Best Assistant Managers | FM22

Looking for the perfect assistant manager? That would make sense considering you’re reading an article about the best assistant managers in FM22!

Of course, you’re the gaffer but the increased staff interaction and re-designed responsibilities screen in FM22 means getting the right assistant manager is more important than ever.


Imagine this… you’ve made your dream move to the Big Apple and are the manager of the New York Red Bulls – okay, this may just be my dream job! – but don’t appoint the right assistant, and it all goes wrong.

It happens. Just ask Paul Cook!

What can your assistant do to earn his wage, I hear you ask?

Simply – it’s up to you! Want him to handle your team talks, he’ll handle them. Want him to handle training, he’ll handle that!

Fancy a nice long vacation to a sunny country instead of bothering with those pre-season friendlies? Just delegate them to your assistant.

Or maybe you just want him to do the default actions at the start of the game, that’s fine too!

He can be as involved as much or as little as you choose.
Make the most of your staff!
