The Best Wonderkids in Football Manager 2023

Are you wondering who the best wonderkids in Football Manager 2023 might be? We’ve rounded up the 10 best right here.

‘Wonderkids’ is a term for a player that has unrivalled potential and can slot into most teams at a young age. This term has become so popular that it has transcended Football Manager and is used by pundits of the real game. But, of course, right now we’re concerned with the best wonderkids in Football Manager 2023.

The ability of players is dependent on your needs of course, but every player has a hard-coded potential ability that they can reach if they develop in the most optimal way. Even Ronaldo wouldn’t hit the heights if he was learning his trade at Chelmsford rather than Manchester United.

Potential ability is given as a range for most players and will vary within that range game to game. However, there are five wonderkids in Football Manager 23 that have hard-coded unchanging potential ability that, if developed properly, will lead them to being world-class. We’ll start with those first.

The Best Wonderkids in Football Manager 2023 With World-Class Potential
