Managing in Serie A: look who’s impressing me!

As you might know if you’ve seen my recent posts, I’m managing Sampdoria in Italy.

We’re doing okay in competitions and some of my players are doing unexpectedly well so let me introduce you to them and you can see if they might fit at your club.


Luisinho is class. He was bought for £130k from Brazilian Second Division side, Santa Cruz, where Grafite (once of Wolfsburg) is now captain.

His attributes are good but not amazing. However, he has pretty much everything you want in an attacking centre midfielder or advanced playmaker.



You’ve probably heard of Fernando, as had I, but I didn’t know he was this¬†good. He’s fantastic and has scored some screamers. I feel pretty secure knowing he’s looking after my back four.


Lucas Evangelista makes up the three Brazilian amigos. He’s only 20 but he’s so so calm on the ball. He never seems to give the ball away and likes getting in dangerous areas. He can really finish too. He’s my favourite of the three because of his elegance and class. He reminds me of Juan Roman Riquelme.

Lucas is on loan from Udinese and I can’t see them selling him. Maybe I can find a similar player – Lucas’ attributes aren’t amazing – but he has a 7.43 average rating from 20 games. Buy him if you can!
