・How to Develop Players

Trending players are versions of players who have put in excellent performances on a particular week and have had their stats boosted to reflect that performance. This type of player is perfect for immediate inclusion on your team sheet, but can't be developed any further.
Standard, Featured and Legendary players can all be trained to boost their stats and fine-tune their abilities to fit your game plan. They may not start with impressive stats like their Trending counterparts, but given enough time to develop they may eventually become a better fit for your team!

Therefore, develop your players via Training; Fine-tune them to better suit your game plan and guide your team to glory!
