Why is Player X better rated than Player Y?

The player overall rating is a good guide to player ability, but it is a summary of all relevant attributes, and does always indicate how well certain players stack up against one another. We always recommend you check the individual attributes of a player to judge whether they’re what you want to sign and whether they’re suited to the position you’ve put them in.

Certain (particularly young) players may also have lower than expected stats, but have a large 'potential' (hidden) attribute, meaning that they can improve immensely over time.

Who should I sign?!

Here are three of the Champ Man teams young favourites from our own playthroughs:
  • Olivier Ntcham (Man City, loaned to Genoa). All round midfielder. Performs much better than his profile suggests.
  • Hector Bellerin (Arsenal first team right back, holds the informal sprint record for the club)
  • Ezequiel Ponce (just joined Roma, already good reputation as a finisher from Argentine league)
