Yassine Benzia’s career history until 2019

This FM 2013 player profile of Yassine Benzia feels similar to when we discovered Niang last year and Sanogo many years back. Yes, Benzia is that good, his future profile above doesn’t do him justice, but under human guidance this kid will grow way beyond what you see. And yet he still managed an impressive goal to game ratio during my save in France. Very cheap at £6.5 million and certainly warrants my 10/10 rating.

Best buy rating: 10/10

    Holy shit you’re fast! Have you accually played FM or did you only make guides?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 20, 2012

      Haha, Since Thursday evening I have just been researching and writing so no I haven’t managed any game time yet…but hoping for some tonight.

    What about Melgarejo from Benfica?Is he any good? I really have high hopes for this player in particular, especially since Benfica coach start adapting him into DL and he is developing well. Who nows, maybe he is the next Coentrão|

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 20, 2012

      He isn’t visible unless you have the Portuguese leagues loaded as playable which we don’t.

      • comment avatar Fábio Morgado October 20, 2012

        Thanks anyway?

        What about gylfi sigurdsson?he was pure magic in FM 2012?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith October 20, 2012

          I’d say he’s even better this year, worse physically but better technically. We won’t profile him yet though as the asking price would be too high.

          • comment avatar Fábio Morgado October 20, 2012

            Such a relief to hear that!I would be devastated if SI didn´t profile him to his justice. Too bad he hasn´t prove himself in Tottenham

          • comment avatar Darren Smith October 20, 2012

            SI have him spot on. Gylfi struggles in the EPL because it is such a high tempo and so physical which he doesn’t seem to have adapted too on a regular basis. Hence SI’s evaluation of his physical stats.

    Son Heung-Min from HSV is magnificent.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 22, 2012

      I might be mistaken but I think one of the lads is going to profile him.

  • comment avatar Luís October 25, 2012

    Profile says “Yassire” not Yassine :) looks outstanding as a player !

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2012

      Thanks for the heads up, all sorted now.

  • comment avatar Streeter October 25, 2012

    Good job bro.I always read your blog for best tactics and players when i have time to play manager.It`s been a year since i found you and i still think you`re one of the best.Best regards from Romania :)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2012

      Thanks a lot, hope I can continue to write useful posts.

  • comment avatar Streeter October 25, 2012

    Darren can you help me?I`m using 12.0.4 patch and I always got error when I compare two players?What should I do?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2012

      Sorry I can’t help you with that, you’ll have to try the SI forum.

  • comment avatar Alexander Tommos November 22, 2012

    played him from the first season at my Arsenal, and he is already better than the above profile at age 20, him and Ademilson destroys everything! last season Benzia scored 41 league goals

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 22, 2012

      Good to know, I’d certainly expect human management to see him better, of he’s a lot better in your game I’d love screenshots.

      • comment avatar Alexander Tommos November 22, 2012

        Well he is only 20 right now, but I can come back when he is the same age unless you want them now.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith November 22, 2012

          I’d say maybe wait a few more seasons until there’s a real noticeable difference.

          • comment avatar Alexander Tommos November 22, 2012

            Will do, btw, I couldnt hold on to both Benzia and Ademilson this season as my economy wasnt the greatest and the bids where good, so I let Ademilson go to Barcelona for around 35 million where he started by doing 7 goals in 3 games but is now injured :(

          • comment avatar Darren Smith November 22, 2012

            Thats a shame, I always rotate two strikers alone, at the moment Ademilson plays in Europe and domestic cups leaving Abel Hernandez to manage the league.

    • comment avatar Nkosinho April 2, 2013

      Speak for yoself bro..i sold 3 players in Cardiff city.to get Benzia..he is the complete package,dribbling,speed,finshing..i buy him everytime i change clubs

  • comment avatar Nufcer January 1, 2013

    Just want to give everyone a heads up on this player, I got him cheaply in the summer of 2013 for 5M pounds for those who want to save som cash!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 1, 2013

      Thanks for the heads up, I hope his price crashes like that often as it didn’t happen in my save.

  • comment avatar Siegrain January 8, 2013

    Who’s the better player as a striker in a 4-2-3-1 : Ademilson or Benzia?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 9, 2013

      I don’t know you’d have to test.

    • comment avatar Nkosinho April 2, 2013

      Benzia period..he has skills that create chances

  • comment avatar visitor January 9, 2013

    If I get him on Jan transfer or 2nd season. Is his price will lower ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 9, 2013

      I couldn’t answer that as every game develops differently.

  • comment avatar Thomas Anderson January 18, 2013

    So I just started a new save with QPR and finished 6th in my first season! Starting the second season off strongly, Lyon, who lie 19th in the league, sack their manager and approach me. Even though my QPR team was obviously a lot better I relished the challenge to restore Lyon to their former glories.

    Fast forward to the end of the season and I managed to finish 4th in Ligue 1, just a couple of point from CL qualification.

    This kid was a beast for me, played him as my second choice striker behind Lisandro Lopez and he got 12 goals and 3 assists in around 20 appearances. Quite beastly for a young spud like him. Seeing this makes me want to develop him even more! He’s now rated a full FIVE STAR by my staff… Lisandro’s getting old so he should be the ideal replacement for him.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 18, 2013

      Thats certainly a good record, he seems to be one of the top young talents this year.

  • comment avatar Steven February 7, 2013

    Which Striker should i buy?

    Yassine Benzia
    Facundo Ferreyra
    Rodrgio
    Son Heung-Min
    Adam Campell

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 7, 2013

      Depends on what you want, I like Benzia and Rodrigo though.

  • comment avatar toshiba August 5, 2013

    Which role should i use benzia? I bought him from to my FC Porto save and just haven’t developed the way i expected. I’ve used him as a deep lying forward because because of the reports, but he just disappoints every time.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 5, 2013

      I think it could be more of a problem with that role working within your tactic than the player himself, unless you’ve used other players there to great success of course. Alternatively I think poacher may suit him.

      • comment avatar toshiba August 7, 2013

        Well i use the 4-2-3-1 formation with to central midfielders. I play controlling football with direct passing system.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith August 7, 2013

          TBH I have never been a fan of that formation but then again there are lots who make it work so maybe you struggle with it, I don’t know.

  • comment avatar Luke Packer August 15, 2013

    I bought him for my Monaco save in second season and he has led ligue 1 in goals for probably 3 seasons now, so he is pretty amazing.

  • comment avatar Beast September 20, 2013

    Yassine is developing well on my save he is 3 seasons in and look at him
