Welcome to my brand new Football Manager 2020 career, The Teplice Trophy Hunt, where I head over to the Czech Republic to take charge of top division side, FK Teplice. This is a country that I have never managed in despite playing football management games for more than 20 years so it is completely new horizons for me.
We may have one of the biggest stadiums in the country but despite being top tier regulars, FK Teplice have never won the top division title in their 75 year history and in recent years have become a mid-table team with no European qualification for 10 years.
The aim of this FM20 career is to bring glory to FK Teplice and finally win them the Czech league title. Maybe we can add some European silverware along the way too but the primary aim is to dominate our home country. The trophy cabinet may be a little bare but surely we can change that!
As a usual lower league management FM player, this is something slightly different for me as we will actually have a bit of money to spend right from day 1! Can we overcome the likes of Sparta Prague, Viktoria Plzen and Slavia Prague? Let's find out!
