Athletic Bilbao Career Starts

Athletic Bilbao | FM Career

Our dear friends our FM expert started his ultimate coaching career with Athletic Bilbao. If somebody thinks why ultimate, reason is simple, Athletic Bilbao can't sign any other players except BASQUE nationality….

This can be tough challenge as you probably realize that there will be no 11 wonderkids and star players, but lets set first goals.

5 year plan is to be at least always third behind Barca and Real Madrid and with great commitment and tactics maybe even to win the league… There will probably be calculations, to play Champions League at max or try to win Europa League, but let’s decide on that when we start playing.

Game is started with large database, choosing; Spain, England, Germany, France and Italy as active leagues to get more realistic seasons….

Leagues chosen; Spain, England, Germany, France and ItalyAlso I enabled player attribute masking in order to get more realistic in judging player value.

So, game is loaded and first day at new club is here, I am first managing non-squad matters, such as friendly fixtures, hiring adequate non playing staff to get good help when needed.

Board offered me to chose my season goal, and I decided to choose Champions league qualification because I think it is realistic. I guess I'll  be fighting Villareal, Sevilla, Atletico Madrid and Valencia for 3rd place and hope to win that fight. Media predicts me 8th place but I will do my best to prove them wrong.

Start of season expectations


















As I said on fixtures I cancelled all predefined fixtures and have arranged my own tour in Brazil to get some money, around 1,5 mil Euros, after that a home game against Juventus  to see my abilities against high profile clubs, and one easier against Cella for now.

I also decided to fire all my staff except one youth coach Juan Luis Fuentes, so now I need to find adequate staff in a short time…

So, do you have any suggestions which quality staff I can sign to help me achieve my goals?
Keep in mind my budget is around 4mil Euros and wage budget 500K/per week…
