Luis Guilherme’s career history until 2019

Guilherme may not look like much in 2011 and that is why we provide future profiles. Just look at the young Brazilians attributes come 2019, this kid could really be one of the FM 2012 best Goalkeepers. Your only issue will be positioning but you can focus on that through individual training and it’s drowned out by his pure quality in every other area. Guilherme is available for a tiny fee of £300K making him one of the best cheap buys FM 2012 has to offer. Just note that he may struggle to get a work permit during the first season, making him tough to sign if you’re managing in England.

Best buy rating: 9/10

    You should be awarded the Fifa fair play award for doing this mate.. nice work!

    This goal keeper is quite good, though I would rate David De Gea much better that this guy.

    I’m in my 3rd season with man utd and he’s played 17 games in all competitions and only conceded 4 goals. Made a few mistakes in the first season.. but hes great now!

      Thanks for that mate, appreciate the compliment. De Gea is better than this guy but I was trying to show cheaper options, he’s certainly top notch for the price.

    Luis Guilherme is one of the best GK in game IMO. I tend to leave him at Mineiro for a two or three seasons, and then sign, as he gets plenty of footbALL IN Brazil.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 6, 2012

      I agree he is amazing Stu, and with the right management could certainly be one of the best keepers potentially…also a bargain considering the cost.

    I’ll have to comment on Guilherme a bit in light of my almost finished season with West Ham. After grabbing him in my 1st season, he played backup to Robert Green for 1.5 seasons before taking over.

    You don’t have to do anything special in terms of training, just have a good goalkeeping coach and listen to his advice. I just won the Treble in my 5th season(FA, League Cup, EPL with 4 games to go) with him and Fierro leading the way. Least goals allowed(Sebastian Toro does help massively too), shut Man Utd down in the League Cup final and amazingly being the hero against Chelsea in the FA Cup penalty shooutout. Unfortunately, PSG destroyed me 7-3 on aggregate in the quarter finals of the Euro Cup.

    Like Stu said, he probably is one of the best simply because of his reflexes, concentration, composure and decision making as he doesn’t seem to make stupid mistakes often and is amazing in one-on-ones. In general, your chances of getting De Gea, Courtois or Der Stegen are low if you don’t have a big budget, and if you’re building a young squad for the future, it’s better go get Guilherme and use the rest of the budget on other players.

      Thanks for the information Andrew.

  • comment avatar druefar April 13, 2012

    How on earth has he managed to drop his positioning from 13 at the beginning to 7 in 2019???

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 13, 2012

      The screenshot from 2011 is with the latest patch 12.2, whereas the future screenshot from 2019 is the first patch so his stats have changed.

  • comment avatar Sava May 29, 2012

    Luis Guilherme or Plamen Iliev from Levski (Sofia)? I’m playing with Levski now.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 29, 2012

      Iliev isn’t visible in my game so I couldn’t comment but Guilherme is very good potentially.

  • comment avatar Manny Sedita June 23, 2012

    This guy really is great, started him at VVV-Venlo in Holland and was little shaky in first season and now is preforming great Season 2.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 23, 2012

      Yeah he is a great keeper, tough at the start but stick by him and he’ll reward you in the future.

  • comment avatar Niclas July 18, 2012

    At the start of my liverpool save he had 3,5 stars in PA but now after half a season he only has 1,5? You still think i should try buying him? And do you think he will have his work permit after the first season in the game? :)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 19, 2012

      I don’t know your save so couldn’t say but when a players report drops that much its best too look elsewhere.

  • comment avatar Mygzar July 29, 2012

    I’m currently playing Betis and i signed this guy in the second season. Will I have to play him, or could I loan him out or move him to Betis B? :-)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 29, 2012

      I’d try and send him out on loan, if that doesn’t work play him in Betis B.

      • comment avatar Mygzar July 29, 2012

        Great, thanks for answering!

  • comment avatar Niclas July 31, 2012

    Will he ever be able to receive a work permit in england?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 31, 2012

      Only if he plays in somewhere like Spain first or qualifies through the general rules.

  • comment avatar Darren August 13, 2012

    i set up a feeder club for work permits but it takes 3 years for them to get one :(

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 14, 2012

      I haven’t tried it myself before, just decided to accept some players can’t be signed.

  • comment avatar Unknown May 24, 2013

    i got his positioning up to 19 and he is a beast
