Way back in August 2019, fledgling English football manager Robí di Lathamé took the reigns of Sporting Lisbon. Now, 21 years later at the age of 56, I was preparing for my final match as a football manager.
My return to Italy with Juventus, some time on from a failed time at Cagliari, was a resounding success. We pipped Inter to the Serie A title and won my first Champions League and the club's first in 44 years since 1996.
The clock ticked over to 2040 as 55-year-old English title specialist Robí di Lathamé was showing no signs of letting up with his Juventus side sitting pretty seven points clear at the top of Serie A
With the in-game Football Manager 2020 clock ticking past 20 years, a new challenge was afoot as title specialist Robí di Lathamé took one last gamble in a career that's soon to come to a close. With the new Football Manager about to land, I decided to move on from two titles with Feyenoord and joined Italian giants Juventus.
Our 20th season of this Journeyman Football Manager 2020 save saw us wrap up a 13th league title and our second in Holland with Feyenoord. We'd dominated the Dutch league, winning the title by a huge 10 points from Ajax.
Robí di Lathamé's 20th season as a football manager saw him lead Feyenoord Rotterdam into 2039 in second place in Eredivisie. However, the club's title defence was looking promising as they'd played rivals and Ajax twice and were well clear of both, only trailing AZ Alkmaar by a point with two games in hand.
I don't want to jump boat after a season as I'm keen to see if we can build something with this Feyenoord side. There's plenty of potential in the club with several exciting youngsters (and there weren't any other jobs going in the summer).
After winning leagues in Portugal, Spain, Germany and England, perennial title winner Robí Sebastian Jesús di Lathamé took a major challenge and sprinkled his magic dust across the Eredivisie.
Life in Holland had gotten off to a flyer as we led Feyenoord to the top of Eredivisie with a healthy ten-point lead over PSV Eindhoven, who had a game in hand, moving into 2038.
This Journeyman save has certainly been an interesting adventure. Having started out as a mission to rebuild Sporting Lisbon that immediately delivered massive success, we then went on to rebuild Valencia, fail at Cagliari, bring glory back to Dortmund and Man City. Not to mention international excitement with United States, Denmark and England.
