FM19 Assistant Managers - Best 100 Shortlist

FM19 Assistant Managers - Best 100 ShortlistLet’s get a look at who are the best Assistant Managers in Football Manager 2019.

100 of the best assistant managers in FM19 that you should definitely try to sign for your FM 2019 team.

The assistant manager will provide summaries of the players of your team as well as your rivals. The assistant manager can additionally go to the press conferences, tunnel interviews, arrange friendly matches during your pre-seasons in FM 2019.

Your assistant manager can also manage the team for you in the friendlies, giving team-talks and give your players pre-match instructions on opposition players.

Assistant manager may also be responsible for the training section in the various teams (A, U19, Reserves / B).

When hiring your Assistant Manager, you should primarily look at three attributes.

Good Assistant Manager should have good or excellent;

  • Determination 
  • Level of Discipline
  • Motivation

By default Football Manager highlights these three attributes; Man Management, Judging Player Potential and Judging Player Ability.

But in all honesty, these three attributes better suit the role Director of Football than your FM19 assistant manager.

If you plan from your assistant to carry out training, then you should also look at his coaching attributes. But we’ll leave these aside for our list, and focus primarily on the three attributes mentioned above.

Also, if you’d like for your assistant manager to help you with tactics or to set up opposition instructions, then include Tactical Knowledge and Judging Player Ability to your search.

Lastly, consider including Adaptability if he is not from the nation you’re currently managing.

There is a bunch of superb Assistant Managers in FM 2019, but not many will be willing to sign for your club at the start of the game.

This unwillingness can be due to that they just signed for a club or a nation and are unwilling to make an immediate move to other position, or simple they're not interested in your low rep club.

Criteria I used when searching for best FM19 assistant managers;

  • Must have potential ability 150 or higher
  • Must be interested in assistant manager position as his next job
  • Must not be a manager at any club/nation
