This file will add new injuries to Football Manager, making it more realistic

A FM21 mod to increase the realism of FM2021. This file has been created by majesticeternity.

Realistic injuries

With 114 injuries in FM, on the surface there seems to be quite a bit of depth. But looking closer, many things are unrealistic. Blisters are treated by physios, pulled wrist ligaments take only a day or two to recover from, injury amount is only 70% of real life, and goalkeepers are invincible.

This file will add a whole new layer of depth and strategy to your game! You will need to:

  • Rotate your squad better
  • Plan training to prevent injuries
  • Sign quality backup Goalkeepers
  • Use the Medical Center to watch high risk players
  • Hire the best physios
  • Balance training, recovery, rehab, and rest
  • Budget for injuries requiring a doctor or surgery
  • Avoid signing players with high injury risk
  • Keep a good second 11 for rotation
  • Have a full sub bench for in match injuries
  • and more...
