7. Sell players who do not fit your game plans
Obviously, the first method of making big money quickly is by selling players. However, there is a specific way of doing so. The players you sell must be ones that you know will not be of any use to you. As well as considering their usability to you, you have to also consider the player’s feelings. If they do not want to move to another club, you will not be able to force them. This makes getting rid of players much harder.
A good way to identify surplus players is by looking at your squad depth. For each position in your desired formation, come up with a list of the players that can play in that position. You should aim for about 5 players in each position for a good level of squad depth. Any player that you think doesn’t help out enough or doesn’t fit in, you can sell.
8. Loan out players to free up wages
An alternative to selling players is to loan them out for a period of time. The benefit of this is that you will not have to pay the player’s wages. This will allow you to save money and use it in other aspects of your club. A good idea is to go through your squad and loan-list any youth players that won’t be breaking into your starting 11 anytime soon. Apart from helping you reduce wage costs, this also means that you can allow youngsters to grow to potentially be starters in the future.
9. Play the game on a regular basis
Like in any other mobile game, you are encouraged to regularly play the game. SM21 offers rewards for this, including Free Packs, Daily Login rewards, and many more. The main reward currency for these kinds of activities is Gold which can help in every aspect of the game. Gold can buy cash injections, speed-ups for upgrades, and even specific Spotlight players where you can sign high-value players from a selection with Gold rather than cash. Just log in and play the game as often as you can to build up your rewards, this will then lead to cash benefits in your game career.
10. Aim for the top in all competitions
It goes without saying, being a manager requires you to win trophies for your club. As well as the physical prize trophy, you will also earn some tidy prize money. Amongst handling your club finances, facilities, etc, you may sometimes forget that the whole point is to win glory for the club. Keep working hard towards these objectives and you will automatically earn benefits for your club.
