FM21 wonderkids explained: what are wonderkids and how do you find them?

Now, you're probably thinking: names that “could” end up as the best players? What does this mean? Well, Football Manager 2021, like previous entries, shows you how good every player is in the game thanks to attribute ratings. These cover technical, mental and physical abilities, such as how good a player is at passing the ball or if they show leadership in the team.

However, there's also a hidden ratings system in the game's database. At the beginning, each player is given a “current ability” rating, which is a score out of 200. But, more importantly, there's also a “potential ability” rating. Should a player receive the right squad and staff support, run of results and other variables, they could achieve a rating much higher than the one assigned to them at the beginning of the season.

Once again, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the highest rated players in the game. However, Kylian Mbappe's potential score of 196 matches Ronaldo's, so it could prove worthwhile to try and snatch him early on (provided you have an endless pit of resources of course). But there are some gems that could end up being better buys, such as Pipi and Ajax's Naci Unuvar, particularly as their ratings aren't high at the start of the season. It looks like the first thing you'll be doing is requesting a bigger transfer budget from the board.

Football Manager 2021 (officially abbreviated as FM21) is a football-managementsimulationvideo game developed by Sports Interactive and published by Sega. It was released worldwide for iOS, Android, macOS and Windows on 24 November 2020.[1] The streamlined version of the game titled Football Manager 2021 Touch was released on 1 December 2020 for the same platforms, and for Nintendo Switch on 15 December 2020. The similar version titled Xbox Edition was released on 1 December 2020 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Windows 10 via the Microsoft Store. It will be the first game in the series to appear on an Xbox platform since Football Manager 2008.[2]


FM21's headline features cover a number of key areas of the game including the interaction system, matchday experience and the recruitment module. There are new communication methods, including gestures, and new interaction options between the manager, their players and the media. There are new presentation elements before, during and after a match and an overhaul to the match engine AI. Expected goals (or xG) makes its debut in the series as part of a wider suite of data analysis changes through an xG model, built by Sports Interactive in partnership with SciSports. Trophy presentations have been revamped too.[3]

Managers can also take more control of their club's recruitment strategy with a new recruitment meeting.[4]

Playable leagues[edit]

FM21 features 117 leagues from 52 nations across five continents: Africa, Asia (including Australia), Europe, North America and South America.[5][6] Coverage is heavily slanted towards European teams, with 34 of its 51 constituent countries having playable leagues, while South Africa is the only country of Africa's total 54 that is covered.


29 leagues (across 14 countries) were fully licensed for the game, as was KNVB ('Team Holland'). Italy's Serie A has licences for all its clubs except Juventus, who appear as Zebre once again. The German national team was not licensed, however, having been reintroduced in FM20.

Xbox edition[edit]

Football manager switch

Football Manager 2021 saw the series return to Xbox consoles for the first time since 2007.[7] Modelled on Football Manager Touch, the game's user interface has been designed to work with the Xbox controller and the game will take advantage of Microsoft's Smart Delivery and Play Anywhere technology to enable cross-play across Xbox One, Xbox One X S, Xbox Series X S and FM21 Xbox on Windows 10.[8]

FM21 Xbox will be enhanced on Xbox Series X S with matches displaying in native 4K and up to 10 nations can be loaded up at any one time.[9]

The game released on 1 December 2020.[10]


Football Manager 2021 Mobile introduced three new nations to the game: Argentina, Canada and Mexico, which took the total number of playable nations to 24.[11]

Tactical templates have been introduced for the first time that replicate the most popular styles of play in world football and managers can now develop their own set-piece routines. The Dynamics module has new displays of social groups, player relationships and squad hierarchy while the way that human managers can communicate with their players has been redefined.[12]

Other features include the ability to set up links with feeder clubs and arrange pre-season friendlies.

FM21 Mobile was released on iOS and Android on 24 November 2020.[13]

Football Manager 2021 Touch[edit]

Football Manager 2021 Touch encompasses many of the new additions from the Windows and macOS versions. The interaction system, matchday experience and new data analysis elements are included in the game.
