Well added to the DB and given him a full update. I will explain most of changes and what I could get from the images I could access which is basically all it's online on internet. I was excited about knowing him more cause I knew he was great but I can say I do love his style and I understood why he's regarded as one of best AMF's in Argentinian history.
I'll quote myself just to contradict some of my past statements cause watching him more I realized some other things about this guy.

This is absolutely true...he was able to make some nice movements on and off the ball. Also it's true he changed something when he turned old and in 80's, and for sure his best era was 73-74 in Huracán and mainly at NT. He was named as 3° best Southamerican player in 1974 behind Elias Figueroa and Chagas...that's really great considering Argentina's WC wasn't that good...he was the best player of the team for sure that cup. And yeah his left boot was just class, I'm impressed about his elegant but at the same time (yeah strange) fluid movements to avoid 2 or 3 players in tiny spaces, his DA was absolutely lovely to see and admirable his control of the ball. He was pure control cause he used to have some speed when he wants to but he never used it...football was slower and that was his benefit...his brain was over the 90% of the rest of players back then.. So he took advantage of it.
His attack should be really high, I'm not saying that as awesome as prime Riquelme, but at least middle's 80 to represent his incisiviness and fantastic decisions to pass through defenders.
I was wrong in here, I thought he was more adventorous but he wasn't...I wasn't impressed AT ALL by his SPA tbh, he was secure at his passing, good distributor but he has no pace at all in them and he didn't give so many assists throught his vision and passing. He was a master of LPA...probably his main quality, great vision over distances and to distribute the ball as well...the pace wasn't a factor either but he was in charge of any set pieces and he showed decent power. Attack and shoting are in those numbers to replicate how dangerous he used to be to score...not that great numbers but the guy has % of goals per match very impressive for the type of player he was.
Stamina/Mentality must have a massive decrease...was those type of players that doesn't need those high ratings at all...I see more accurate high greens in stamina and low 70's in mentality, less than nothing special was this guy.
I mantain this, he doesn't need more than that, it wasn't his role at all.
His speed stats must have a massive decrease too (TS/ACC/DS/RESP)...82 in RESP? wtf? This guy was very relaxed and didn't use it at all, doesn't need more than 77/78 to represent his style of classic no. 10.
Tricky one...his speed was decent when he wants to but 99% of time he just walked with the ball or in a min. speed...he was quite relaxed and as i said he used to think a lot on the ball (meanwhile he dribbled between players that's fantastic). I left his response/defence bit higher cause I noticed he was quite good at it, his tackling was something you wouldn't expect from him tbh and he was quite responsive to loose balls in the midfield and also in the box to score, I was wrong about that.
I have doubts about his agility also, he was able to make quick turns but he didn't use it at all, he was more elegant for what I could watch of him.
I have a headache rating this and I'm still not sure. His foot movements were absolutely fast to dribble and change directions quickly...but at the same time he's the relaxed elegant Zidane's style kind of player...tall and slow at his body movements...except his foot...that's just magic imho. So I left a decent number to replicate that but could be wrong.
TW is an issue, his understanding with his teammates was godly but his off-the ball movement didn't...not sure in 86 though...will be omnipresent and accurate in his passes as hell, plus a raise in ATT will be an explosive and dangerous combo.
Decent movement but at all that good...it was in old standards.
I didn't find his 1st touch that impressive tbh, only watched 2 taken downs in godly mode but that's all...for sure he was great at technical skills but I don't find him THAT good to have better numbers, i'd even take down a little bit more.
