Leaving the game without giving a post-match team talk will result in you receiving a warning, but thankfully you can also hand it over to your assistant, allowing them to do the shouting instead.

Over 4,000 New Strings

FM22 will benefit from a ton of new interaction strings that will keep communication feeling fresh and authentic.

From team talks to team meetings, you'll never have to put up with the same arduous lines of questioning again.

Post-Match Chats

In the past you could only call a team meeting during extenuating circumstances, FM22 will now allow you to speak to your players regularly after a match.
