In FIFA 23’s Career Mode, you might be able to take these teams all the way.
In FIFA 23’s Career Mode, it’s fun to take on the task of rebuilding bad teams and getting them to the level of the best clubs. Fans of the game do these kinds of rebuilds quite often, and it’s a different kind of joy to win the top titles after building a good team slowly over many seasons.
If you want to be challenged and are looking for clubs to handle in Career Mode that are hard, check out the list below. It has teams from the lower levels of the top leagues as well as some teams from leagues that aren’t in the top five.
RFC Seraing, Belgian Pro League
In the last few decades, Belgium has created a lot of great football players, and their league is pretty good. In FIFA 23’s Career Mode, RFC Seraing is the most hardest team to rebuild in the Belgian Pro League. This is because their team isn’t as good as the other top clubs in the top division.
In real life, the club ended 18th and dropped to the second division. This can give you a good idea of how hard it might be for you to lead this team to league success and then to success in Europe.
FC Andorra, LaLiga 2
Football fans know about FC Andorra, and many of them know that Gerard Piqué, a star at Barcelona, owns the team. In their first season in the Segunda Division, they finished seventh, which is no small feat and something to be proud of.
But in the Career Mode of FIFA 23, it is hard to manage this club because it doesn’t have many high-rated players. To lead this team to La Liga and then the Champions League, you should try to find a good mix of young and old players.
Dundee United, Cinch Premiership
A Road to Glory in the game about Dundee United could be fun. The Scottish team is one of the weaker ones in the Scottish Premiership, and you will have to change them to make them as good as Celtic and Rangers and, finally, the best teams in Europe.
One thing you can do is put your attention on the youth school and send your scouts all over the world to find the next big thing. This would help you a lot, because the people you scouted could be real ballers.
Santa Clara, Primeira Liga
After a bad season in the first division, Santa Clara has been sent down to the second division. Even so, since FIFA 23’s Career Mode takes place before the 2022-2023 season, you can try to make up for your mistakes and lead Portugal to the top.
There are a lot of good players on the team who have the ability to be great, like Gabriel Silva, who has an amazing potential of 82. You must count on these talents and try to keep them on the team while also building around them.
Some of the best teams in the Dutch Eredivisie are Ajax, PSV, and Feyenoord, all of which have amazing players. In the meantime, there will be clubs like Excelsior that aren’t as good as the best teams, so you can try to rebuild them.
Some of the club’s best players are on loan, so you should try to get them to stay or find better, younger players to replace them. There is no demotion, so even if you are in the bottom half for the first couple of seasons, you don’t have to worry.
Quevilly Rouen, Ligue 2 BKT
Quevilly Rouen, who play in the second level of French football, is another team you can look forward to rebuilding. In real life, they placed in the middle of the table in the 2022–2023 season and did well all year. But when it comes to Eggy Car, it won’t be easy to manage them, and you’ll need to make smart deals.
At first, you wouldn’t have much money for transfers, but once you get to Ligue 1, you’ll have a good amount to spend. You can try to get a raise in the second or third season. It would be hard to get one in the first season.
SC Verl, 3. Liga
In FIFA 23’s Career Mode, there are three German football leagues. SC Verl is one of the hardest teams to rebuild in the lowest league. They are lucky to have stars like Oliver Batista Meier, who was one of the most promising young players in FIFA 19 and FIFA 20.
The biggest problem would be that it would be hard to get promoted because there are only two promotion spots and one play-off spot. So, you need to make sure that your team stays the same throughout the whole season.
Cittadella, Serie BKT
Cittadella is in the second-best league in Italy right now, so managing them could be a fun task. It will take you a few years to get to Serie A, where you will face top teams like Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Napoli, Roma, Atlanta, and others.
To make your team stronger, you must build a strong base and look for good Free Agents to sign. Also, you need to work on players like Mirko Antonucci because they have a lot of promise and could be very helpful to the club.
Harrogate Town, EFL League Two
In the fourth level of English football, Harrogate Town stands out as a tough team to manage. If you’re looking for a long rebuild, it would be a fun ride. It wouldn’t be easy to get to the Premier League, and you’d have to build your team around young players with a lot of promise so that they can still play once you get there.
You could try to sign Kazeem Olaigbe, who is currently on loan to the team, because he would help you improve your attack. Aside from that, you should first try to build a good defense by getting a goalkeeper or center backs.
UCD AFC, SSE Airtricity League Premier Division
In the Career Mode of FIFA 23, UCD AFC is one of the hardest teams to rebuild in Europe. It is the university team for University College Dublin. There isn’t much money to spend, and the young players aren’t very well thought of.
Also, they are on the verge of being kicked out of the league, so you might not even get a chance to rebuild them in EA Sports FC 24. So, putting this Irish team back together and getting them to the top would make the feeling even stronger.
