This lad should put a smile on every A.C. Milan fan that plays Football Manager 2014. Their messiah is coming back in a form of a young wonderkid from Palermo, his name is Davide Monteleone. Media in Italy compare this young player to the legendary captain of the rossoneri, Franco Baresi. Is he any good to be compared with such a legend? Well, read on and find out...
First look at his starting attributes and we can already see that this is no ordinary Limited Defender we're dealing with here. Great ratings for a 17 year old kid, who with a potential ability of -9, surely has everything set his way on becoming a top class central defender.
Attributes needed for a quality Limited Defender are; Heading (11), Marking (11), Tackling (12), Determination (15), Positioning (12), Jump Reach (13) and Strength (13). Ratings in the brackets are Davide's, and it is quite obvious that this lad will become a monster defender, a brick wall. Bare in mind, he is only 17, seventeen! Even at this young age his already better than the bunch.
Once developed, but not at his peak, Davide becomes a true top class central defender, that any team in Football manager 2014 should have. All needed attributes rose nicely, and for sure you're looking at one of the best central defenders in this years edition of Football Manager.
His a constant performer who enjoys playing important matches and is force to be reckoned from attacking set pieces. He does get injured quite a bit, but no major long-lasting injuries to worry about. His main weakness however, are his speed and acceleration. This two should be trained more the any other attributes to make this lad a true top class defender.
One more good thing is his low estimated cost. Palermo are ready to sell their prime gem for a bargain price of £2M at the start of the game. This is one player you simply can't let get away. A top quality young player, that needs some first team football, best to send him on loans for a season or two, and a quality training seasons.
Davide Monteleone is a must buy player for any club in Football Manager 2014.
