David Salapura FM Database, Tools 2 Comments

The FM19 4th edition database, one of the most popular database, is here! This year’s edition includes more legendary clubs and players. However, you will have an opportunity to play and manage 4000 legends all over the world in their respective teams.

Moreover, all of the major and minor leagues are filled with clubs which possess their all-time greats. And are under the guidance of the managers, coaches, and chairmen who ever graced the game.

The players who are coming from the oldest eras of football are older than the ones who appeared later. Therefore, they are closer to their peaks.

In addition, the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar still exist. But, they are younger versions of themselves and relocated to their parent clubs. Thus, your task as a manager is now more challenging because it’s up to you to develop them into world-class players they are today.

This is a thrilling update which can bring any Football Manager fan into an ecstatic state of nostalgia. You will definitely enjoy the game more and find it refreshing and challenging like never before. Moreover, the facepack of most of the players is complete.
