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.
