When you picked your player (Virtual Pro or real) you will get a set of Season Objectives that will need to be completed which have been set by the manager. Choosing the type of player in the FIFA 13 Be A Player mode (defender, forward, defender, etc) will determine your objectives.
If you are not happy with life at your club, you now have the option to request a loan to gain more match game time, or if you decide you want out completely, you can request a transfer.
If you decide to play for a top club and have a low rated Virtual Pro, you will not be a regular to begin with, you’ll be shipped out to gain much needed experience first.
Once you decide to hang up your boots for good, you can choose to retire for and take up management.
If your Virtual Pro is playing poorly or fatigued, the manger can substitute your player.
As well as your default Season Objectives, you’ll also be asked to achieve objectives come every four matches. These objectives could include clean sheets/goals, tackle/pass completion percentages, and more. These objectives depends on the quality of opposition you face in your matches.
