I've created a Virtual Pro in FIFA 12 who seems to have a real lack of energy. Even if I play a match as him and never use sprint, he is worn out by the end of the match. After a match of playing, the coach will e-mail a few days after a game telling me he's sitting me out of the next game because of exhaustion. This has happened after every single match so far, about 8 weeks into the season, so I skip every other week.
Is there a way to increase my virtual pro's energy? If there is, in the meantime, is there a way to get the coach to sub me out of a game? I'm playing Career mode as a player, not as a player-coach, or coach.
