This challenge will reflect the success that Howard Wilkinson had managing Leeds United.

For this challenge you must take over a tier 2 side in the top 5 ranked associations; England, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. The club you take over in the 2nd tier must be a side that in the previous season finished in the bottom half of the league.

Your challenge is set out below;
Season 1; Finish in the top half of the tier 2 league.
Bonuses; Get to Round of 32 of a domestic cup competition.
Extra; Have a cup run to at least quarter finals.

Season 2; Win promotion by coming in first place. Promote one youth player to use regularly.
Bonuses; Promote at least one other youth player and buy 2 players over the age of 30.
Extra; Leeds lost 9 games that season; challenge is to only lose 4 or less.

Season 3; First season back in top flight; must finish in top 6 (Leeds finished 4th).
Bonuses; Reach the semi-finals of a domestic cup competition.
Extra; Leeds brought in only three players – do the same. Must recoup at least 50% of what you have spent to bring in players. So if you spend 50 million on players, you must recoup 25 million back in sales.

Season 4; Win the title. Quarter finals of domestic cup competition.
Bonuses; Stay unbeaten at home all season.
Extra; Now in the previous season you will qualify for Europe; your challenge is to get to at least the semi-finals of the Europa League or quarter-finals of the Champions League while still completing the above.

There you go, another challenge to complete. You only have a max of 4 seasons to complete the challenge; best of luck and no cheating!
