A full-back is a player who plays on the left or right side of a football team’s defense. You’ll need full-backs for the vast majority of Football Manager 2020 Mobile team formations with flat back fours or fives. Those are players who defend the left and right sides of their teams’ penalty boxes.
You can also give full-backs in your Football Manager 2020 Mobile teams more attacking wing-back roles.
