At 6'0" with M/H work-rates, could St Juste have jumped to the top of the Bundesliga centre back standings?

Cost

This St. Juste SBC will set you back 400,000 coins on PlayStation, 385,000 coins on Xbox and 450,000 coins on PC.

He's one of the more expensive SBC's of the FUT Birthday promotion, but is he worth the asking price?

Links

He may be expensive, but St Juste does have the benefit of a favourable league and nation combination.

Bundesliga

As far as Bunesliga links go, we'd be looking at either FUT Future stars Tapsoba (500k) or UCL Live Lukas Klostermann (290k) to partner St Juste at the heart of your defence.

Although those who completed either Player Moments Jerome Boateng or End of an Era Sven/Lars Bender are now in luck, as they have yet another Bundesliga option.

There are many goalkeeper options from the Bundesliga, though we'd opt for Manuel Neuer (65k).

Netherlands

There are plenty of nations options too, with the obvious choice being Virgil Van Dijk (80k)

If you picked up the highly acclaimed Sean Klabier ShowDown card then you're in luck, as St Juste could be the perfect partner for the Ajax man.

If you're opting for a Dutch keeper, the only end-game option is Edwin van der Sar (400k+)

Review

This is a decent card, though we can't help but feel he is a little overpriced.

We we're really hoping for 90+ rated pace, and as good as 5* skills are, it's a novelty on a centre back.

If you have the fodder to complete him for under 200k, then we'd say go ahead, but we won't be completing this one from scratch.
