Secondary Skills are important attributes in your players if you want to build a great team.
Inner midfielders need the most of it. A good inner midfielder must have a good playmaking skill. A better one would have good stamina also, but the NT-level players are the ones who also have good passing skill.
Advantages of having high passing within your midfielders, wingers (wing backs also, but to a less level) and forwards:
- To benefit from these advantages, all your players (except the forwards) should be playing offensively.
- Significantly higher star ratings (two 22 years old playmakers both with solid stamina and on solid form, but one with magnificent playmaking and the other with outstandin playmaking rating both scored 5 stars when the passing of the outstanding was solid and the passing of the magnificent was poor).
- Increases the attacking rate. And this comes to be very useful especially for defence minded coaches who suffer from the lack of attacking power.
- High stamina is a must among your midfielders. Maintaining a level of at least passable and recommended solid or more is the only way you can win a midfield battle (e.g.: a solid midfielder with solid stamina scores 3 stars while a formidable with weak stamina gets 2.5 only !!).
