Career history stats
Yassine Benzia, or as we see him as the next Karim Benzema, is one of the most interesting prospects in Football Manager 2014. This young Olympique Lyon player is one you should keep a close eye on at all times, cause he develops to be one of the best forwards in the game.
Yassine's attributes at the start of FM14 suggest that he could truly develop to be a top class forward in the future. All attributes (except for Crossing), needed for a quality Advanced Forward are here. Dribbling (15), Finishing (13), Heading (11), Anticipation (12), Composure (12), Flair (16), Off The Ball (13), Work Rate (11) and Pace (12).
If we take in our review the fact that his potential ability is set at -9, which is anywhere from 150 - 180, we can safely say that Yassine has a great future ahead of him. But as always, we have to mention that players like him need proper training and fair amount of first team football in order to develop.
At age of 27, from the screenshot above we can see that he truly is a top class forward. His attributes developed in every aspect of his game, from technical, mental to physical. And with these attributes he is easily even better than Karim Benzema at this age.
Solid career stats throughout his playing career, with his true ability shown at last two seasons of our save game. He also managed to cap 25 appearances for French national team, and added 6 goals in the process.
We've got no estimated cost regarding his transfer, as Lyon are not willing to let their young star go so easily. You could get him on a loan, or wait for him to develop at Lyon and then swoop him later on in the game.
Yassine is a great prospect for the future, and we highly recommend you seriously consider transfering him to your Football Manager 2014 team.
