The world famous online sports game has now launched its 2016 version with a brand new training feature that is designed by Jose Mourinho himself; that means the Special One will finally return to the managerial dugout today, but certainly not in charge of Manchester United.
The former Chelsea manager has instead once again lent his vast knowledge of football to Top Eleven, world’s most played online sports game, which has launched its 2016 version today.
The game, available on iOS, Android and Facebook, already played by more than 130 million managers around the world and now Mourinho has returned to include his vast experience with a brand-new training feature designed by himself to make the game more interesting.
“Training your team is the most important part of being a successful football manager – it is the difference between winning leagues and failing,” said Mourinho.
“That’s why I helped create Top Eleven 2016.”
Top Eleven is developed by Nordeus and specifically designed for cross-platform support for both mobile and the web, the game actually gives players around the world a golden opportunity to manage their own football club, controlling every single part starting from their team’s tactics and transfers to club finances and stadium expansion.
However, Top Eleven’s new training feature comes with the most engaging tactical training simulation to mobile so far, allowing managers from virtual world to truly influence the physical and skill improvements of their players, as well as how their chosen tactics actually work.
The new training feature gives the managers the opportunity to develop individual players, create different training plans, along with earning team bonuses and creating new drills.
When commenting on the launch Branko Milutinovic, the CEO of Nordeus said: “In Top Eleven 2016, we have created game within a game, offering more immersive experience for our players on a daily basis.
“With our new training feature players will need to take a more strategic approach to their gameplay, stepping even further into the shoes of a true football manager.
“By creating a way for players to customise their game plan, we are enabling our players to be much more involved with their teams every day.
“Top Eleven, the game we founded Nordeus upon back in 2010, continues to go from strength to strength and we’re extremely proud to continue our partnership with José Mourinho.
“Making great games is at the heart of what we do and we’re excited to see our players’ reaction to these latest updates.”
Meanwhile, Earlier this week there were reports that Jose Mourinho has informed his associates, the deal with Old Trafford is almost done and he is all set to take charge in the summer.
There were also some reports claiming a most certain contact between the Old Trafford hierarchy and the recently sacked Chelsea manager but Louis van Gaal dismissed all those reports angrily. The Portuguese has been out of job ever since he was shown the door by Chelsea in December. If Mourinho does manage to land the United job, he will definitely reignite his famous rivalry with Pep Guardiola who has already been announced as the next Manchester City manager.
