I don't care what they say, everytime someone complains they are being played out of position, I just say I am converting you.Yeah but how long did it take? I mean did you use him since he was 20,21,22 or 23 in the position you wanted him to learn?
I was wondering this myself, since i've been trying for a long time as well now.
And what's up with that sometimes my player says he understands i will convert him, but the week after - same player same position, he starts whining! Then one week after it's suddenly okay again and so forth. ridiculous
It actually annoys me it takes ages to convert - you have to try playing them in that position every match or most matches for a period of time. If he plays that position every time, it'll probably take 1 season (My guess)
For me it happened after 5-6 seasons to convert de bruyne to dmf as he didn't fit with my 2 dmf formation which I use to play against 'possession game' teams so I had to play him there as he is one of my star players. He whined but his affection was still 4 bars. Depending on their teamwork, they lose affection slowlier
