Brilliant but I'm sad

Really enjoyed this game so much!!! Play it everyday but then I got to the 20th season played then excited about my 21st but instead it tells me to retire and finishes... I am gutted .... I'm too young to retire... 😭 ...why why why oh why ....overall I thought brilliant game but really disappointed it ended and knowing I will finish in twenty seasons puts me off restarting ...

Football manager

This game maybe not as advanced as other well known football manager games. But for the price, there is enough enjoyment and addiction to keep you involved. Very updated version actually does improve the game. Well worth a few pounds spent on it
