PLAYERS YOU SHOULD AVOID SIGNING

Have you ever signed a player for millions who then spends most of his time recovering from an injury? It could be one of the biggest frustrations on Football Manager. Sometimes this is just bad luck, but some players have the tendency to get injured more often than others. These are players who have a high Injury Proneness.

WHAT IS INJURY PRONENESS?

Injury Proneness is a hidden attribute in Football Manager and can only be spotted by scouting a player or looking at a players assistant or coach report. Injury proneness can vary like all the other attributes between 1 and 20. Big difference is that this attribute needs to be as low as possible, whilst normally you would be looking for high attributes. How higher the attribute, the higher the chance for a player to pick up an injury.

THE LIST

The list below shows players that have a HIGH Injury Proneness of at least 18. That makes these players a big risk when you want to sign them.

Our advice would be; avoid these players. They will frustrate you and will probably spend most of the season on the table of your physio. If a player on this list is on your payroll; sell, sell and sell! Don’t wait or hope that the players’ fortunes will change. Don’t take the chance and get rid of them while you can!
