Your trainer affects the outcome of each player's training. The better your trainer is, the more successful the training will be for each player..

A trainer has seven (7) attributes with values of each attribute ranging between 0 and 100.

Trainers attributes

  • Leadership
  • Attack
  • Defense
  • Powerplay
  • Boxplay
  • Goalkeeping

These attributes control the training of your players.


You have the option of training your trainer every week. You can choose to train your trainer in one or two different attributes. You can let your trainer rest by choosing "None" in the drop down list for either "Education 1:" and/or "Education 2".

The cost to educate or train your trainer is 100 000 LHD for one attribute and 250 000 LHD for two attributes per week.

The attributes of your trainer increase by two (2) steps each week for every attribute you train. Your trainer(s) education him/themselves thoughout the week and is visible after each economy update on Sunday. The training selected on your trainer at the time of update is what he will "train" on.


Motivation refers to how dedicated and committed your trainer is with regards to the club. Motivation cannot be "trained" for improvement. Motivation will slowly decrease the longer your trainer is with your club. Motivation is affected by your teams performance during the season and is updated during between season updates.

Assistant trainer and scout are not automatically replaced. You as a manager must make your own arrangements to replace them for the regular cost. The doctor is automatically replaced.

Trainer types

A trainer can be one of 3 types. Offensive, normal or Defensive. These types are an option you choose when hiring your trainer and reflect during matches. An offensive trainer focuses more on attack or goal scoring, whereas a defensive coach will lean more towards defense. Normal is a blend of both.

When you hire your coach or trainer, he will have extra attributes depending on which trainer type you choose. Below you will see how the attributes are distributed.

Assistant Trainer

You have the option of having one (1) assistant coach/trainer in your club. You can choose to hire a brand new assistant or hire one of your retiring players to this position.
