After what feels like an eternity of waiting around, FIFA 20 is finally here.
Amongst the new additions and tweaks made to this latest entry in the long-running FIFA franchise, one aspect that instantly got gamers' attention was the overhaul to Career Mode. All being well, all bugs have been eradicated, new features are in place, and we've all been promised a vastly improved gaming experience for this particular game mode.
Of course, it remains to be seen just how well those changes work, and the jury will remain out on Career Mode until players have had a chance to properly go deep on this game type.
Now while identifying which players will make good signings for your team is a key part of Career Mode, even more important is starting the game with the right sort of team in the first place. Granted, you might get drawn in by the bright lights of some of world football's money-rich clubs with the best squads on the game, but so often Career Mode is about finding a team that's simply fun to play as and that has potential for major growth.
Keeping in line with that school of thought, then, here are ten teams who you should consider for your exploration of FIFA 20's Career Mode.
10. Red Bull Leipzig
For the past decade, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have been seen as the power players in the Bundesliga. In FIFA 20, however, it’s Red Bull Leipzig that offer the best option in Career Mode.
RB’s starting budget of €50 million is obviously a nice chunk of change, although the most intriguing element of Leipzig is the opportunity to develop the players already at the club.
When Career Mode starts, the club already have a good first team squad based around the likes of Peter Gulacsi (85), Timo Werner (83), Kevin Kampl (83), Emil Forsberg (82), and Willi Orban (81), but it’s in the squad’s young players where the most reward lies.
In youngsters such as Ibrahima Konate (79 > 88), Dayot Upamecano (77 > 88), Tyler Adams (76 > 86), Ademola Lookman (76 > 86), Matheus Cunha (74 > 85), Hannes Wolf (74 > 85), and Christopher Nkunku (77 > 85), Red Bull Leipzig have a squad brimming with so much potential.
If you’re a player who plays Career Mode for the development side of things, Leipzig is most definitely a club you should give serious consideration to taking charge of.
