FM20: Arsenal’s next manager and Nintendo Switch launch

- Advertisement -

Unfortunately for the Gunners, Unai Emery has been removed as Head Coach of Arsenal and many speculations are going around as to who his successor will be. After weeks of constant thinking regarding his future, Arsenal had parted company Unai Emery and his staff, following a disappointing 1-2 home defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Nigel Winterburn, ex-Arsenal legend, claimed that “Emery needs to start delivering this season” and if he didn’t it would create a huge ordeal for his career. The Gunners were weak in the defence department and regrettably, Emery wasn’t able to patch it up resulting in his dismissal.

The Frankfurt defeat was the final straw for the Spaniard at Arsenal, but the Gunners have been in poor form for a while now, as they sit in eighth place in the Premier League after earning just 18 points from their opening 13 games. So, who will be appointed Arsenal’s next manager? We used Football Manager 2020 to predict who could become Arsenal’s new manager.

We loaded up the Football Manager 2020 editor and updated the latest managerial changes, including Pochettino’s sacking and Mourinho’s appointment, to make it as realistic as possible.

We then loaded up a brand new career mode and used the in-game editor to sack Emery instantly, giving Arsenal a decision to make.

Candidates that were among the consideration were Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti, former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, and former AS Roma and Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti. But finally, Arsenal welcomed a club legend back to the club as manager. Patrick Vieira was unveiled as Arsenal’s new manager, replacing Unai Emery. Of course, nothing has been said and done, but it is a likely possibility.

In other exciting news, SEGA and Sports Interactive have confirmed that Football Manager 2020 Touch will release on Nintendo Switch next week. The game will once again let you lead your club to glory on the portable home console, continuing to build on Football Manager 2018 Touch and Football Manager 2019 Touch.

We reviewed Football Manager 2020 Mobile at launch, saying “by combining its predecessor’s accessibility with new features for the seasoned pro, Football Manager 20 dethrones last year’s instalment to become the most definitive football management sim on mobile”. It earned a gold rating in the end, even despite some minor bugs detracting slightly from the experience. The Switch port will not be entirely comparable to the ‘Mobile’ versions released last month.

The game has been available on other platforms like PC, Mac and Google Stadia for a couple of weeks now, with the main, non-Touch version generating pretty favourable reviews. If you’ve yet to pick it up, you’ll find Football Manager 2020 Mobile available for download now from both the App Store and Google Play. It’s currently priced at $8.99.
