Players you do NOT want to sign

Have you ever signed a player for millions who then gets injured and never plays? It could be one of the biggest frustrations on Football Manager. Off course; sometimes this could be just bad luck, but some players have the tendency to get injured more often than others. That are the players who have a high Injury Proneness. 



Injury Proneness is a hidden attribute on Football Manager and can only be spotted by scouting a player or looking at a players Pros and Cons report card. The attributes can vary like all the other attributes between 1 and 20. In this special case, having a low value is positive, a high value is negative. The higher the value, the higher the chance for a player to pick up an injury.



The list you see below contains a series of players with a HIGH Injury Proneness value of at least 18. That makes the players on the list a big risk when signing for either a large fee or a long-term high paid contract. Our advice would be; avoid signing these players, because they will frustrate you by picking up injury after injury. And if you are managing the club they play for; sell them as quickly as possible!
