Time to get back on track with our daily wonderkid reviews, and today we'll take a look at yet another hidden Football Manager 2014 gem, Elio Capradossi. Young talent hidden for most players in Roma's Under 19 team. Can play both for Italy and Uganda.
Taking a look at this lads starting attributes, nothing says that he will develop into a top class Limited Defender in FM14, yet he does. But if we take a closer look at the attributes needed for a quality Limited defender, such as Heading, Marking, Tackling, Determination, Positioning, Jumping Reach, and Strength, we can clearly see that Elio has all those attributes fairly developed at such young age.
Based around this information about his attributes, we can conclude that there is a fair possibility that he can develop to be a top defender. It's also worth noticing that his Potential Ability stands at -9, which tells us that with proper training and first team football, Elio can develop quite nicely.
And as we predicted about his development, it happened. Elio became one of the best Limited Defenders in FM 2014. All attributes needed for a quality DC rose above average, meaning above 15. Great development, most encouraging for anyone thinking of purchasing this young talent to their squad.
Elio's estimated cost stands somewhere between £3.8M - £4.9M. In our eyes this seems as a bargain price to pay Roma for their hidden gem. LLM may not agree with us, but we do encourage anyone looking for a quality DC for future to seriously consider Elio as their next transfer.
We grade him as a very good, quality signing player in Football Manager 2014, which may not make an immediate impact, but will be their for your team in the future.
