Having a strong midfield is crucial to success both in the real world and in FIFA 22.

In the past year, Jorginho helped Chelsea win the Champions League and Italy lift the European Championship and thus was quickly made one of the favourites for the Ballon d'Or.

Jadon Sancho was the best young midfielder in FIFA 21 and that was reflected in reality as well as he joined Manchester United in the summer of 2021 for £73 million.

Sancho's potential is huge, but to reach it, he will require game time and the right coaching. This is also true of any young player in FIFA 22 as well.

To reach their potential rating, you will need to give them the right experience for them to be a success on the pitch.
