In my opinion, Eduardo Salvio is the next ‘Marquinhos’ on Football Manager 2010. He is a creative AMR that can also play up front so we already have similarities to Marquinhos. Salvio has some of the biggest clubs in the world after him, and in the summer he turned down a move to english giants Manchester United because of the competition for places. Good move my friend 🙂 Eduardo Salvio is a 19 year old Argentinian who plays his trade at Lanus. On Football Manager 2010 he has some great stats with a lot of potential.
It’s obvious Salvio’s strength’s are his pace and acceleration. Any winger with great attributes in these two areas, mixed with high agility and flair is going to be an awesome player up and down the touch line. His lightening pace will scare a load of defender. Eduardo Salvio’s technical attributes are a bit of a let down but he is still developing at 19 years of age. Saying that, his passing, technique and crossing attributes are not that low and these are 3 key technical attributes for a winger. Salvio has bags of potential. I have always believed that a high determination stat on a youth will help them develop faster. Will have to get word from SI on this soon!
In my current Arsenal career, I am playing Salvio as a winger set to support. This is the best setting for him because he has all the right attributes to play as this type of winger. His stats may not be as good as some of the wingers in your squad, but I still reccommend giving him some action as that is what he will need. If you read my Marco Verratti Player Profile, you may have started to understand my concerns with playing youth too young, but Salvio is a little bit older than Verratti so giving him more first team action will be vital. I still think a tutor would be good for Eduardo Salvio, find a suitable winger in your squad who you would like Salvio to take tips from and try to become like him. I have no set schedule for Salvio, but continue to use Tugs Training for Football Manager 2010.
Eduardo Salvio starts the game with a value of 2.1 million, like 95% of the wonderkids on the game, the clubs are reluctant to let go. I managed to get him for 4.1 million, which is a bargain for someone with so much potential in my opinion. If you have the funds available at your club, definitely try to snap him up before someone else does! He does not ask for much wages (£6,000 a week) so definitely a great long term invenstment.
My Rating: 6/10
