Earlier in the week, I did an article of teams to manage consisting of teams from England and North America, this time we head to South America, with 6 teams that you should manage in FM18.
1. Red Bull Brasil
A team that at the time of writing aren’t even 10 years old, being found in November 2007 by Red Bull, and they currently play in Campeonato Paulista, the top-flight of football in Sao Paolo. They share their ground with Ponte Preta. They’ve boasted eight managers in under 10 years, can you be the man? Red Bull Brasil have links other Red Bulls’ clubs, including RB Leipzig, Red Bull Salzburg and New York Red Bulls.
2. Newell’s Old Boys
The club is probably most famous because of Lionel Messi who scored over 500 goals there as a youngster, but can you make them a dominant force on the pitch? Can you run the save so long that you are able to tempt Lionel Messi to finish his career back in home country?
3. C.D. Jorge Wilstermann
Jorge Wilstermann are one of the most successful football teams in Bolivia, having won their league 13 times, and even have a 36,000 seater stadium, will you be able to get them to success again?
Gurani are a Paraguayan, based in Pinoza. They are one of the oldest, and most successful football teams in Paraguay, having won the Premiera Divison a record 11 times, and the current defending champions? Can you lead them to more domestic success and then some continental success?5. Colon de Santa Fe
Club Atlético Colón, or as it is more commonly known as, Colon de Santa Fe, are a football club from the Santa Fe area of Argentina. They currently play in the top tier of Argentina, but have only ever won two trophies in their entire history. Can you win some major silverware to add to their trophy cabinet for the first time since 1965?
6. National Team
Perhaps you don’t fancy a club save, so why not go for a national team job with a country from South America. You could go for one of the bigger nations such as Brazil which boasts Neymar, David Luiz and Roberto Firmino, or perhaps go for a smaller nation like Peru or Venezuela?
