1. Everton FC
Everton could really be an interesting team to manage as they signed the likes of Allan, Abdoulaye Doucouré and James Rodríguez this summer to Strengthen the side. In addition, Everton haven't won a trophy since 1995 when they had their last FA Cup glory. The challenge will be to push for the top six and finally win a trophy for The Toffees.
2. A.F.C. Bournemouth
Following A.F.C. Bournemouth's relegation from the Premier League and the departure of key players, Callum Wilson, Aaron Ramsdale and Nathan Aké, the way back to the Premier League will not be easy and definitely will be a challenging save.
3. AS Monaco
AS Monaco finished last season in 9th place in League 1 as they could not find fine form throughout the season.

5. Borussia Mönchengladbach
With a strong season last year and qualifying for the Champions League, the young German side are a great save for someone who would like to train a young and talented team that will play in the Champions League next season. With 5 Bundesliga titles in their trophy cabinet, Bor. M'gladbach will aim to win the title yet again in the near future.
6. VfB Stuttgart
The German giants are back in the Bundesliga and the challenge is very clear, stay in the Bundesliga. VfB Stuttgart were once one of the best teams in Germany, but have fallen through the years. VfB Stuttgart are known for their superb academy and producing some of the elite players in the world right now (Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Timo Werner). The team is mixed with young and experienced players so it will be a very fun save trying to get VfB Stuttgart back on top.
7. SSC Napoli
With no European football next season and with a recorded singing, Victor Osimhen, the side from south Italy will aim to get back to winning ways and Champions League football. SSC Napoli are a great save for new players who are looking for a team to learn to game and to challenge them self.

With some key players what are still at the club (Andrea Belotti, Nicolas N'Koulou and Salvatore Sirigu), a qualification for European football does not seem to be too far to achieve. Torino FC were 7 times champions of Italy, and the challenge now is definitely to get back to dominate the city of Torino and Italy yet again.
9. Sporting CP
The Portuguese side has one of the greatest academies in the world and a save with Sporting CP is a must, with domestic rivalry against Benfica and FC Porto, the league is very challenging and tight. Sporting CP will have no Champions League football but the Europa League is a trophy to try and win.
