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


Here is a brief analysis of the Gladbach squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM manager can use.

About the club


Borussia Monchengladbach are a professional football club that ply their trade in the Bundesliga. The club was joined Bundesliga in 1965 and found a lot of success in the 1970s. 

Gladbach have won 5 Bundesliga titles, 2 DFB Pokals & 2 UEFA Cups. The club faced a tumultuous time in the late ’90s and were eventually relegated in 1999. However, they have done well since and have managed to stay in the top flight after their promotion.

Board Requirement


The club had a decent showing in the 2019-2020 season and finished 4th in the league table.

Gladbach are in the Champion’s League this season. The minimum requirements of the board will be,

FM21 Borussia Monchengladbach Board Requirements

1. Make the top 6 of the Bundesliga (Automatic Qualification into the Europa League)

2. Make the QF of the DFB Pokal.

3. Be competitive in the Champion’s League.

There will be no particular demands from the board in terms of how you want to play as long as you achieve the results. The board however prefers you sign young players placed in Germany and develop players using the club’s youth system.

Gladbach have good training facilities and a good youth system. However, you will need to work on improving these after you stabilize your position at the club.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Gladbach are a team that generally like to play on the counter. They like playing a fast tempo game, so a vertical tiki-taka is the best-suited system.

A 4-1-2-1-2 diamond is probably the best-suited formation to the available squad of players. This enables the players to play to their strengths.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation is as follows,

FM21 Borussia Monchengladbach Tactics



Yann Sommer as a sweeper keeper.

Mathias Ginter & Nicolo Elvedi as the 2 centre backs playing as Ball Playing Defenders.

Valentino Lazzaro and Ramy Benseabaini as the 2 full backs. Increased crossing instructions are recommended.

Denis Zakaria, Christoph Kramer & Florian Neuhaus as the 3 central midfielders with Kramer playing as the defensive midfielder, Zakaria as a box to box midfielder and Neuhaus as a Mezzala.

Hannes Wolf as the attacking midfielder.

Marcus Thuram & Alasanne Plea as the 2 strikers with the former as a deep-lying forward and the latter as an Advanced Forward.

Alternatively, you can go with a 4-3-1-2 or a 4-3-3 by playing Embolo and Thuram out wide.

Weaknesses


1. The quality of backups in the squad may not be up to the quality and could prove fatal if your squad is affected by injuries.

2. You run the risk of some talents being poached by other clubs especially in search of higher wages.

3. Set pieces are a weakness for this Gladbach side with them struggling at both the attacking and defensive ends.

Potential Transfers (in)


Monchengladbach are not the best squad in the league with respect to squad depth, these players could be welcome additions to the side.

· Xhedran Shaqiri

· Munas Dabbur

Potential Transfers (Out)


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

· Michael Lang

· Tony Jantschke

Youth Prospects


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

1. Torben Musel


FM21 Torben Musel

The 21-year-old striker currently plays for the B side and can soon work his way into the main team. He has the potential to lead the line for the club in the future.

2. Louis Beyer


FM21 Louis Beyer

The 20-year-old full-back is already good enough to be a backup in the Gladbach squad and will only get better in the future. His versatility is an added positive.
