By training your players' skills, you can increase them - without training, they will remain at the same level.
There are five different skills:
- Keeping - the most important skill for a goalie
- Tackling - the most important skill for defenders
- Playmaking - the most important skill for central midfielders
- Passing - the most important skill for wing players
- Scoring - the most important skill for strikers
The skills of players that are age 32 or older will slowly decrease.)
In training each player trains the skills trained. The effect is high only for their main skill, the others will train slowly. To train other skills more effectively players can be repositioned.
The efficiency of training depends on different factors:
The younger, the better - no effect from training if the player is 32 or above
Skills determine how good players will play in certain positions. For example, A striker mostly needs the scoring skill. Good playmaking skills also improve their performance, but the effect is much smaller.
As the training is highly efficient only for the main skill of the trained position of a player, it makes sense to reposition players to other positions for a while to boost their secondary skills. The better the player, the higher the effect of this strategy can be. You can change the position instantly by using "repositioning trading cards" so you don't have to wait 10 days until you receive the full training effect on the new position.
