Everyone knows that all football fans have an inner coach: we all have our say about who we'd place in our starting eleven or with which formation we would play. In fact, we've also got an inner manager because we also know which new players we would sing from other teams.
Well, we can't give you all the billions owned by Abramovich, Shahid Khan, Mike Ashley, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha or Sheikh Mansour but we can offer you the possibility to download Football Manager 2018, one of the longest-standing and most interesting fantasy football games on the market.
Feel like a real football manager
But what kind of manager would you be? A Mourinho style that's always having a go at the press? A Klopp style always with a smile on your face? A Guardiola style that will spend billions on defenders? A Wenger style who doesn't want to spend money despite never winning a trophy? In FM that's totally up to you: just sign the players of your choice, sit them on the bench or make them play in the starting XI. You're in charge.
That's basically because in this game you'll take care of all the management aspects of your favorite football team: players, training sessions, transfers, scouting, finances, club employees...
