Toni Kroos’ career history until the year 2019

This FM 2012 player profile of Toni Kroos shows a true playmaker and master of the ball. The 21 year olds distribution is second to none and this is demonstrated in his future profile. 20 for passing, 19 crossing, 17 technique, 17 creativity and 16 long shots show how well Kroos can control the ball. I guess my only concern would be his general physical attributes but with some individual training these can be taken care of. Kroos is one of the best playmakers in FM 2012 but if my two save bidding is anything to go by he is impossible to buy within the first few months of a new game. I gave in bidding at around £150 million. If you can get him for less than £30 million then this kid is worth a bid though and I have rated him based more on ability than availability though the ludicrous asking price has brought Kroos to an 8 as opposed to 9 out of 10.

Best buy rating: 8/10

    Will he be any good in the cm support role in the arsenal 4-5-1 formation? Great list darren

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 6, 2012

      Thanks Matt, I think he could certainly hold his own in that role but it wouldn’t get the best from him…for that I’d say he needs to be advanced playmaker with attack duty.

        Is there anyone you’d reccomend for that role to slot into a top team?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith February 6, 2012

          No matter who you get don’t expect big ratings as that role is more about the link up play and dirty work but Badelj would be a good one.

            Hi guys. Excellent work. I haven’t ever bought Kros, but I’m really thinking of buying Thomas Muller. I never really found a decent profile of his in the web, concerning his development, or where does he play best (AMC or AMR and on what duties). Do you guys have any idea about this player?

  • comment avatar matt February 16, 2012

    I’d say that muller is let down by his technique really, probably better players you can get for both of those positions for a similar or even cheaper price, hamsik would be quality for that amc role muller plays because of his finishing.. Thinking about using kroos as a deep lying playmaker? Good idea or better players for that role?

      I agree, I like his brain for the game and physical stats but the technique just isn’t good enough. I reckon Kroos would work well as DLP yeah, the likes of Poli and Badelj should do OK too.

    Toni Kroos is absolutely amazing as a DLP. He’s currently 26 years old on my Bayern team and his value has skyrocketed to 33 million pounds. His stats are even better than those in your Year 2019 screenshot – with 20 first touch, 17 free kick etc. He’s averaging 7.98 in my current season, with 17 assists in 17 games. He really is a true playmaker :)

      That certainly sounds like a good record.
