FM21 Coach Calculator for Football Manager

I've updated my popular five star coach calculator for Football Manager 2021. This calculator can be used to work out the star rating of each coach in each of the coaching assignments.

Football Manager Tools | FM21 Coach Calculator

Welcome to my new FM21 coach calculator. No different from FM20, just an updated year.


We all want the best coaches available for our clubs to help us with player development, in the youth and the first teams. It sometimes seems a bit hit and miss with signing coaches, so I created a tool that enables me to calculate the staff star rating ahead of signing them so we can make sure we only have 5-star coaches at the club (or as close to as we can).

Simply enter the coaches mental attributes into the FM21 coach calculator, and then, depending on whether you’re looking for a fitness coach, general coach or goalkeeping coach, enter the attribute values that are specific to the coach in question, e.g., for a fitness coach you only need to enter their Determination, Level of Discipline and Motivating mental attributes and then their Fitness attribute. The FM21 coach calculator will then give you their star rating.



Coaches only play a small role in developing players at your club. You should also ensure you upgrade your training facilities to make sure your players have the best equipment available to help them reach their potential.

Until next time.

  1. Hello Oliver!

    I’ve been reading your blog for quite sometime now. Having finally caught up with your FM19 and FM20 saves, I see that it’s been a while since you’ve posted something here.

    Looking forward to your updates from FM21!
