I always like managing in Italy, did some enjoyable saves in the last few years with fiorentina, milan and parma. Now i thought lets manage a team that never really did anything but should have!
So i choose Venezia! look at that logo, winged lions, pretty awesome. Despite existing since 1907, they have had so few successes that their club legends are a manager that got second place in Serie B as a highlight in his 2 year reign, and alvaro recoba.. who played there a single season on loan.
Promotion wasnt too hard in the first season, a couple of decent-ish players, shored up with a couple free players and a few extra loans, got me first place. In the second season got a decent transfer budget of 8 million, bought tonali, brescia relegated and i somehow was the only one to make an offer, 2,5 up front, 7,5 in installments en 5 after 50 apps. then also bought almada for 2,5 with 3 after 50, got a couple other players for next to nothing off the transfer list and brought in 16 free signings.
I ended up 5th! with this tactic giving the club culture now as attacking, entertaining football, with a high tempo pressing game. Tonali averaged a 7.92 as a regista, fantastic player.
I definitely recommend playing as Venice, its very enjoyable, the chairman approves most requests and just look at that badass logo man.
