FIFA 16 Leeds: – For those gamers that don’t like playing online, manager mode is their FIFA haven. A place where you can take apart any team you want, and completely construct a new one, however you please. Sometimes though, it helps to have a helping hand in explaining how to best use different teams on Career Mode. So, RealSport have devised a team-by-team guide for anyone looking to start a manager mode on FIFA 16.
A list of some other useful FIFA guides: Complete Premier League Team-By-Team Guide For Completing Career Mode:
- Title hopefuls = Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool
- European football-chasers = Spurs, Everton, Leicester, Southampton, West Ham
- Mid-tablers = Newcastle, Stoke, West Brom, Swansea, Crystal Palace, Watford
- Relegation-battlers = Norwich, Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Sunderland
- Championship: QPR, Fulham, Burnley, Middlesbrough, Brighton
- Always choose the lenient option when selecting your ‘financial strictness’. This way you get 85% of the money that the board receives from outgoing transfers to spend on new players
- Use the new ‘Training’ feature – even if you can’t be bothered to always carry out the drills, simulate 5 drills every week, it’s a useful way to help your players grow outside of matches

- Wage budget – £221k
What the team needs

Who you should get rid of
A general rule here is to sell of players that are old (31+), as on FIFA, their ratings can deteriorate pretty fast, so it’s best to cash in on them while their still valuable. Below is the name of the Leeds players you should get rid of and the lowest value at which you should sell that player:
- Ross Turnbull – £300k
- Scott Wootton – £500k
- Kalvin Phillips- £400k
- Casper Sloth – £700k
- Mustapha Carayol – £600k
Total Received = £2.5m
New Budget = £8m
Who you should buy
If you can, aim to sign younger players, as FIFA has this thing for making a majority of all decent young players develop pretty well, even if they don’t in real life. If you can’t sell the ‘deadweight’ players, the following are those you can sign within your original budget (£5.5m):
Name: Dzhambulat Khatokhov (69)
Cost: £1.3m (Lyon)
Is he worth it?
- Grows to around 83 and is a great left back to put alongside Bamba
- At 69 overall, he would be Leeds’ joint best left back but what provide good cover for Taylor and becomes better overall. The best bit? At £1.3m, why the hell not?!
Name: Nahuel Leiva (70)
Is he worth it?
- Villareal value their 18-year-old right-mid prodigy, so to get him for only £1.5m8 is a real steal.
- Botaka will get better over time, but not as good as Leiva, and with only one natural right mid in the squad, he’s a must purchase.
Name: Jeremiah St Juste (70)
Cost: £3.1m (Herenveen)
Is he worth it?
- Juste comes with cheap wages (around £4k a week). If managed correctly he can achieve a low 80-rating quite easily. Bargain
- Juste would come in and immediately be the second best centre-back at the club, and forms a really nice partnership with Bamba.
