Kara’s career history until 2016

This FM 2013 player profile of Kara is that of a beast, just like last year Kara is very strong and versatile. Recommended as a DMC I’d personally use the 22 year old in defense, but where he plays may come down to what you need. Kara can play midfield and defense equally as well, but be aware that he can provide a goal or two from carefully planned set pieces. At £9 million this guy is still worth the investment, unfortunately that price is way above what it used to be before patch 13.3.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

    Always beastly and cheap, glad to see him as strong in 2013 as well!

      Yeah SI obviously feel last years evaluation was accurate.

  • comment avatar Henri October 25, 2012

    Grrr i try and sign this guy every year in EPL, Always get the work permit problem!!!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2012

      Yeah it is annoying, he will be sign-able after moving elsewhere in Europe but not at the start.

        Yeah he is trouble is you end up paying 15-20m ;|

    Darren did you ever think about doing a review on Sebastian Coates from Liverpool. I might be a bit bias being a liverpool fan but he seems to always be my best center back often fans player of the season if not young player of the season. 6 ft 5 18 jumping and 16 heading he scores with his head for me at least 5 times a season, like Kara he never seems to loses a header. He has great physical and mental stats just needs some work on his tackling which tbh I barely see him commit a foul. The best thing is you can pick him up for 10-12m and he can develop into one of the best center backs in the game and probably one of the best aerial threats you could find.

      While he does look good and promising at the start of the game, he hasn’t been developed well by the CPU in my save, so until I find one where he has progressed I won’t be able to profile him I afraid.

        OK well i started my Liverpool save on Friday and I’m around half a season in so far, maybe I could send you some screenshots around 4-5 seasons in? He played like a god in FM12 and hes even better in 13 I’ve got to show you how awesome he can be! How would i submit a report?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith November 4, 2012

          If you get 5-6 seasons in let me know how he develops and I’ll explain how to share the screenshots. Cheers.

            Ok, sure thing.

    Kara!! He’s simply the overall..gets the goals off headers throughout the season..plays best if employed as a Defensive-Midfielder(Anchor Man) well as a Central Defender. He’s my 1st buy with any team I start with(doesn’t get his work permit if I play in EPL/Championship)..did this in FM12 as well as in FM13..He’s good in penalties too..(in a penalty shootout..i try to give him a go..and so far 9 out 9 times he’s done it in style!)..
    But, its sad for an Fm fanatic like me to see his work permit turned down every single time..whenever I’m playing with a EPL team..or a Championship team!! :(
    But he’s great..awesome!!
    Darren Smith..SALUTE U brother..awesome job on your work in Football Manager..Thanks a ton buddy!! :)

      No problem mate, its a pleasure.

  • comment avatar Eoin January 2, 2013

    Is Kara much dearer after his first move?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 2, 2013

      I don’t know, that would vary for almost every game.

  • comment avatar Cole August 6, 2013

    I’d love to get this guy to play as a BWM for me, but I won’t be able to get a work permit for him. Is there anyone else you would recommend in that role and/or who is similar to Kara and not outrageously expensive?
