[edit] Background

Miguel Veloso (May 11, 1986) born in Coimbra is a Portuguese defensive midfielder who plays for Sporting Lisbon. He started out as a centre back but eventually moved on to as a defensive midfielder and can therefore play both positions and he is also an accomplished left-back.

During the 05-06 season, Veloso was loaned Olivais e Moscavide. He was one of the most influential members for them that year. The next season, he returned to Sporting and was given the #24 jersey. He however found it difficult to play as more experienced players were ahead of him. In the 07/08 campaign, he played regularly alongside fellow countryman Joao Moutinho and has attracted interest from clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and A.C Milan.

[edit] Strengths

Veloso possesses many strengths, such as marking, passing, positioning, creativity, composure and strength. He can be used as either a defensive DM or an attacking DM. He is a well-rounded player. He's a young and versatile player who although doesn't develop further dramatically, does improve enough to become one of the best or the best defensive midfielders in the world. He is a consistent and a reliable player.

[edit] Weaknesses

Veloso doesn't possess many weakness, if any. However if used as an attacker, his flair stat does let him down a little. However that is compensated by his high creativity stat.

[edit] Player Instructions

I don't believe Miguel needs any specific player instructions. I believe he succeeds well at the team's default, but however if desired I believe any individual instructions given will prove successful. He is best played as a defensive midfielder. But can also play centre midfield if needed.

[edit] Conclusion

At the age of 21, Veloso has the potential to be the best in the world. He has a fantastic passing ability, creativity, marking and others. He is very well rounded and can be purchased for roughly 9 million pounds (at the start of the game) and will be a star at any level.
