This set is quite outdated. I didn't know him well before joining Atletico, but what he played for Atletico and Argentina, is completely different compared to what this set represents. First, i feel that his current role is more suitable for him, as i find his technique stats quite overrated. Okay, he's kinda decent on the ball, but he's DA, Ball control should be downgraded. If anyone who knows him better than me has some precise suggestions about these 2 stats, it would be nice to write it, but from like 10 matches, i didn't see his first touch and dribble acc on this level surely, he actually looks like he's alwasy on the verge of losing the ball when moving forward, and he's quite oftenly in position to pass the ball in panic because he loses control when moving forward. I suggest something about 80 for ball control, and 78 for DA.
I found this video of his football on youtube, and you can see the things i am talking about, it's from his Celta days https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dITqSKyMDfQ
1:03 2:23 are good examples.
Also, he's attack is way overrated, he doesn't seem like a player who contribute a lot in attacking sense. With this passing, attacking and DA + BC and low def value + free roaming card and high agression he seems like a pretty good distributor who can also help the team by being in the last third of the field finishing the actions and scoring, and that's obviously not the case. Apart from decreasing everything that i already suggested i also feel that his attack can go down to 71 - 72, and he should also loose his Free Roaming card, + can lose a good chunk of points in agression value, something like in a range of mid 70's.
But let's go to defensive and a value for response. He's a player who seems tactically very good, he didn't become a defensive player in january surely, he really well knows his duties, he's good off the ball, good in covering the space, and also quite responsive and agressive in defensive way. I suggest a big increase with 74 for defence, 83 for response , + adding *Covering and *Enforcer. Also, stamina could be bigger as he seems like a tireless machine who can run and run and run, he really looks like a mid yellow for that, even higher a bit maybe.Mentality could go up to. Remove Dribbling, Side
So i explained my suggestions but i'll write them again.
DEF 64 > 74
Tenacity 74 > 79
Remove Free Roaming Card, remove *Dribbling, add Enforcer + Covering.
