JULIAN WEIGL
Nationality: Germany 🇩🇪
Club (first season): Borussia Dortmund
Rating: 81
Potential (1): 87
Age: 22

Weigl is much more than a defensive player. He is the first attacker of any team. In other words, a full package.

AMADOU DIAWARA
Nationality: Guinea 🇬🇳
Club (first season): Napoli
Rating: 77
Potential (1): 87
Age: 20

ONYINYE NDIDI
Nationality: Nigeria 🇳🇬
Club (first season): Leicester City
Rating: 77
Potential (1): 86
Age: 20

Ndidi is a very useful player because he can plays in several positions: CDM and CM are the most usual ones but he also has the skills needed to play as centre back. Good investment.

LEANDER DENDONCKER
Nationality: Belgium 🇧🇪
Club (first season): RSC Anderlecht
Rating: 79
Potential (1): 86
Age: 22

Dendoncker will not be much longer on Belgium. He’s too good to not be playing in one of the biggest leagues. He is a very balanced midfielder that doesn’t left anyone indifferent to his high stamina and strength.

You probably are not impressed with his stats. But what if we told you that he can reach overall 80 in the end of the first season? Don’t forget that he is only 20.

One of the things we love about football is to see young talents replacing older players. Martial looks a player of another planet. He is a good example of how the future of this sport is guaranteed.

  2. Hi, Rodrigo. I have a question. Can I buy Lionel Messi in winter for free?
    I also wanted to appreciate you for your instructions on FIFA 17 Career Mode.

    • I have a career with Chelsea. Also, I have added Casemiro to my squad. My current squad is: Courtois, Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill, Marcos Alonso, Casemiro, Fabregas/Bakayoko, Kante, Willian, Morata/Diego Costa, Hazard. (4-3-3) I also want to add Messi in January as a free transfer. Do you approve of my squad. And also I want to ask if you prefer Eriksen to Isco or not. I want to buy one of them in the next summer. Which one is better?

  3. Hi, again! I have a question about real life. Is it really necessary to be a footballer for becoming a good coach ( not necessarily much famous )?

    • Hi. It helps a lot to be a footballer. A good coach has to deal with many things and even if you love football, it may not be enough to understand what players are feeling and how to handle all the stuff.

      • I asked that question because one of my goals is to be a coach in the future, but I’m not good at playing football. In summary, thanks for your answer.
