FM13 Wonderkids to watch – Adrian Ezequiel Cirigliano

FM 2013 wonderkids

written by Darren Smith

With FM13 just around the corner I thought we should start looking at possible talent for the new game. Every year unearths a player we have never heard of and so, so many hidden gems. Well this year I want to second guess Sports Interactive, creating some real life profiles of hotly tipped wonderkids SI surely can’t ignore. This will be a continuous series of profiles for FM13 wonderkids, I have five in mind so far but will not be taking any recommendations, its just  a small series of players to look out for come FM13’s release, hopefully this will help us all get excited about the new game.

Adrian Ezequiel Cirigliano

Club: River Plate

Position: MC/DMC

Age: 20

Nationality: Argentine

2011/12 league app: 27

Interested clubs: Manchester Utd, Manchester City

Compared too: Xavi and Mascherano

Video reel

Not only is Cirigliano an excellent distributor of the ball but he also knows how to tackle, hence the comparison to Xavi and Mascherano, two very different players. Manchester Utd scouts have been watching this wonderkid closely and their neighboring rivals, City, were reported as sizing up a bid this summer, though those reports were never confirmed by an actual offer. Cirigliano spent last season in great form for River Plate and if he can transform that into the Argentine top division then the big clubs are certain to come calling.

Cirigliano looks more than capable of sitting in that MC or DMC position, as either a ball winning midfielder or deep lying playmaker. I just hope Sports Interactive have recognized his talent, FM13 may have another bargain buy wonderkid from South America if so.

    I was wondering if there had been a mistake when I saw Xavi and Mascherano. Very good prospect. Looks like Scholesey if he traded in his goals for proper tackling :)

      Yes but almost all them are not visible unless you have the country loaded that they play in so the majority of gamers including myself won’t see them. I don’t load Belgium, holland nor Argentina. Besides this particular player will only ever have a maximum potential of 160 and sometimes only hits 130…that is nowhere near enough IMO.
