Although he still has many years ahead of him in his professional career, perhaps Antoine Greizmann is already preparing for life once he does look to hang up his boots.
Football Manager is a highly popular game series that has been available for gamers for a number of years, with a number of editions having proven incredibly popular for users all around the world. Indeed, it is a game many bettors using sites such as betting24 Sweden to make informed decisions.
Whilst many of us can only dream of having a career in the world of professional football, whether it be as a player or as a manager, there are a lucky few who go on to realise that dream and live it out in reality.
However, and like many other footballers in the world, Greizmann likes to play a game of Football Manager every now and again and the FC Barcelona and France international has recently posted just how he likes to play it.
Indeed, some of it is truly incredible and can only make some of us avid Football Manager players a little envious.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner posted on his Instagram story – with a screenshot tweeted out by SPORTbible, showing that he adopted a rather attacking approach.

All out attack ✔️
Wonderkids galore ✔️
No goalkeeper on the bench ✔️

Top of Ligue 1 with Olympique de Marseille, Greizmann has managed to fill his squad with some star-studded talent. The likes of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Ibrahima Konate, Eric Garcia, Andy Robertson, Pedri, Reyner, Ousmane Dembele and Joshua Zirkzee all feature in the starting XI. Add the likes of N’Golo Kante and Houssem Aouar to a substitutes bench and it is no surprise why he is currently top of the French top-flight. Olympique de Marseille could only wish for such a reality…
Indeed, Greizmann had every single one of his players playing with an attacking focus, whilst he had a squad filled to the brim with wonderkids. I can only be so jealous!
Furthermore, perhaps one of the most ballsy of moves is that he does not include a substitute goalkeeper on his bench! There have been times where I have been tempted with it as I’ve wanted to include a talent that I have not had room for, however it has only come to bite me where it hurts.
Naturally, we hope that Griezmann does not suffer the same fate as I once did…. I’m still angry with that Championship Manager 01/02 save I had with Bayern Munich…
However, each to their own and it clearly appears to be working for him. Perhaps I should try it with one of my next saves on Football Manager 21?
