He's not worth it at all. Nene is just as good and you get get him for under 20k.
Who have you got at the back?
Nene isn't fast enough. I find pace to be just as important as last year, I had a hybrid with Eto'o and Doumbia up front and Gonzalez and Sturridge on the wings (all 90+ pace) and won 12 straight games through division 2 and 3 with them, after having a pretty modest record in the bottom 2 divisions with a very good La Liga team (Song, Cesc, Navas, Falcao, Villa, Pique, Masch, etc..). I'm rocking Bastos atm.
Back four is Mariano, Dede, Santana and Siqueira. I used David Luiz in my hybrid and he's still OP. Dede is lethal from corners. Need a better LB though, will probably get that silver player Cesar.
Best players i've used so far: Tello, Sturridge, Jonathan Pereira, Hart, Mirallas, Ramires, Dede, Falcao. Eto'o is easily the best i've used though. Was disappointed with Cesc, Neuer, Mascherano, Navas, Chicharito, Javi Martinez.
