They really do care deeply about what changes the fans want to see in their titles.

Mile Jacobson acknowledged the fans outcry for improved role descriptions and delivered exactly that!

New animations for every role

Role descriptions in FM can be pretty tricky to understand, even for you Football Manager veterans.

Well, that is no longer an issue in FM 21, as each and every role now has an animated image supporting it in order to allow you to know exactly what you're asking of your players.

FM New Animations

From Winger to Advanced Playmaker to Inside Forward to Trequarista, there are plenty of options available for your wide attacking midfielders, but it'll no longer be a game of guess work as you can now see exactly what they are intending to do.

Plenty of additions still to come

We are now less than a month away from the release of FM 21, yet there is no sign of the changes slowing down!

The new role animations are just one of a plethora of new features that have been confirmed as being added to the Football Manager title, with no suggestion that Football Manager are content just yet.
