Welcome to the complete guide of FM midfielder role carrilero. It is similar to defensive midfielder but does the defending works further up the field. Pretty good role for high pressing and high tempo tactics.

FM carrilero review:
The carrilero – or shuttler – is a supporting role more often than not utilised as part of a midfield three, or as two central midfielders in a diamond midfield. It is the job of these shuttlers to cover lateral areas of the pitch and link the defensive midfielder area with the attacking midfield area. This is what seperates the carrileros from box to box midfielder, as they are not expected to shuttle between boxes, but merely between lines of the midfield.
The carrilero is only available with the support duty.
Stamina, positioning, tackling. work-rate, and passing are the most important attributes for a carrilero. Especially high stamina is essential because physique is everything in modern football.
If you are going to use a carrilero, better make sure to have a good play-maker nearby. Because carrilero is a supportive role and not creative enough.
Best player traits and preferred moves for FM carrilero role:
