Football Manager 2021 Villarreal tactic and team guide. Club culture and board requirements, tactics, key players, youth prospects and potential transfers in FM21.


Here is the FM21 team guide of the Villarreal squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any virtual manager can use.

About Villarreal CF


Villarreal are a professional football club that ply their trade in the La Liga. Founded in 1923, Villarreal spent much of their history in the lower divisions, only making their La Liga debut in 1998. 

Villarreal gained stability in the 21st century and made their first UCL appearance in 2005 even reaching the semi final of the competition. They finished runner up in the league in the 2007-2008 season but after a brief successful period, full into relegation in 2012. 

However, the club quickly bounced back and have slowly established themselves as a small but very stable club in La Liga.

Board Requirements  


Villarreal narrowly missed out on a UCL Spot but have qualified for the Europa League by virtue of finishing 5th in the league. The board requirements once you take over will be,

FM21 Villarreal Board Requirements

    1. A top 6 league finish (automatic qualification to the Europa League)
    2. Reach the quarterfinals of the Europa League.
    3. Reach the final of the Spanish cup.

You will not be judged on any particular style of football as long as you are able to achieve the board’s goals. However, you will be required to sign very young players to use for the future and develop players using the club’s youth system.

Villarreal have decent training and youth facilities, their youth recruitment is also adequate for their level, but managers will definitely want to improve all of this inorder to compete for bigger things with the club.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Villarreal are a team that employ a good patient build up play but can up the tempo if and when needed. A vertical tiki taka is the best tactic to go with for Villarreal.

A 4-3-3 is how Villarreal line-up in real life and is probably the best suited formation to the available squad of players. This also helps them to keep the midfield tight and allow the fullbacks to overlap and create chances. The formation will also work when playing on the counter attacks where the central midfielders will become more defensive and compact.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-3-3 formation is as follows,

FM21 Villarreal Tactics



Sergio Asenjo as the sweeper-keeper

Pau Torres & Juan Foyth as the 2 central defenders. Both are comfortable on the ball and can be played as ball-playing defenders.

Mario Gaspar & Alberto Moreno as the 2 attacking full backs/wing backs. They need to have increased crossing instructions.

Dani Parejo as the deep playmaker in defence duty, Moi Gomez as a Mezzala on support duty and Francis Coquelin as a box to box midfielder make up the 3 man midfield.

Alfonso Pedraza & Samuel Chukweuze as the 2 wide midfielders, the former as an inside forward and the latter as an inverted winger.

Paco Alcacer as a lone striker in a Pressing forward role.

Even though you need not tinker with the formation much there is the option of playing 4-2-3-1 or a 4-4-2 if you wish to change things around.

Key Players


1. Dani Parejo


FM21 Dani Parejo

The former Valencia captain is a vastly experienced midfielder who exudes quality in terms of his passing and ability to create chances. His performances will help shape your season.

2. Pau Torres


FM21 Pau Torres

Despite being just 23, Pau Torres as good experience and still has room to grow. He is excellent from set pieces and can be an important source or goals from corners and freekicks.

3. Francis Coquelin


FM21 Francis Coquelin

The central midfielder is a menacing presence for opponents and will never back out of a duel. He has the ability to destroy attacks before they take shape and will be a key presence on the pitch.

Weaknesses


1. The backup and fringe players in the squad are a huge drop from the first team’s quality and injuries to key players could be disastrous.

2. Goals may not be easy to come by and managers will have to be at their creative best to unlock defences.

3. You will be helpless if bigger clubs want to poach away your talent and could leave you with gaping holes in the squad.

Potential Transfers (in)


Villarreal’s squad is not the best in terms of depth. Some of the names that could help are,

· Pietro Pellegri
· Rober

Potential Transfers (Out)


These players may be surplus to requirements at the club or may not be of the expected quality.

· Ruben Pena
· Jaume Costa

Youth Prospects


There are a few exciting young prospects in the ranks or on loan who have the potential to be some of the best players in the league. A few examples are,

1. Samuel Chukwueze


FM21 Samuel Chukwueze

Chukweuze is already a key player for Villarreal and will only improve in the future given more game time.

2. Fernando Nino


FM21 Fernando Nino

Nino currently plays for Villarreal C. He has the ability to be a superstar for the club in the future.

3. Yeremy Pino


FM21 Yeremy Pino

Currently playing for the Villarreal u19s, Pino is an extremely versatile player. He is a very determined individual who aspires to reach the very top and can be a top player for the club in the future.
