Top 10 FM 2013 Players similar to Cristiano Ronaldo

You might remember the Top 10 FM 2013 players similar to Lionel Messi post I’ve published a while back, now I thought I’d play around with FM 13 and bring you a similar top 10 but with FM 2013 players similar to Cristiano Ronaldo. I’ve done this by starting a new game with as many leagues loaded as possible and a large database and then using the new “find similar players” feature in Football Manager 2013. Here’s what came out of it:

You might remember the Top 10 FM 2013 players similar to Lionel Messi post I’ve published a while back, now I thought I’d play around with FM 13 and bring you a similar top 10 but with FM 2013 players similar to Cristiano Ronaldo. I’ve done this by starting a new game with as many leagues loaded as possible and a large database and then using the new “find similar players” feature in Football Manager 2013. Here’s what came out of it:

First I’m going to show you the filters that were used while searching for similar players, the top four were automatically selected by the game, being Cristiano Ronaldo’s top attributes, and I have manually added dribbling to the list.

Here’s how “the original” looks in FM 2013:

And now “the copies”, the most similar first:

1. Lionel Messi

2 fm 2013 lionel messi

This is quite curious since Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t have what it takes to be in the Messi top 10, mainly because his creativity is a lot lower than Messi’s. But Messi does match Ronaldo’s top attributes, so I guess that means Messi is better than CR7, at least in FM 13 ;)

2. Alexis Sanchez

3 fm 2013 alexis sanchez

Alexis is an obvious entry in this list, he does look similar to Ronaldo on the pitch, even though he’s definitely not as powerful.

3. Samir Nasri

4 fm 2013 samir nasri

This is a bit of a surprise for me, I wouldn’t have expected Nasri in this list but the top attributes do look similar to Cristiano Ronaldo’s.

4. Kevin-Prince Boateng

5 fm 2013 kevin-prince boateng

The Milan attacking midfielder is a great player and I agree with the game’s valuation of him, he is incredibly strong and determined but also very good on the ball.

5. Kaka

6 fm 2013 kaka

Real Madrid team-mate Kaka may be toward the twilight of his career but he still has the skills to be in this top 10.

6. Iker Muniain

7 fm 2013 iker muniain

The Basque youngster is the only player to be included in both top 10’s, and that probably proves just how good he is.

7. Andriy Yarmolenko

8 fm 2013 andriy yarmolenko

Yarmolenko is a gem from the East, a great player that probably deserves to play for a better and bigger club in the future.

8. Miralem Pjanic

9 fm 2013 miralem pjanic

Pjanic is a player I have always admired, especially since I had the occasion to watch him on a real football pitch. He has great skills and vision and he can go a long way since he’s still fairly young.

9. Walter Montillo

10 fm 2013 walter montillo

The Argentinian midfielder is the big surprise in this top 10, I admit I didn’t really know much about him when I saw his name in the list. He has never played in Europe and I guess you should give him that chance in FM 13, he looks really good.

10. Jimmy Briand

11 fm 2013 jimmy briand

He’s a solid French player even though he didn’t really reach the glory he was expected to when he was younger. That doesn’t take away his great speed and strength though, might be a good buy for any top European club.

That’s about it for the top 10 FM 2013 players similar to Cristiano Ronaldo, looking forward to some controversial comments ;)

Wow, The last two were a real shock, I don’t think I’ve ever come across Montillo while searching for players (guess my age filter is to blame.) :)

I almost signed Montillo for my Southampton team in 2015. He is fantastic but I worried about him adapting to England and his club wanted £18m for him, which was all of my transfer budget. He eventually signed for AC Milan :(

Technically isn’t Messi in both lists?

Very nice Johnny.
I never would have guessed that if you take away Ronaldo’s aerial prowess, you are left with Nasri.
Any more of these lists planned or are you going to leave it with the world’s best duo (no controversy here ;) ) ?

excellent stuff Johnny, thanks again for sharing. There are some surprises in their, wouldn’t expect some of them in their but I guess the find similar buttons feature is a very good new addition.

Hii, Grt list this, surprising to see Jimmy Briand in there. Btw Walter Montillo is really a very good player in the Game, Had him at dortmund in fm 12 and he tore Bundesliga Defences every week…Was Fifth Highest scorer in the division and lead the assists chart with 32 in 29 games. (was my corner taker as well).
A Suggestion for the Next Top 10 List. 1) Robin van Persie 2) Vincent Kompany 3) Falcao

How about a top 10 players like Pirlo (deep lying playmakers) and Makalele?
