I would like to ask for your constructive feedback on how to replicate the real-life Messi role and how to get the most out of him (possibly two separate things).
So far I have tried several roles on him, mostly on a 4-4-2 similar to what I think Valverde plays.
-As a False 9, paired with a CF(att). In this case, he gets a lot of assists but doesn't score much. Also, he doesn't dribble as much as I would like, although I have "dribble more" enabled, but either passes or shoots from far away (with shoot less often he doesn't shoot at all)
-As a Trequartista in attack, paired with a CF(sup). In this case he scores like crazy, but he doesn't return to the middle so much as he does IRL.
-As a Trequartista in AMC paired with a CF(sup) upfront. Now sometimes he gets lost in the game.
I know it could also mean it is a matter of general team tactics, so I would also like to hear your experiences.
PS: I know Barcelona is not a really difficult challenge. I just want the fun of replicating Messi, so please don't bomb me with such messages. Thanks.
