'Football Manager 2014' director offers advice to newcomers

Football Manager 2014 director Miles Jacobson offers advice for first-time players.

Football Manager 2014 director Miles Jacobson has offered advice to newcomers to the videogame series.

The Sports Interactive head said that users should think hard about player roles and instructions, and look at how real-life teams use specific players.

"When you are going to be playing a game and you set up your tactics, think very hard about player roles and player instructions. Don't just think that saying you want to play 4-4-2 is going to be enough," he told Sports Mole.

"Have a look at the team that you are managing, have a look at how they play in real life. Have a look at the roles the players have in real life.

"You wouldn't play Michael Carrick in an attacking midfield role because Manchester United don't play him in that role. Make sure that you set the roles correctly to get the best out of them."

Football Manager 2014, which contains more than 1,000 improvements over the 2013 edition, is available for PC and Mac now.
