I made this set almost entirely comparing him with Mandzukic. So let's start from the beginning.
I have him as a AMF because in every source I found they list him as a midfielder, BUT I rated him in stats as a SS because I think it suits him the most.
His positioning during set pieces is quite awesome, combined with his height and header, he often scores beatiful goals.
Decreased his defence because I don't see him that better then Mandzukic.
Raised his balance because he's quite strong, and I changed his height and weight to official sources.
If he was still 180/74 it could have been 82 max, but with this current values, he doesn't need it.
Didn't changed stamina because this value is quite good compared to Mandzukic.
Swapped TS and ACC and lowered by one point. He's fast, and combined with his height he can outrun/outmuscle smaller players.
Increased his response as he clearly improved here, often arrives in the area in the right time to score a sitter.
His agility could be higher, but S-cobar rated Mandzukic on 81, so I don't think he should be on pair/better.
In dribbling in this current set he's way underrated, he can dribble good, doesn't use any tricks, but instead he beats his opponents by "Messi-movement" (when he does the left-right dribble, can't really explain it, you just have to see it).
In passing he was also underrated, when he's on the side, he often crosses and assists for the goal.
Currently he's Brugge's top scorer, his goals aren't anything fascinating, but always precise, also he scores time-to-time some volleys.
In free kicks, he also shows decent accuracy and a nice swerve.
Now we come to his biggest asset, header & jump. It's quite amazing how sometimes he lifts himself up in the air and strucks the ball.
As I mentioned before, with his height and positioning, he's fearful in set pieces.
You can see his technique when he strikes volleys, too bad he isn't more consistent.
In mentality and teamwork he's similiar to Mandzukic, but Mandzukic helps defence more and chases back.
I removed 1-touch play because with current shooting values he doesn't need it, and he isn't really that good in that to deserve 1-touch play.
