INFO:
Morini was a centre back. He played 170 matches for Sampdoria from 1963 to 1969. He then left for Juventus, where he spent the majority of his career, playing 377 games until 1980. He retired that same year after a short spell in Canada at Toronto Blizzard. He gained 11 caps for Italy.
Morini was a solid, careful and accurate defender. Tough but fair tackler, he never stopped marking his opponent, rarely committing fauls. Nicknamed "Morgan" like the pirate, he excelled at anticipating his opponents and just like a pirate he stole them the ball with ease, thanks also to a thin physique, very good ability in the air and speed, especially on the sprint. He was able to efficiently stop legendary strikers like Gigi Riva and Roberto Boninsegna. Riva especially described Morini as the toughest defender he played against, the one who gave him the hardest time and Cagliari's striker admitted that many times he was the one who had to give up in the duel. Morini was very focused on the defence and never scored a goal. However, he prevented so many times scoring chances of his that everytime it was like he scored a goal. He wasn't technically very gifted and avoided delivering long balls, preferring simple short passes to the nearest teammate. He had a great athletic condition, thanks to which he could play even with physical problems. His kicks didn't seem powerful because several times, when he kicked the ball away, it didn't go far and was often easily reached by an opponent.

I don't see a point why he needs mid yellow value for STA considering that he didn't cover much of the field except for his own half. I could understand such a value for sweepers like Wilson and Frosio (who both have 84 as well) who also took part in the build-up of the game and went forward with the ball but those stoppers who waited in their own half for the attackers to come certainly don't need mid-yellow values for STA.

So, is high STA needed only for that matter in case of a defender? I thought it could be useful for the fact that he didn't give up on marking his opponent. I guess MEN works for that, right?

Friend, you are slightly taking some texts very literally :^/, Francesco Colonnese was not very different to that Morini info you left on the set, but I wouldn't give him 84-85 STA because he was only chasing with determination to Pippo Inzaghi or Roberto Mancini for example.

Okay, I get it now, thanks. I'll go for STA 81.
