Every release of a new Football Manager comes with a huge amount of excitement for players of the game. With updates to squads and new teams being added into different leagues it can often be hard to decide what team to use and whether you want to take a team from the lowest division and eventually take them to European glory, or if you want to rescue a former giant club and guide them back to the top. So in an attempt to help, here is our list of the best teams to use in Football Manager 2020.
After only being promoted to the Premiership this year it will be a challenge for Aston Villa to avoid relegation. By taking over the team you will inherit a squad that has been bolstered by adding 12 players in the off-season including Tyrone Mings and Matt Targett. The squad is almost completely different from the team that won promotion for the Villains. It will be a tough task to get the best out of the players and develop good chemistry around the squad. But, it can be done with the right transfers and squad management.
Inter Milan have gone a long time without challenging for the Serie A title. With huge transfers this summer they will be looking to steal Juventus’s crown of Serie A champions. Taking charge of this team will allow you to have access to talents such as; Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Diego Godin. With plenty of other talents in the squad, you will never be short of options especially with Serie A allowing 12 substitutes on the bench.
After narrowly missing out on promotion to the Premiership last season. Leeds will feel like they can go up this season after a 15-year absence from the top flight. With plenty of talent scattered throughout the squad including the likes of; Kalvin Phillips, Kiko Casilla and the addition of striker, Eddie Nkeitah, on loan from Arsenal, you will have a good shot at challenging for promotion to the Premiership. But, can you replicate Marco Bielsa’s attractive style of play and take them back to the top?
With Real Madrid’s recent fall from grace, the squad is in desperate need of a good manager to guide them back to the pinnacle of Spanish and European football. Last season they finished 19 points behind rivals Barcelona and 8 points behind city rivals Atletico Madrid. The loss of Cristiano Ronaldo has also been very damaging to the squad. The team does still boasts a vast amount of young and experienced talent. Can you be the one to find a balance between youth and experience and guide this once great club back to the top?
Ajax narrowly missed out on the Champions League final last season and as was expected, some of their most talented players were picked up by some of the bigger European clubs. The loss of captain, Mathijs De Ligt and Frenkie De Jong was huge for the club. However, they always seem to have n=an abundance of young players who can step up when needed. Can you follow the tradition of promoting players from the youth academy and turning them into world-beaters and emulate the 1995 Ajax team winning the Champions League?
Blyth Spartans currently play in the Vanarama League North and after their impressive run in the FA Cup in the 2014/15 season, they have not really made any progression through the leagues. Can you be the manager to add some talent and young players to the squad in order to propel them through the leagues and up into the Premiership?
