Unlocking Young Talent in Football Manager 2024: A Comprehensive Guide to Scouting, Training, and Nurturing Future Stars


Welcome to the ultimate journey of developing youth players in Football Manager 2024 – a path that leads to creating a team brimming with wonderkids and future football legends. This guide is your blueprint for nurturing, guiding, and transforming talented youngsters into the superstars of tomorrow in your FM24 save. 

In this guide, we will discuss how to develop young players in FM24, including scouting, training, mentoring, and giving them playing time.

1. Building a Strong Scouting Network


Maximizing Youth Intake

The first step in developing young players in Football Manager 2024 involves a meticulous and strategic approach to scouting. Begin by recruiting expert scouts who excel in 'Judging Player Ability' and 'Judging Player Potential', as their expertise is crucial for identifying potential wonderkids. It's important to diversify your scouting network geographically to uncover hidden gems from all corners of the globe. This global reach is essential in ensuring a varied and rich talent pool. Furthermore, strategically assign your scouts to regions renowned for producing top young talents, such as South America or Western Europe, and regularly update these assignments to maintain a constant flow of potential stars.

In FM24's extensive scouting system, focus on discovering young players with high potential, rather than solely those who are already performing well. Seek out players with attributes critical for their specific position, like pace and dribbling for wingers, passing and vision for midfielders, and finishing and composure for strikers. Additionally, consider the personality of the players; those with traits like 'determined,' 'professional,' and 'ambitious' are more likely to develop positively and contribute to the team's morale. This holistic approach to scouting in FM24 is key to building a successful and dynamic team.

Enhancing your club's youth recruitment network is a pivotal strategy in attracting top young talents with high potential in Football Manager. This expansive network is fundamental for scouting and securing promising youngsters who can be nurtured into future stars. 

Head of Youth Development

Equally crucial is the role of the Head of Youth Development, who should possess exceptional skills in 'Working with Youngsters' and 'Judging Player Potential', coupled with a strong and influential personality. Their expertise and attributes significantly impact the quality and caliber of the youth intake. To strategically acquire players for specific positions and roles, a combination of a wider recruitment network and a proficient Head of Youth Development is essential. This synergy not only broadens your scouting horizon but also increases the likelihood of discovering and developing players who fit perfectly into your team's preferred playing style and tactical framework.

2. Training


Once you have identified young players with high potential, it is important to focus on their training. In FM24, players can be trained in several different areas, including general training, individual training, and mentoring.

Before we delve into the types of training and how to set them up for the best development of young players, you must have the right people, the coaches, who will help you in developing young players into top athletes, and for that, you will need top-notch training conditions.

Youth Development Infrastructure: Facilities and Coaching


Upgrading your club's youth facilities is a critical step in creating an optimal training environment for young talents in Football Manager. Utilize the board request option to advocate for these enhancements, as improved facilities play a vital role in player development. However, it's important to consider these upgrades as a long-term investment, aligning them with the club's financial health. 

Youth Development Infrastructure: Facilities and Coaching

Concurrently, prioritize employing top-notch youth coaches who excel in 'Working with Youngsters', discipline, and motivation. Pay attention to their specific coaching skills, whether it be attacking, defending, or fitness, to ensure a comprehensive development approach. Aim for a balanced coaching team, with a diverse range of specializations, to cover all aspects of player development effectively. This dual focus on both facilities and coaching expertise lays a robust foundation for nurturing future stars.

Now that we have secured the best conditions and coaches for our young players, let's take a look at the types of training we have and how to set them up for the best development of young players.

General Training


FM23 General Training

General training is used to improve a player's overall attributes. It is important to set up the general training to focus on areas that are important for the player's position. For example, if you have a young winger with good pace and dribbling, you should set the general training to focus on improving their crossing and finishing.

Individual Training


Individual Training

Individual training is used to improve specific attributes for a player. It is important to identify areas where the player needs improvement and set up the individual training accordingly. For example, if you have a young defender who needs to work on their heading, you should set up 'Aerial' individual training to focus on improving their heading.

Mentoring


FM23 Mentoring

Mentoring is another important aspect of developing young players in FM24. Mentoring involves pairing a young player with a more experienced player who has a positive personality. The experienced player will act as a mentor to the younger players and help them develop their skills and improve their personality.

When selecting a mentor for a young player, it is important to choose a player who has a positive personality and high attributes in areas that are important for the young player's position. For example, if you have a young midfielder who needs to work on their passing, you should choose an experienced midfielder with good passing attributes.

3. Playing Time


FM23 Playing Time

Finally, it is important to give young players playing time in order to develop their skills and improve their attributes. It can be tempting to rely on more experienced players, but giving young players playing time is crucial to their development.

When selecting which young players to give playing time to, it is important to consider their attributes and the areas where they need improvement. For example, if you have a young striker with good finishing but poor composure, you should give them playing time in order to help them improve their composure in front of goal.

It is also important to manage young players' playing time carefully in order to avoid burning them out or causing them to become unhappy. If a young player is not performing well or is struggling with their confidence, it may be necessary to give them a break and allow them to regain their form.

Strategic Player Loans


Loaning out young players in Football Manager 2024 is a pivotal strategy for their development, offering them the crucial real-game experience that they might not yet receive at their parent club.

Strategic Player Loans

When considering loan options, it's essential to thoroughly assess the player's current abilities and readiness for such a move. This assessment should be done in consultation with your coaching staff, who can provide valuable insights into the appropriate level of competition for each player. The goal is to match young talents with clubs where they are likely to play regularly, avoiding scenarios where they might end up on the bench, which could stall their development.

Tailoring loan agreements is also a key aspect of this strategy. When negotiating these agreements, prioritize clauses that maximize playing time, such as 'mandatory playing time' clauses, which compel the loaning club to give your player sufficient game time. Additionally, it's vital to keep track of the player's progress while they are away. Regular scouting reports and performance reviews are necessary to monitor their development, providing insights into their game time, performance levels, and areas of improvement. This approach ensures that the loan period is utilized effectively, allowing young players to develop optimally and gain valuable experience that contributes to their overall growth as future stars for your club.

Conclusion


In conclusion, developing young players is an important aspect of managing a football team in FM24. Scouting for players with high potential, focusing on their training, mentoring them with more experienced players, and giving them playing time are all crucial to their development. With the right approach, young players can become the foundation of a successful team for years to come. It is important to be patient with young players and to manage their development carefully, taking into account their attributes, personality, and confidence levels.

In addition, it is important to have a long-term vision for the team and to build for the future. This means not only developing young players but also having a plan for how they will fit into the team in the long term. For example, if you have a young striker with high potential, you may need to adjust the team's tactics and playing style in order to take advantage of their skills.

Finally, it is important to remember that developing young players is not a guarantee of success. There will always be a degree of uncertainty and risk involved in developing young players, and not all players will reach their potential. However, with the right approach and a bit of luck, developing young players can be a rewarding and successful strategy in FM24.
