333 seasons in Football Manager: statements from Sepp Hedel
Reflecting on his achievements, Sepp said:
“My favourite part of the game was to develop smaller clubs, so I started with FC United of Manchester who had their first Premier League win in 2037 after six second places! That was a special moment.
After 50 years in Manchester I had won everything, so I decided to try something new and signed with Bengaluru FC of India. It was a completely different style of play. You don’t get millions because of advertising and TV rights, and you can’t sign more than four foreign players, so I developed young players to achieve my goals.
“I eventually returned to the Premier League with Hereford FC in 2277. However, I realised how insanely strong FC United had developed and it was even more difficult to beat my former club, but I finally succeeded in 2289.
“I think the first victory against the big clubs Manchester City and Manchester United with FC United from Manchester was very special. Of course, the first Premier League title and the first UEFA Champions League win against Atletico Madrid in 2037 was also a great achievement.
“Also, building India’s largest stadium – the 86,250-seat Hedel-Arena in 2257 – and reaching the semifinals of the AFC Champions League 2075, 2246 and 2255, were all great achievements for an Indian club.”
Sepp’s FM addiction has seen him become a Guinness World Record holder after beating the previous efforts of Michal Leniec, a 38-year-old man from Poland, who managed to win for 221 seasons and claimed the award in December 2018.
