FM21 Valencia CF Vertical 4-2-4 Tiki-Taka Tactic | Team Guide

FM21 Valencia CF Vertical 4-2-4 Tiki-Taka Tactic | Team Guide

Football Manager 2021 Valencia 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 Valencia squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM21 manager can use.

About the club


Valencia are a professional football club that ply their trade in the La Liga. They are the 3rd most supported team in La Liga behind the 2 giants. 

Valencia are a fairly consistent team regularly qualifying for the champion’s league. They were back to back finalists of the UEFA Champion’s league in 2000 & 2001 eventually losing both games.

Board Requirements  


Valencia are in the middle of financial crisis and were forced to sell some of their better players. They finished a disappointing 9th and failure to secure European qualification. Their board requirements once you take over will be,

FM21 Valencia Board Requirements

1. A top 6 league finish (automatic qualification to the Europa League)

As you can see, the board requirements are completely underwhelming compared to previous seasons and the board have no other specific requests other than to sign u23 players for the future.

Valencia are blessed with excellent training facilities and a very good youth set up. The club regularly provides International players to Spain and most of the other foreign players are also capped Internationals.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Valencia usually employ a vertical tiki taka style of football with constant movement of the ball. However, against superior attacks they are also known to go with a fluid counter attacking style of football with the emphasis on crosses from wide areas.

A traditional 4-2-2-2 is what works best for this Valencia squad enabling all the key players to play in their favoured positions. This formation also helps them to switch up tactics depending on how the game is being played and can dictate the tempo of the game.

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

FM21 Valencia tactics



Jasper Cillesson as a regular keeper

Eliaquim Mangala & Gabriel Paulista as the 2 central defenders.

Thierry Correa & Jose Gaya as a fullback and wing back respectively. Advanced crossing instructions to Gaya to make use of his high crossing attribute.

Daniel Wass as the deep playmaker on defense duty, Carlos Soler as a supporting Mezzala.

Gonzalo Guedes & Jason as the 2 wide men with Guedes operating as an inverted winger & Jason as a winger.

Kevin Gameiro in a deep lying striker’s role and Maxi Gomez as the pressing forward.

The bench is also considerably weaker compared to previous seasons and is underwhelming to say the least, so there is not much room for changes.

Key Players


1. Gonzalo Guedes


FM21 Gonzalo Guedes

The versatile Portuguese attacking midfielder is crucial in achieving the season’s goals for Valencia and will also pop up with crucial goals in many games.

2. Jose Gaya


FM21 Jose Gaya

Gaya is a highly sought after wing-back and his crossing delivery is second to none. His fitness is crucial in getting favourable results.

3. Daniel Wass


FM21 Daniel Wass

The 31-year-old Danish player is a natural at several positions and fixes several holes in the squad. He is also a handy player who is effective in almost all of these roles and will be one of your most important players.

4. Maxi Gomez


FM21 Maxi Gomez

The Uruguayan target man is clinical in front of the goal. He is also lethal in the air making him a threat from crosses and set-piece situations.

Weaknesses


1. There is a lot of chaos at the club with several top players leaving and the club is in a financial crisis. It will take more than 1 season to stabilize and get the club to where they were previously.

2. The quality of backups is definitely not upto standard and will definitely need improvements

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)


These players will be welcome additions to the Valencia squad

· Inigo Martinez

· Iker Munian

· Mario Mandzukic

Potential Transfers (Out)


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

· Eliaquim Mangala

· Gabriel Paulista

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. Pedro Aleman


FM21 Pedro Aleman

The central midfielder currently plays for Valencia B and can easily slot into the squad in a couple of seasons. He will definitely be a useful addition to the squad and will improve quite a lot in the future.

2. Yunus Musah


FM21 Yunus Musah

With England & the USA are trying to convince Musah to play for their respective countries, Musah is another player who got away from Arsenal. He has very high potential, is extremely versatile and will become one of the best players in the squad.

3. Cristhian Mosquera


FM21 Christhian Mosquera

The centre back is only 16 and could already be a backup for several lower-tier sides. He is only likely to improve in the future and could become a key player for the club under the right mentorship.

Summary


To Summarize, Valencia who were once a solid club are on the brink of collapse. It will definitely take a shrewd manager and a lot of luck to make them compete with the elite clubs of Spanish and European football once again. Are you up for this challenge?
