FM17 TEAM OF THE SEASON: DM

After we have completed our defense, it is time to continue our journey for the Football Manager 2017 Team of the Season on the midfield. We have 3 positions to divide and we are starting at the position of Defensive Midfielder. The DM has evolved from a ball-winner only to a multi functional footballing machine, that can both win balls but also pass a ball. In this election we selected three of our favourite defensive midfielders from Football Manager 2017.

Thiago Maia

Franck Kessie

Andres Cubas

  • 7%

AND THE WINNER IS…

This position could have the most clear winner of all position. With a whopping 73% of the votes, Thiago Maia was selected as the most favored defensive midfielder in FM17. The young Brazilian first caught our eye in FM16 and he continued his amazing potential in FM17. This summer Maia made a transfer towards French outfit Lille and we are very excited to see his qualities in FM18. Franck Kessie finished in second place with 20% of the votes, while Andres Cubas only picked up 7%. The young Argentinian is an amazing ball-winner, but just didn’t have the same popularity as Thiago Maia.
