This is the first product to successfully combine football management and action games together. Dino Dini was responsible for all engineering and game design. The game had a full management simulation with a live transfer market, and CPU controlled managers bidding against each other as well as the player. This product started the whole Player-Manager franchise.
From 2005 the KOA started the work on updating Player Manager with reverse engineering tecnique. Steve Camber started the work modifing the classic Player Manager removing PBD, Jesper adding the same Ball and pitch of Kick Off 2.
