In a recent 'The Athletic' article it was revealed that EA FC 24 will have some familiar new features to the game that have been previously seen in Football Manager.

Football Manager is known for its in-depth tactical approach to matches being able to have full control over how your team plays down to how each player moves on the field with specific roles and in-game management.

While Career Mode has a very basic version of tactics in the game, fans have been asking for years for a more in-depth tactical version of the game. With some fans debating that Career Mode is dying due to its simplicity. Some fans also state that Career Mode is meant to be simple and easy to play for all ages. Thus, there is a debut for two difficulties of Career Mode which could allow for two versions being a tactical game and a simpler version of tactics being implemented into EA FC 24.

When it comes to hiring assistants, their performance will be influenced by two crucial factors. First and foremost, their proficiency in executing your chosen tactical approach, and secondly, their ability to foster player development.

To ensure optimal success and significant player growth, it is essential to recruit coaches who specialise in your selected tactical style. These specialised coaches will play a pivotal role in shaping your team's strategy and enhancing the skills of your players, propelling your team towards greater achievements.
