Having moved into his 80s, Robinho Lazaró was as passionate about football as ever. And one thing that maintained that passion was seeing young players excel at the highest level. His young Paris Saint-Germain side delivered exactly that as they repaid his faith by lifting the French cup in 2063.
Robinho Lazaró wwas far from impressed with the old players at his disposal in his first six months as Paris Saint-Germain. So the Colombian manager initiated an earlier than expected player exodus in January 2064.
On 1 June, 2063, Lazaró boarded a flight across the English Channel and was given a warm welcome by an excitable French fan base decked in blue and red. Because Lazaró was the new manager of Paris Saint-Germain.
After nearly two decades of Football Manager 2022, Trebor Mahtal's throwback 4-4-fucking2 style led AFC Wimbledon from League 1 mediocrity to five-time Champions of England and four-time Champions of Europe.

A stellar start to the 2061/62 campaign saw Newcastle United sitting top of the Premier League heading into the new year. Surely they couldn't win their first English title since 1927 in Robinho Lazaró's first season in charge?!
The streets of South London again witnessed jubilant scenes as the players of AFC Wimbledon paraded the Charity Shield, UEFA Super Cup, Premier League and Champions League trophies to a growing fanbase attracted to Trebor Mahtal's old-school playing style.
After five years in Italy, 77-year-old Roberto Nascimento da Silva Lazaró left AC Milan on a high by winning his fourth successive Scudetto.
