How To Improve Your Players
Naturally, your objective should be to replace your weaker players with stronger ones, but once you’ve substantially improved your lineup by signing those real-life soccer stars, you’ll want to make them better. (You may also want to make the most of the less talented players you have while they’re still part of your club, even if it’s just for a short period of time.)
First off, all players who are part of your starting lineup or substitutes that get to complete a match will earn experience points, thus leveling them up, improving their individual attributes, and in many cases, improving their overall rating. But there’s another way to level up your players aside from the organic way, and that’s by converting players you no longer need into trainers.
In order to do this, go to the Club House menu, then tap on the My Team option. Once there, tap on Trainers, and if you haven’t added anyone yet, you’ll need to tap on Convert Players. This will show you a list of all the players you currently have on your team; you can sort them based on Position and Overall Rating, among other choices. We suggest sorting based on these two mainly, as this will give you the best chance of weeding out the lower-rated players and converting them into Trainers — as the game will warn you, these players will be “lost” forever and cannot be re-converted into regular players!
These Trainers can be used as sacrifice material in order to manually improve your other, better players, and as far as their base effect is concerned, this will depend on their overall rating/level at the time you converted them. However, there are other factors that could increase or decrease their impact, mainly how close their position is to the position of the target player.
For example, a Center Forward trainer won’t have as much of an impact as a Goalkeeper if you’re trying to train one of the other keepers on your roster. That means you shouldn’t select those Trainers willy-nilly — choose the ones who will have the biggest and best effect on the target player in order to take full advantage of this feature.
