This article will explain an easy way to find wonderkids in Football Manager 2023 and older versions of the game.

Spotting wonderkids in your save is one of the greatest feelings in Football Manager. We all love to sign that talented youngster and see him develop into a world-class and leading player. Finding these wonderkids is the hardest part of your job and your scouting team.

There are several ways to find wonderkids in your save:

  1. Use a wonderkids shortlist like the FMI Player Database
  2. Create an awesome scouting network
  3. Use media description in Player Search

We will be discussing option number three as this is an easy way to spot new wonderkids in your save, especially when you have a longer save and most known wonderkids have already aged.
