Taras Stepanenko’s career history until 2019

This FM 2012 player profile of Taras Stepanenko shows a solid ball winning midfielder. This 21 year old is strong with great physical skills and could stop most players in their tracks. Best used just in front of your defence, you could also retrain Stepanenko as a central midfielder with ease. £3.7 million isn’t bad for a true leader and consistent top flight performer.

Best buy rating: 7.5/10

        Sorry mate I couldn’t find his profile in my future save and without that the profile is half done.

    11 determination is the only weakness

    that wastes 19 influence away as captain needs both high inf and det

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 21, 2011

      I wouldn’t say the determination throws his credits as a captain away, but it does make that impressive 19 for influence much less effective yes.
