Ajax in FM24Sports Interactive
Utilizing Ajax’s academy is great for your FM24 save.

Ajax are a club steeped in heritage and class. The Dutch giants are known for their stellar academy, and for dominating the Eredivise for most of this decade. They’ve also gotten agonizingly close to European glory in recent years but their fortunes have taken a nosedive this season.

Ajax currently sit in 11th place in the Dutch League with plenty of uncertainty surrounding the club. They’ve also lost out on some incredible academy talents in the last couple of seasons, leaving their squad a bit thin.

It’s on you to step in and tighten their squad planning. You’ll also have to chart development plans for the promising youngsters in their academy. Ultimately, the onus is on you to make Ajax a European giant once again.

Leicester City

From their miraculous PL triumph in 2016 to their famed FA Cup win in 2021, Leicester City know a thing or two about being the underdogs. But due to a lack of investment in their squad, the Foxes have dropped down to the Championship.

If you’re looking for a long save with some Division 2 action, Leicester could be the way to go. Besides sorting out their recruitment, you’ll probably need to get into the board’s good books and improve the club’s facilities. There’s always the possibility of pulling a Ranieri and making the Foxes champions once again.

Manchester United’s first team could use a few changes in FM24.

It’s no secret that Manchester United are a mess. Long gone are the days of their dominance over English football as the Red Devils are stuck in an endless cycle of expendable managers. The club is also plagued by a lack of unity and cohesion within the squad plus the facilities could use an upgrade as well.

Bringing joy back to the Theatre of Dreams won’t be easy but that’s what makes it all the more gratifying. Perhaps you’ll be the catalyst that sparks life into the red half of Manchester.

Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berlin have seen a startling decline in recent years that culminated with their relegation to 2. Bundesliga. The German outfit used to be European regulars but now they’re struggling to find their footing in the 2nd Division. In contrast, their city rivals, Union Berlin, managed to secure a Champions League spot last season.

The club will require a major overhaul to get back to winning ways. Your job is to provide some much-needed stability to the team and lead them back to the Bundesliga.

FC Groningen
