Career history stats
Wonderkid that made quite a fuss on Football Manager 2014 blogs and forums, and intrigued us even more to review him, Richairo Zivkovic. Let us see together is all the hype about him justified, or is he just one of those players that will fail miserably, and enter the all time hall of Football Manager flops.
We’ll take a look at his starting attributes first. As he is only 16 years old at the start of the game, we can’t expect a top class striker immediately. First thing we notice looking at his attributes are his Acceleration (14) and Pace (15), so a pacey attacker, not bad.
His mental attributes are fairly good for his age, especially ones needed for a good composed striker. Also if take a quick glance at his technical attributes, we can notice that striker required attributes are solid.
So, solid starting attributes in combination with great Potential Ability of -9, which is equalling to 150-180 PA, do promise that Zivkovic could develop into a top class striker in FM 2014.
At the age of 25, Richairo developed quite nicely. Especially his mental attributes, and some technical attributes. His physical attributes remained somewhat the same, mayor rise of strength,followed with a decrease of natural fitness is most notable.
He didn’t score as much as we would like from him in our save game, but nevertheless he managed to put few balls behind opposition goalkeepers, which gives us a reason to grade him with four stars regarding his future development.
Best thing is that Richairo is a free agent. Although a registered player at FC Groningen 19s, he is on a youth contract deal until 5/9/2013, so be sure to offer him contract by then.
