Sports Scientists have been overhauled for Football Manager 2018 and they’re now ready to make a huge impact on your squad.

In Football Manager 2018 your medical team take on a bigger role than ever before, providing you with more information about your club’s current injury situation as well as advising you about how to avoid injuries occurring in training.

There are five panels within the section offering the most detailed insight and analysis of your team’s condition in the series’ history.

The first of these, the ‘Overview’ panel, shows you who in the squad is currently injured, which players have recently returned from injury and any players that are at increased risk of picking up an injury.

At the top of the screen you’ll also be see an assessment from your Sports Science team about your current training workload, your injury record compared to the rest of the league and any changes you can make to your training methods to avoid injuries ahead of upcoming fixtures.

You’ll want to go to the ‘Risk Assessment’ panel.

This shows you your upcoming fixtures and current team training workload, allowing you to easily match the intensity of your training sessions to your upcoming matches.

Your Sports Scientists will point out when it would be best to lighten the players’ workload and when they need to put the hours in on the training pitch; keeping your players injury-free for longer and potentially proving to be the difference between defeat and victory.

The ‘Risk Assessment’ screen also gives you information on each player in your squad’s susceptibility to injury, overall injury risk, current workload in both training and matches and their general condition.
