Roles are assigned to players on the field. FIFA 22 player roles are customisable and you can assign them to any player in your squad’s Starting 11.
In the TEAM MANAGEMENT menu > ROLES, you can examine and re-assign player roles. Under Squad > Actions window > Player Responsibilities in FIFA Ultimate Team, you may assign and preset these roles for your squads. In FUT, you can also use Auto-Assign Player Roles, which lets CPU AI pick up the best players for the appropriated roles.
