5 Star Training

To give your players the best training, you will have to sign the best coaches. Sounds logical doesn't it? But how do you find the best coaches in Football Manager? In this guide we will explain the basic formula to calculate and find the best coaches for each and individual category in Football Manager. This is called the 5 star training method.

 

Coaches in Football Manager receive an amount of stars for a training category. Five stars is the best you can get, One is the worst. Although it shows the quality of that particular category, it also shows the Workload for a coach for a category.

 

Having a high Workload for a category can result in having wining players about the quality of the training. So remember; if there is ever a player that is concerned about the Team Training, check the Workload in the Training Section of FM.

 

There are 9 Categories you can train in Football Manager: 

  • Strength
  • Aerobic
  • Tactics
  • Ball Control
  • Defending
  • Attacking
  • Shooting
  • Shot Stopping
  • Handling

 

Calculating the Stars

In an ideal situation, you would have a specialist Coach for each of the nine different categories. To reach the maximum stars for each category, a Coach will need different attributes, but three Attributes are the same for every Coach you need. These are:

  • Determination
  • Discipline
  • Motivation

 

From now on we will refer to these attributes as DDM.

 

Then using the following formula, you can calculate the amount of stars a coach will get:

 

Needed Attribut * X + DDM * X

 

Looks difficult, but believe us when we say this is very easy to apply in your game. We will discuss every category to show you how easy it is.

 

FITNESS TRAINING

 

Strength

The formula is: Fitness Training * 9 + DDM * 2

If the outcome is 270 or higher; the coach will get 5 stars.

 

240-269 = 4.5 stars
210-239 = 4 stars
180-209 = 3.5 stars
150-179 = 3 stars
120-149 = 2.5 stars
90-119 = 2 stars
60-89 = 1.5 stars
30-59 = 1 star
0-29 = 0.5 star

 

Aerobic

The formula is: Fitness Training * 9 + DDM * 2

If the outcome is 270 or higher; the coach will get 5 stars.

 

240-269 = 4.5 stars
210-239 = 4 stars
180-209 = 3.5 stars
150-179 = 3 stars
120-149 = 2.5 stars
90-119 = 2 stars
60-89 = 1.5 stars
30-59 = 1 star
0-29 = 0.5 star

 

GOALKEEPING TRAINING

 

Shot Stopping

The Formula is: Goalkeepers * 8 + Tactical * 3 + DDM * 3

If the outcome is 360 or higher, the coach will get 5 stars

 

320-359 = 4.5 stars
280-319 = 4 stars
240-279 = 3.5 stars
200-239 = 3 stars
160-199 = 2.5 stars
120-159 = 2 stars
80-119 = 1.5 stars
40-79 = 1 star
0-39 = 0.5 star

 

Handling

The Formula is: Goalkeepers * 8 + Technique * 3 + DDM * 3

If the outcome is 360 or higher, the coach will get 5 stars

 

320-359 = 4.5 stars
280-319 = 4 stars
240-279 = 3.5 stars
200-239 = 3 stars
160-199 = 2.5 stars
120-159 = 2 stars
80-119 = 1.5 stars
40-79 = 1 star
0-39 = 0.5 star

 

GENERAL TRAINING

 

Tactics

The Formula is: Tactical * 2 + DDM

If the outcome is 90 or higher, the coach will get 5 stars

 

80-89 = 4.5 stars
70-79 = 4 stars
60-69 = 3.5 stars
50-59 = 3 stars
40-49 = 2.5 stars
30-39 = 2 stars
20-29 = 1.5 stars
10-19 = 1 star
0-9 = 0.5 star

 

Ball Control

The Formula is: Technique * 6 + Mental * 3 + DDM * 2

If the outcome is 270 or higher, the coach will get 5 stars

 

240-269 = 4.5 stars
210-239 = 4 stars
180-209 = 3.5 stars
150-179 = 3 stars
120-149 = 2.5 stars
90-119 = 2 stars
60-89 = 1.5 stars
30-59 = 1 star
0-29 = 0.5 star

 

Defending

The Formula is: Defending * 8 + Tactical * 3 + DDM * 3

If the outcome is 360 or higher, the coach will get 5 stars

 

320-359 = 4.5 stars
280-319 = 4 stars
240-279 = 3.5 stars
200-239 = 3 stars
160-199 = 2.5 stars
120-159 = 2 stars
80-119 = 1.5 stars
40-79 = 1 star
0-39 = 0.5 star

 

Attacking

The Formula is: Attacking * 6 + Tactical * 3 + DDM * 2

If the outcome is 270 or higher, the coach will get 5 stars

 

240-269 = 4.5 stars
210-239 = 4 stars
180-209 = 3.5 stars
150-179 = 3 stars
120-149 = 2.5 stars
90-119 = 2 stars
60-89 = 1.5 stars
30-59 = 1 star
0-29 = 0.5 star

 

Shooting

The Formula is: Technique * 6 + Attacking * 3 + DDM * 2

If the outcome is 270 or higher, the coach will get 5 stars

 

240-269 = 4.5 stars
210-239 = 4 stars
180-209 = 3.5 stars
150-179 = 3 stars
120-149 = 2.5 stars
90-119 = 2 stars
60-89 = 1.5 stars
30-59 = 1 star
0-29 = 0.5 star


Now lets explain it through an example.

 

You have the following coach under contract:

You would like to know how many stars he will receive for his best attribute: Defending. As you have learned before, you will need the following formula:

 

Defense * 8 + Tactical * 3 + DDM (you add these three attributes into one number) * 3

 

The result will be:

15 * 8 + 9 * 3 + 35 * 3 = 120 + 27 + 105 = 252 in total

 

If we the take a look at the schedule for the Defending Training Category, we see that: 240-279 = 3.5 star. That means that this coach will get a maximum of 3.5 stars for this category.
