The Best Right Wingers (AMR) in Football Manager

If you are seeking to inject your team with pace, precision, and the game-changing prowess of top-tier talent, then you’re in the right place!

Here, you will find not only my top three picks for the best right wingers but also the most comprehensive list of the best right wingers in the world!

The position of a right winger (AMR) in football, especially when played by a left-footed player, is significant for several tactical reasons.

  • Inverted Wingers: Traditionally, wingers were expected to play on the side that matched their dominant foot (right-footed players on the right, left-footed players on the left) to facilitate crossing. However, the modern game often employs ‘inverted wingers’ – players who play on the opposite side of their dominant foot. A left-footed player on the right wing (right inverted winger) can cut inside onto their stronger foot, offering a direct threat to the goal. This change in angle can create scoring opportunities and disrupt defensive formations.
  • Shooting Opportunities: Left-footed players on the right wing have a natural angle for shooting at goal, especially when cutting inside. Their position allows them to aim at the far post with greater ease, a tactic often difficult to defend against.
  • Versatility in Attack: Having a left-footed player on the right wing adds unpredictability to the attack. The player can choose to cut inside to shoot or pass, or go down the wing to deliver a cross with their weaker foot. This versatility makes it harder for defenders to anticipate and counter their moves.
  • Creating Space: When a left-footed right winger cuts inside, it creates space for overlapping runs from the right-back or right-sided midfielders. This movement can lead to overloading defensive areas and creating mismatches, which can be exploited.
  • Impact on Opposing Defences: Defenders are typically used to facing players who operate on their natural side. An inverted winger can pose a unique challenge, as defenders might be less adept at dealing with threats coming from the ‘wrong’ side. This can lead to hesitancy or errors in judgment.
  • Set Pieces and Crosses: While crossing may be less natural for an inverted winger, they can still deliver dangerous in-swinging crosses from the right side. Moreover, their positioning can be advantageous for certain set pieces, including corner kicks and free-kicks, where the ball’s curve can be more deceptive for goalkeepers and defenders.

In my opinion, these are the three best right wingers in FM 2024.

How Did I Choose the Best?

Having played this wonderful simulation for many years, I have figured out which attributes and their values are by far the most important for right winger roles.

Accceleration 14+
Pace 14+
Crossing 12+
Dribbling 14+
Finishing 12+
Long shots 10+


So, let’s analyze why each attribute is important:

  • Acceleration (14): This reflects how quickly a player can reach their top speed from a standing start. High acceleration is crucial for a winger or forward because it allows the player to make quick, explosive starts and sudden changes of pace that can beat defenders, particularly when starting a counter-attack or trying to get behind the defensive line.
  • Pace (14): This reflects a player’s top speed both with and without the ball. Having high pace means the player can cover ground quickly, which is essential for both attacking, to exploit spaces in the opposition defense, and defending, to recover when the team loses possession.
  • Crossing (12): This reflects the player’s ability to deliver accurate crosses from wide areas. Good crossing is vital for creating scoring opportunities, especially if the team has competent headers of the ball. Even a slightly above-average crossing ability can be a significant asset if the player can find space to deliver crosses.
  • Dribbling (14): This reflects the player’s ability to run with the ball and manipulate it under close control. Excellent dribbling skills enable a player to navigate through tight spaces, maintain possession under pressure, and beat opponents one-on-one, which is particularly useful in creating chances from wide areas or cutting inside toward the goal.
  • Finishing (12): This reflects the player’s ability to put the ball in the back of the net when presented with a chance. For a player who gets into goal-scoring positions, being able to finish with consistency can be the difference between winning and losing. A player with decent finishing can contribute a good number of goals from the AMR position.
  • Long Shots (10): This reflects the player’s prowess when shooting from outside the penalty area. While not as high as other attributes, a reasonable long shots rating means the player can still be a threat from distance, forcing defenses to close them down and potentially opening up space for teammates.

A player with this profile would be very effective on the right wing, able to create chances both for themselves and for others, and could be a constant threat to the opposition defense with their speed, dribbling, and ability to deliver quality crosses.

Their finishing ability suggests they can also cut in and score goals themselves, while their long shots attribute, though not as high, still allows them to be a threat from range.
