Player Review

Around half a million coins are required to unlock this untradable Zanetti, but is it good value for money?

The short answer is no, here's why.

Yes it's a good card. In fact, with 87-rated defending and 80-rated physicality, there are few better.

That 4* weak foot gives you all the more reason to go for the Argentine and, with wingers abused on the current meta more than ever before, his defensive capabilities and ability to play on either side makes Zanetti all the more worthwhile.

But you can pick up his tradeable card for just 10k more. Yes you don't get the packs, but let's be honest, it's not worth the gamble.

A great right back, but be sensible and go tradeable.
