Since nobody really cares about him and I'm sick of continuously posting I'm gonna merge my former posts:

Roy wrote:I'm amazed by him, he's currently by far my favorite Ajax player and he's impressed me far more than Schöne and basically anyone else from Ajax. He seems to be perfectly aware what his shortcomings are now that he's playing this new DMF/CMF hybrid. It's a bit hard to pinpoint him to a certain position as he generally seems to be a DMF with a more balanced role than most (or rather, a CMF/AMF hybrid playing DMF) and he doesn't seem to be all-out defending as much as Zimling is or Poulsen was. But I'll come out right now and say he's more useful than both could ever wish to be. This little guy here, he's one of the most important players Ajax have right now, he's not anything special in terms of raw defending, but his responsiveness and determination to give his all everytime he has a chance to intercept or dispossess helps the team a shitton. His movement is fucking crazily good, he's almost always in the right place at the right time, much like Blind, but less refined and much more raw and abrasive. He's all over the midfield, he's a complete boss and he can neutralize attacks all by himself, and that's saying something coming from a player who used to be a fairly attack-minded AMF/CMF hybrid basically half a year ago.
He's obviously limited, he's a shit shooter, his passing is retarded and he doesn't really seem to know how to create danger, but he's an emperor on the midfield. He's in complete control of the game, not through awesome tackling or endless stamina, but he's ALWAYS there when you need him, his DEF is only 65, but I feel he's been Ajax's most successful tackler by quite a margin lately, his tackling isn't very impressive, but he's a complete beast coming into challenges, and he doesn't seem to be halted even a bit by his lack of body strength or pure tackling skills. To reflect all this, I've raised his RES (could possibly be even higher), raised his MENT, lowered his AGG, and I wanna have his position changed to DMF, he's not a CMF like Klaassen or whatever, he's much more into balancing the play rather than focusing on attacking like most Ajax CMF's do. His general playing style is that of a DMF, but his skillset seems to be more fitted for a CMF, so I want the mods to discuss this.
I want to increase his DEF now. He's still not on general DMF levels of tackling but he's edging really close. Yes 75% of his success rates come from his RES and aggression, but his actual tackling has improved far more than I originally thought. At the moment he's probably ATT 72
EDIT. Oh and he should be DMF.
I've also reverted his height and weight back to what they really are cause there's no way in hell he's 1.72m or 68kg. Believe me, the guy has basically the same build as me and I am 1.96m and I weigh 72kg. There's no way he's only 4kg's lighter than me, no way at all. And he's tiny, he's either this or perhaps a couple of cm's taller, but there's no way he's even close to 1.72m.
