Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo Become Managers On FIFA 20

Players on FIFA 20 can become managers once their playing careers are over, leading to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi being in charge of teams.

The beta demo for FIFA 20 has been made available for some gamers, to allow them to find and issues and EA to sort them before release, and that's given people the chance to see Ronaldo and Messi in charge of teams.

Screenshots show the Barca man join the carnage at St James' Park and take the reigns of Newcastle United, whilst Ronaldo takes control of Sampdoria. Messi's trousers are a sight to behold.

Of course after retiring it won't just be two of the greatest, if not the greatest, players of all time that will swap boots for tracksuits, or suits.

There's screenshots from the beta demo that also show Wayne Rooney moving from player-coach of Derby County to manager of the Championship club, Gigi Buffon as a manager, Aaron Ramsey in charge of Wolves and best of all Phil Jones as manager of Lille- imagine his facial expressions as a manager!

Of course both Ronaldo and Buffon might be at Juventus right now but neither will be able to manage the Old Lady on FIFA 20.

The EA Sports' game lost the rights to the Serie A champions, with PES signing them to an exclusive deal, meaning they'll be known as Piemonte Calcio on FIFA 20.

Which of the new managers on the game do you think would make the best manager in real life? Will Rooney make it to manager at Derby?
