Training has been given a complete overhaul in Football Manager 2019, giving the manager more control on the daily routine for your players.
To make sure your players will get the best development available, you will also have to sign the best coaches. That is why we have created this article, which shows you the Football Manager 2019 best coaches.
All the coaches on our lists have been handpicked by the FMInside backroom staff and will all give you at least 4 stars in their own specific coaching areas. We also made sure that the coaches on this list are willing to sign a contract for that specific role.
New training areas
As we said in the intro, training has been given a complete overhaul in Football Manager 2019. Not only will you be able to pick a daily schedule for your team, your backroom staff has also seen some changes. The categories you were used to have in Football Manager 2018 and earlier versions have been replaced.
In FM19 the training areas have been divided into five different categories:
And these categories have all been divided into two different areas. Goalkeeping has Shot Stopping and Handling, Fitness has Strength and Quickness. The biggest changes have been made in the other three categories. Defending, Attacking and Possession are now divided in the categories Tactical and Technical. That means that every category has a technical and tactical side to it, making it more diverse.
Potential ability for coaches
Did you know coaches have a potential ability too? Coaches can develop their attributes during a save and that will improve or decline their quality. One way to develop a coach is by sending him on a coaching course. With that in mind, signing a younger coach on this list would be advised, as he will be able to get even better.
5 star coaching
To get a maximum result on training, you will have to make sure to get the maximum rating for every single category. The rating is shown by a set of stars, where 5 stars is the maximum. The starts not only represent the quality of training, but also the coaches’ workload. The higher the workload, the lower the quality of that training category. Even if a coach has all needed attributes set on 20, a high workload will take away stars.
1 coach per category
The stars in the training area are used for both quality and workload. The more players you have, the higher the workload is. The higher the workload, the lower the quality of training. So it is a bit of a mix and match. Ideally you want at least one coach per category. However, to minimize workload, you should actually have at least two coaches per category.
TIP: You and your assistant(s) are also considered as coaches. Use yourself and your assistant to decrease the workload on some of the categories.
