Mario Pugliese career history until 2021
This FM 2014 player profile of Mario Pugliese shows a dirt cheap central midfielder with great physical attributes and incredible potential. During our test save the Italian wonderkid developed two fold, I seriously had to double take and make sure it was the same player. His technical attributes go through the roof, Pugliese can not only control the ball and make his own chances, but he can pick a pass better than most. I think the role of box to box midfielder would suit best, on top of those physical stats long shots and work rate seem to develop well which can be key.
It can be tough to develop wonderkids like this due to the struggle of offering quality first team Football without sacrificing results, but there seems to be many, many gamers who have done this with relative ease. For £625K Pugliese is worth the risk.
