An überwinger, also called combo winger or possession winger, was the first example of multi skilled player. The purpose of this player is to provide high wing attack and midfield ratings at the same time, while also allowing the option of playing with several different instructions (e.g. offensive or towards middle).
He is a player with high skills in both winger and playmaking.
The finest of all überwingers also have a valuable specialty that further adds to their team contributions, the classic choice being the "Quick" überwinger.

What once was my pet project, also engaged by a small number of my esteemed conferencemates, has become a full-blown HT Trend embraced by many thousands of HT Managers working on these special players. Hurrah for the überwingers! - Basil
How to train
Potential überwinger trainees are rare and expensive and there is often much competition for them from playmaking trainers. Überwingers almost inevitably take longer to create than mono-skilled players and therefore must be trained much longer overall.
Because the players have to be trained in more than one skill, managers either have to change their training regimens to train the players' second skill, or buy players who have already been trained in their first skill, making the production of these talents more challenging than old style training schemes.
