currently have him and zouma as my centerbacks at arsenal ^^

Tijmen Stronks

On the first sight he looks like the biggest talent on DC, but when you look at his concentration, decisions and positioning, he”l cost you a few goals (I know it, I played with him with my ManUtd save). He makes a lot of mistakes. IMO Phil Jones, Varane and Zouma are bigger talents.


he can’t make lot of mistakes ‘coz of his determination which is insane


In FM 2012 I signed him for Man City and he was incredible, made lots of key tackles, headers,and interceptions! Haven’t finished the season but he got 3 MoM which is amazing for a CB and a few goals. He seems to attempt lots of tackle because of his aggresion but always seems to win every tackle because of his insane tackling attribute. So far he hasn’t make any stupid mistake so ignore the guy above, he’s the best CB talent in the game and a must buy!!


Hey Darren,

Only question I have regarding him is how do you go about tempering his aggression? He plays alongside Jones for my United team, amazing combination, only issue is he consistently gets yellow cards and then spends the rest of the game “seeming aggressive”.

I have brought oppossition instructions from Hard tackling to normal to prevent the straight reds, and periodically tell him to calm down in half time team talks, any other tips?

Cheers Timid


What role do you use him?


can you post the profile of ingo martinez and raphael varane


Would It Be Better To Play Him In The Back 3 Consisting Of Neven Subotic , Mats Hummels , And Him


Looks Like I’ll Be Trying A Back 3 Save With A EPL Club Cause Good Young Defenders Require Work Permit And They All Failed . Gino Peruzzi And Romario All Failed Work Permit , Thats Why Its Hard To Build A Long Term Back 4 In EPL


He’s brilliant, and even better on my save. Still playing for Schalke, 22 and got better attributes already. I honestly dont know how a 22 year old can have 20 marking and tackling


He is great but I think Varane develops to be a much better centre back, he is the rock of my defence for my tottenham squad.


could he work as a defensive midfielder or is he too weak on passing/technique?

Stelios Greco

IMO, having seen him play a lot (as I’m Greek as well) I have to say that IRL he is light years ahead of Varane who has never even spent a season in the top fligh of French football. That’s why Real Madrid were interested in signing him this summer along with Zenit, but where put off by his price tag. Anyway, “managerially” speaking, his consistency is astonishing. In my save, he plays for City with An avg rtg of 7,50+!

Peter Strauch

I can vouch for this. In my Arsenal save, he’s absolutely insane. He’s averaging above a 7.90 and I’m in March of the 1st season


He’s just scary, hope he’ll sign for my Totteham!


I love how fearless he is! When I saw him playing in EC ’12 for Greece, I fell in love with him straight away and searched for him in FM as the first player.. AND MY!; Did he have attributes!!


You guys talking about how awesome is him with 3 MOM or 7,9 rating. In 2013-2014 Ryan Shawcross made 35 appeareances, with 13 MOM and 8,16 rating…No words, really.

Panos Otto

Just the best dc in game. i always take him and we age together in the clubs taking champions leagues.One word to describe him is beast , although he has low concentration he can score easily in finals . Mistakes in cup games << MoM in Finals


He’s fantastic!!!I wonder where he’ll end up this summer.
He should be in the premiership that’s for sure!


Mind doing a profile on Mats Hummels?


Ha! Just bought him from Shalke to my Villarreal team for 6!! million in 2016. Can’t wait to see how he’ll do in Primera.

Fábio Reis

He’s surely a great player, but he’s mental attributes aren’t good at all, composure and concentration mostly. For me the best 2 CB in game are Zouma and Varane. Zouma is simply amazing, on my save, in the 1st and 2nd season, the average was on 7.50+, 3rd season – 8.01 and on the begining of 4rt season, in 7 games he has 9 goals, 2 assists, 5MoM and 9.02 average o.O
