Welcome everyone to my first Football Manager 2014 story! Having had loads of fun (and still having loads of fun) with taking Inter Milan to the top of football history with a legend of the club in charge last year, I can’t help of wanting to do something similar in the newest edition of FM.
My heart continues to yearn for Italian calcio, but this time I will be taking the trek south from Milan to the capital city of Rome and will take the helm of AS Roma. I will be using a certain Giallorossi legend, unarguably their greatest player in history, in a player-manager capacity; Francesco Totti.
My goal for the save is quite simple; bring AS Roma to the top of Europe for the first time in their history by capturing the UEFA Champions League. A couple of Scudetti or Coppa Italia wouldn’t hurt either!
This story will be mainly writing based for one simple reason; writing monthly updates all the time bores me. I want to test out my writing skills in this story and hopefully become a better writer and provide a more interesting to read story in the process.
