Unfortunately this guy has been THE biggest loser of the appointment of Ancelloti. He’s shoehorned into playing out wide as a SMF, where he’s definitely not athletic enough to succeed, or as a CMF, where his defensive inadequacies are exposed and he’s been regressing. Physically, he’s been going south for the past year or so and struggling to stay in the game all game. The biggest change is that he is shying away from the ball more than ever and just getting 2-3 chances a game, often off free kicks, and little more. His passing isn’t as incisive and accuracy has been a knock off his old levels for long passing, although the speed is still fantastic. He hits the piss out of the ball.
Here are my suggested changes:
Attack: 79 - might be a candidate for 78 some day, but slow steps are better
Attack Awareness: 3
