The Best Teams to Manage on FIFA 21 Career Mode

After several years of neglect, EA Sports have finally treated FIFA Career Mode fans to some much needed improvements this year.

Interactive match sim gives wannabe managers more control than ever and there has also been considerable upgrades to the training, development and transfers systems.

Thanks to all of this, FIFA 21 is set to feature the best iteration of Career Mode in some time. The question is, which teams are going to be lucky enough to benefit from your considerable managerial talents? If you're struggling to decide, check out our list of recommendations below.

1. Red Star FC

Taking over Red Star FC on FIFA 21 is an exciting prospect.

First, there's the chance to end Paris Saint-Germain's stranglehold over French football.

Second, it's a club with a rich history. Red Star were founded in 1897 by Jules Rimet, who would later serve as president before lending his name to the World Cup trophy.

Third and most importantly, they've got a really nice kit. Just look at it. You'll never tire of watching your players walk out in that.

2. Fulham

Fulham have received a lot of stick since returning to the top flight. Quite rightly as well. They've been diabolical.

Keeping them in the Premier League will be quite a challenge on FIFA 21 but with Tony Kahn removed from the recruitment department, the Cottagers surely have a far better chance.

After you keep them up, why not try and replicate their run to the Europa League final? Just make sure you sign a few defenders first.

3. Harrogate Town

Road to glory challenges do not get harder than this...

At the time of release, lowly Harrogate Town were the worst ranked EFL team on FIFA 21. Taking them to the top flight will be a long term project, but what an achievement if you can get it done.

At least you'll start off with journeyman striker Jonathan Stead. He famously knows where the net is, managing one goal in 30 games for Sunderland during the 2005/06 Premier League season.

4. Manchester United

Manchester United are a mess. From top to bottom and left to right, every single aspect to the club's on-field approach is in dire need of improvement.

FIFA 21 offers you the chance to bring the good times back to Old Trafford. Winning a trophy would be a good start, but restoring the Red Devils' dynasty should be your end goal.

Maybe start off with signing Jadon Sancho? That seems like a good idea. Just pay whatever Borussia Dortmund want. You should probably bring in a few defenders as well.

5. Waterford FC
