Rondon’s career history until 2016

Rondon is a Jack-of-all-trades striker, he has the pace, strength and poise to get past any defender and the finishing to beat any ‘keeper. He has a few weak attributes and although he is not as good as the likes of Niang, Fierro and co. Rondon canmake an instant impact and with the right training can become a revelation at any club. His scoring record is phenomenal, 73 goals in 139 games at club level and a staggering 42 goals in 43 games for Venezuela during five seasons. He is definately worth the modest sum of £10.5 million

Best buy rating: 8/10

    A weakness of him is the inability to make driblings in sides to past his opponent (the defender) .I tried that player at 2011 and now in 2012 too and same thing,but sometimes his powerfull shoot is all what you need.

    Tottenham always seem to buy him for some reason. I have seem quite a few saves with Randon having been bought by spuds.

    Jonathan: He is a very good buy, his record is great
    Rodrigo: if you train him you can improve his dribbling, so thats not an issue
    Neutronstar44:I agree, they always buy him. This happens with a lot of players

    can Rondon fit into a 1 touch, 4-3-3 tiki taka tactic?

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton August 16, 2012

      If you train him from the star you could, as his dribbling and passing aren’t great. But if you are thinking of buying him a few seasons in I would look for other options.

      He could do better but is much tougher to sign.
