EA SPORTS FC has added a new backroom staff feature, meaning Manager Career now includes different coaches you can hire. Here, we’re going to look at the ways for you to get the best coaches in EA FC 24.

The new Tactical Vision option impacts a number of other features in Career Mode, allowing you to scout players who share the same football philosophy.

By the same token, you can also recruit coaches to help you execute your vision for the team and improve members of the squad, with certain attributes required for your system in mind. So, it’s not just about custom tactics and the best formations anymore – there’s another layer of customization to improve your performance.

You can filter down the list as well, using X or Square.

The name of the best coaches in your Career Mode save will vary depending on country. For example, a Premier League team might have a 5-star coach called Jack Walker, whereas in Germany it might be Ralf Zimmerman.

However, what is the same across nations is the attributes that make them great coaches. You need to look for the following requirements when picking a coach:

  • Tactical Vision: Does it match your team’s philosophy?
  • Knowledge: Expert is the highest level here. Only hire Expert or Accomplished coaches
  • Weekly salary: Good coaches cost between 4,000 and 8,500 per week
  • ATT skills: Is their star rating high?
  • MID skills: Is their star rating high?
  • DEF skills: Is their star rating high?
  • GK skills: Is their star rating high?

Don’t make the mistake of just picking the most expensive ones, either. If you do that you may end up with a whole backroom staff that loves training defenders but can’t help in an attacking sense.

If you recruit position by position, you will end up with a cheap and effective backroom staff, each of whom specializes in certain areas. The better they fit your philosophy, the better they will be in training up their departments to deliver outcomes on the pitch.
