar Darren Smith August 16, 2012

    He’s a very good player Ryan. Certainly similar to Totti and his all round skills would leave him open to many different roles.

  • comment avatar Alexander Ceol August 16, 2012

    in my save he is 34, has made 74 caps and 51 goals for Italy, and plays for juventus where he is captain and pure awesome, 27 goals last season etc.

    Good striker and i also suggest you to check out and make a profile on kleber who has a great finishing and kelvin who has great technique and dribble.Also for defence check out douglas,he is a beast in defence!

  • comment avatar dim August 20, 2012

    what about these players i mentioned in my previous comment do you think that they are good enough to be profiled?

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly August 21, 2012

      I will be profiling Kleber soon but as for Kelvin i’m unsure on him.

  • comment avatar Casey mc August 21, 2012
