What is a False Nine in Football Manager 2017?
A false nine in football means it is a center forward whose goal is to help all offensive players on the attacking team process.
The main purpose of this is to disorganize the opponent’s defensive line, creating spaces for other advanced players (especially for AML/AMR) to create scoring situations.
Players for this false 9 role can go down to the midfield to apply the technique mentioned above and may also build-up play from that area of the field.
This type of player is usually used by teams that do not have tall and strong players and prefer to have a more controlled football game instead of a more aerial offensive game.
