Since Vieira lesft, he has been moved back to mid, and has varied roles, but its mainly been DMF/ball winner, but he is such a smart player, he really can do anything on the pitch. This season - with Villa gone and no real solution made in transfer market in off season - NYCFC have been experimenting with Maxi Moralez at CF, and rotating players into differnt positions trying to find something that clicks, in this tinkering mess, Ring has played like some libero from years past, he is supposed to be a DMF along side Sands, but he goes maurading forward and is at times the most advanced player, already has 2 goals in 4 games this season;https://youtu.be/IZ6run7LUeQ?t=85https://youtu.be/06Syl9GRDH0?t=141
For me the set is still accurate overall, but just missing some stars like Tactical Dribble, Middle Shooting, Reaction, Sliding, Covering. Also add CB.
Mainly recognized as a top DMF of the league, but he has a much more rounded game, he is an all action player, gets into a little of everything on the pitch, really talented. Also is the leader of the team. I am a bit surprised that he did not stay in Europe, was in Bundesliga II, but I think he has the abilities to perform even in a better league...wiki quote "Ring's performances were marred by minor injuries and constant head coach changes, that hindered his progress. In January 2017 the economically ailing club decided to let him move on before his contract would have expired." hmm maybe at the time clubs were not willing to gamble on an injury prone player?
