INFO:
Oddi was a centre back. He played for Lazio from 1967 to 1975 - not counting loans at Sora and Massese - appearing in 131 matches. He then joined Cesena, where he played 289 games from 1975 to 1983. He retired in 1984 after a season at Lodigiani. He never scored during his whole career. He was called up for Italy in 1974 but didn't play.
Oddi was initially a central midfielder during his very early career. He then became a defensive midfielder, a sweeper, a side-back and eventually a centre back during his peak at Lazio. Strangely, when he became a pure defender he improved his ability with the ball, being considered one of the few centre backs capable to play equally well with both feet. A very reliable defender, he constantly marked his opponents, was very capable to stop them before they could shoot and rarely let them being able to find themselves in front of the goal. Despite being free from the task of setting up the action, he was gifted with good vision of the game. He had an incredible form for five consecutive seasons, from 1972 to 1977, having missed not a single Serie A match.

Is there any reason for STA 85 and MEN 86? Nothing in the info indicates that he deserves such values, especially STA seems totally overrated for a player who focussed only on defensive duties and didn't cross the middle line. CONS 8 is also too much, he played 30 matches in each of those seasons, not 40+.

Since he also has INJ A, I can decrease COND to 7. However, considering all competitions, it's at least 34 matches in 1972-73 and 1974-75, 42 in 1973-74. I understand that the number of matches in those years was lower compared to today but he still played all league games plus cups for five consecutive seasons. Then almost no player from before the 1990s might have COND 8 since they played less matches (unless they also competed in a continental cup but that's appliable to any era starting from the second half of 1900).
Regarding STA and MEN, I decided to give those values for his constancy in marking his opponent throughout the match. I remember you suggested me a yellow value in MEN for Enrico Piccioni, who was a midfielder but also the kind of player who focused on marking his opponent during the whole game, like Oddi. However, I may have exaggerated and I'll decrease both STA and MEN to 83.
