Whilst playing Football Manager 2024, it's important to appoint a good right-hand man in the form of an Assistant Manager.

Your Assistant Manager will help out with your coaching, offer suggestions during matches, manage any games you have to miss, and even do your team talks when needed in the game.

They can also go to any press conferences you don’t fancy. In truth, your Assistant Manager is going to pick up anything you don’t really want to do - as well as helping with tactics and coaching.

What stats are important for an Assistant Manager in FM24?

The most important things to look out for when bringing in an Assistant are Judging Player Ability/Potential, Motivation, and People Management, as well as good tactical knowledge so they make good suggestions during the game and help with coaching.

You'll also want to make sure they have a preferred style similar to your own, otherwise, their suggestions will not be in line with how you want to play.

Another thing to keep in mind when you hire an Assistant is to check what language they speak and if they can speak the language of the team you're managing. If you can't speak the language, this will make it much easier to get your ideas across, if your assistant can.
