Christopher Nkunku Interview: His Favourite Position, FM23 Data and More
Christopher Nkunku has been a name on many Football Manager players’ lips for several years now as he’s blossomed from Wonderkid to one of the world’s most dynamic and creative attackers.
We spoke to the France international earlier in the season about his favourite position and his best roles on the pitch. We also discussed whether he had any experience in goal after some interesting tactical choices by our players in Football Manager 2023...
Football Manager: 28%* of FM23 players have played you as an Attacking Midfielder. Is that your best position?
Christopher Nkunku: I think it’s a position that suits me well. I like being close to the goal and being behind the striker. The role describes me as a player nicely, so I always like playing in this role.
FM: FM23 players have used you the most as an Advanced Playmaker on Support duty. Is that a role you enjoy?
CN: It’s a role that works for me, as it reflects my play style. Sometimes, I prefer a role slightly closer to one of the forwards, but I still always enjoy playing in this area of the pitch.
FM: One FM23 player even used you as a Sweeper Keeper! Do you have any experience in that position?
CN: Not at all. I’ve never had any experience as a goalkeeper. I think I’m probably agile enough to give it a go though…
FM: After a week of FM23 Early Access, your player had been involved in 60,000 matches. Do you think you’ve had more goals or assists in those matches?
CN: I think, I’ve scored more goals.
FM: You’re correct. After one week of early access, your player had scored 27,365 goals, and helped his teammates with 24,346 assists.
CN: Nice! I’ve got plenty of both goals and assists.
You can also see Christopher Nkunku put his skills to the test in FM23 when his Football Manager XI competed against 433 in Versus mode.
