The defender who scored more goals than attackers and a legend for legendary clubs Ajax and FC Barcelona. For being an Icon and winning LaLiga Santander 4 years in a row Ronald Koeman has his FUT Birthday Icon SBC available in FIFA Ultimate Team now!
The Netherlands Icon's SBC is quite cheap, coming in at a price of 105.1K coins and needing 6 segments to unlock the card.
He has some very good stats and characteristics such as:
- 80 Acceleration and Sprint Speed with Lengthy AcceleRATE gives him good enough pace to navigate the midfield
- Incredible shooting outside the box and from set pieces with 99 Shot Power, 95 Long Shots, 83 Finishing, 98 Penalties and 98 Free-kick Accuracy with the Power Free-kick Trait
- Amazing ball distribution with 83 Vision, 89 Crossing, 89 Short Passing, 98 Long Passing and 95 Curve
- 92 Reactions, 87 Ball Control and 88 Composure allows him to be steady on the ball under pressure
- 94 Interceptions, 89 Defensive Awareness, 93 Standing Tackle and 90 Sliding Tackle give him everything he needs defensively
- 86 Jumping and 87 Stamina, Strength and Aggression allows him to have a good chance of winning 50/50’s and duels
- 5-Star Weak Foot allows him to be incredibly accurate with both feet on passes and shots
- High/Medium Workrates give him good movement if he’s playing in midfield
His ideal position in game is at CDM in a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-2-2-2. He offers good passing options, can break midfield lines and passes while also being effective if he gets into those late runs.
He has a similar player profile to that of Base Icon Lothar Matthäus.
The card does have a few drawbacks such as:
- His low Agility, Balance and Dribbling combined with his Average body type will make him clunky and unresponsive on the ball
- 3-Star Skill Moves limits his options trying to beat defenders
- His Pace might not be enough at this stage of the game

FUT Birthday Icon Ronald Koeman: Complete or Yeet?
This card isn’t going to revamp any teams, he isn’t crazy good but if you have cards such as Team of the Season Casemiro and want to play him at CB, this card is the perfect card to switch into midfield. He will be great as a team building utility and for a very good price which makes this SBC worth it. My verdict: Complete!
