Matias Almeyda | 1998-2000

Postby PES Stats Database » 2009 Nov 18, 19:25

Club: Lazio


INFO
Spoiler: show
Almeyda has played for several clubs, including River Plate, Lazio, Parma and Inter Milan. He spent three seasons in Rome, becoming a firm fan favourite, especially after scoring a 35-yard goal against Gianluigi Buffon, helping them to the league and cup Double in 2000 as well as European Cup Winners' Cup the previous year. Almeyda was voted Serie A best player of the 1997-98 season.

In summer 2002, Almeyda was exchanged with Vratislav Gresko. Almeyda joined Brescia on free transfer in summer 2004. The following year, he returned to Argentina and agreed to play for Quilmes in Copa Libertadores. He announced his retirement after the team's elimination from that tournament.

After one and a half years away from football, in which he represented Argentina in a Showball tour around the world alongside Diego Maradona and participated in the Indoor Football World Cup in Spain, Almeyda decided to get back into the game. 26 March, 2007, he signed for the Norwegian Premiership club Lyn, and made his début 13 May, coming on as a substitute. Almeyda played regularly on the reserve team and in the Norwegian Cup, but was only fielded in one more league game, again as a substitute. 26 May 2007, Almeyda reached a mutual agreement with Lyn and the contract was terminated.

On 19 February 2009 the former Argentina international defensive midfielder Almeyda has returned to football after retiring in May 2007. Almeyda has signed for Argentine third division club Fenix. Moreover, in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Incontro, he half-jokingly stated that he would relish a return to Lazio, where he played from 1997 to 2000.

On 19 August 2009, it was reported that Almeyda had signed with River Plate, joining well known River Plate veterans Marcelo Gallardo and Ariel Ortega after 13 years of playing football abroad, he has already played for River from 1991 to 1996.

He has played for the Argentine national football team and was a participant at the 1996 Olympic Games, and the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups.

his tw should be higher than 83 more like 86. he always played for the team covering gaps when others go forward, making himself availble for a all midfield passes, helped lazio keep the ball with accurate short passes.

This player should be updated. Well, El Pelado has been tireless runner one of the most dominant in the 90's, with very good defensive play, surely his STA is red material.. He mostly protected back line, had decent passing range with good control of circumstances on the field.

What era are you talking about? Early years at River or then at Lazio/Parma? I'll add his late set when he came back to football then.

The key change should be raising STA to red on pair with top leaders from 90's. Surely Almeyda was equally good as Davids, Zanetti or R. Keane. 95 is fair number here. He was such a beast on the field, covering lot of ground although he played like a deep sitting DMF protecting back line. As such I think DEF could be 1-2 points higher. He played very smart with excellent cotrol of play and it was really hard to beat him in any battle. Furthermore I'd lowered RES to mid yellow zone, he wasn't kind of player with world class reaction and speed, mostly thanks to his smartness and good positioning he was good defensively and based his defensive play more on that. TW should be lowered as well, he didn't supported offensive movements too much although he had good understanding with others and possessed pretty fair passing range. He has knew place nice long balls from back line starting attack from his half of pitch. TECH could be lowered to highest green and put LPA on yellow to reflect his consistently good long balls. Other values should be adjusted to new way of rating like little bit lower AGI, DS to white, lower FKA. P02 - Anchor Man should be added to cards with *Sliding *Covering and *Centre among special abilities.

Thanks for that. Added to the DB and updated. I have doubts about his mentality value giving such great number in stamina, probably konami's 83 will be fine (they rated him with 98 in sta though). If I find it I'll add his later River years

Good update, thanks. Yes, I have same opinion that everything above 83/84 would be too high for him in mentality. Probably 83 would be good value there.

Return to “90's”
