The man was known to be the biggest hothead in the world in his prime and he locked down the midfield against the best in the world for AC Milan. With 5-Star Skills and a big boost from his Prime Icon version, Gennaro Gattuso has his FUT Birthday Icon SBC available in FIFA Ultimate Team now!
Italy’s destroyer in the midfield, Gattuso’s SBC is fairly expensive coming in at a price of 259.6K coins and needs 5 segments to unlock his card.
He has a lot of good key characteristics such as:
- 80 Acceleration and 80 Sprint Speed is good enough for a stay back CDM in game
- 82 Vision and 88 Short Passing and 83 Long Passing allow him to play the ball from defence to attack
- He gets a significant boost in his Dribbling stats with 84 Balance, 96 Reactions, 84 Ball Control, 81 Dribbling and 87 Composure allowing him to keep the ball and move it smoothly under pressure
- Elite tier defensive stats with 96 Interceptions, 94 Defensive Awareness, 95 Standing Tackle and 93 Sliding Tackle
- Great Physicals with 95 Stamina, 87 Strength and 97 Aggression. He’ll be able to boss that midfield for the entire game
- Medium/High workrates are perfect for a defensive midfielder
- He has 5-Star Skill moves and the Flair Passes as well as the Flair Traits to make him versatile in his control and distribution of the ball
He is the perfect destroyer in game at a CDM. He can play as a lone CDM in a 4-3-3(2) or as the primary CDM in a 4-2-2-2 or a 4-2-3-1. His defensive and physical stats combined with his workrates make him ideal for that position.
He has a very similar player profile to Fantasy FUT Hero Rafael Márquez and FUT Birthday Icon Marcel Desailly. Highly physical players with great defensive stats that can play the destroyer CDM role to perfection.
The card has a few drawbacks such as:
- He can’t be Lengthy AcceleRATE type without an Anchor Chemistry Style
- 74 Agility and his Stocky body type make him slightly clunky
- 64 Heading Accuracy ad 67 Jumping with his 5’9 Height make his easy to beat in the air
