Football Manager's official Twitter account has unveiled some brand new features coming to the game!
From Assistant to Analyst
You now have far more role options to recommend when talking to your player about joining the backroom.
You can choose to recommend different specific roles based on players' attributes and qualities.
The recommendations you can make to your players include managerial, coaching, scouting, medical, director, sports science and analysis roles.
Combined goal and assist bonuses
You can now include combined goals and assist bonuses in players' contracts.
These bonuses can encourage players to sign with your club, or can convince current important players to extend their contracts.
You can choose to add anywhere from 5 to 30 combined goals and assists as a bonus during a player's contract negotiations.
A style named after you
If your unique brand of football catches the media's eye they'll give it a name to use in the press!
We've all heard of Sarri-Ball, and more recently Bielsa-Ball, but how about having your own brand of football recognised?
It will be a proud moment for any Football Manager when the press name your unique and effective style of football.
Planning for the future
You can now promise a player they'll become a regular starter once the man in front of him leaves.
You can select the first team player, who is on his way out of the club, who will be replaced by the youngster.
This allows you to keep hold of your promising young talented players, by reassuring them with first-team football in the near future.
If your club vision demands you to sign players from a certain nation, you can now request an affiliate club that helps you do just that.
This means you can please the board by achieving the objectives which have been set.
With affiliate clubs so prevalent in today's game, it seems right to have introduced them to FM2021.
Football Manager has revamped the in-game goal alert, inspired by a TV broadcast-style.
The alerts will now feature player's milestones, for example a player's 15th goal of the season.
This new feature brings more realism to the game, and allows players to become immersed during a match.
Better backroom advice
Your staff will notify you in advance if your squad is too big and in breach of competition squad rules.
This can save you from receiving a poor reputation as a manager in the press.
Backroom staff are now becoming more important and helpful than ever!
