Team Role

Team Role indicates the way in which the player will contribute to the team. When a player has a designated Team Role, it benefits not only their performance but that of their team-mates.

It is recommended in Master League to build your team around players with defined Team Roles as that will help bring out your team's full potential through stronger team development.

Each player has a personality, which is made from one trait from the following four categories: Team Player or Lone Wolf, Passion or Composure, Technique or Physical, Instinct or Insight. A player's personality can change depending on the team's Playing Style, training and how a match plays out.
