You Can Play Championship Manager 01/02 With Today's Squads

Championship Manager 01/02 is renowned as one of the greatest games of all time.

From the great Maxim Tsigalko, a Belarusian striker who could bag 50 goals-a-season without fail, to the original English wonderkid Cherno Samba - this edition produced some household names in the early 00's.

The fact that thousands of fans are still active on the servers is a testament to its timeless quality.

But even if you haven't played Championship Manager 01/02 of late then fear not because a groundbreaking update has arrived that plenty of fans won't even know about.

It turns out you can now play with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Trent Alexander-Arnold thanks to the guys over at Champman0102.

And it's free of charge.

If you've ever associated yourself with the Championship Manager franchise then you'll instantly recognise the name Maxim Tsigalko; a £900k bargain-buy.

A talented Minsk-born striker who would turn into the virtual Pele, this legendary figure would soon have his face plastered over unofficial merchandise, including t-shirts available in eight different colours.

If you fancy reading more about the man himself, you can find out more here.
