A list with the best wonderkid wing-backs in Football Manager 2021.

Playing with three at the back is becoming more and more popular in recent years. Antonio Conte developed a smashing 3-5-2 formation at Juventus and later on continued that formation when managing Chelsea and now at Internazionale. Formations like that used to be considered as defensive, but Conte's tactics have proven that they could also be very attacking and earn you loads of goals.

One of the key positions in a 3-5-2 formation is the Wing-Back. The Wing-back must fulfil all the attacking and defensive duties of wingers and full-backs. While on attack he must be able to run out and outplay his opponent, in the midfield he is instructed to participate in putting on pressure and winning the ball back and in defence he is instructed to close down wingers and win the ball back.

Players who have been used at the position of Wing-Back has also changed in recent years. The wide defenders used to be defensive minded and later on the attacking full-backs emerged with players like Dani Alves and Marcelo. These days managers also like to use 'wingers' as Wing-backs. A good example is former Chelsea winger Victor Moses. As a winger he wasn't good enough to play regularly, but as a tireless Wing-Back he was one of the key players in Conte's title winning campaign at the Blues.

In Football Manager the Wing-Back has also evolved. From one single role, the position now has multiple roles, each with their own unique skill set. On this list you will find the best left and right wing-backs in Football Manager 2021.
