FIFA 18: There’s a way of playing as real managers in Career Mode

Say goodbye to the annoying avatars

FIFA 18 gamers may no longer need to play with random avatars on Career Mode.

That’s because some clever modders have figured out a way to add real managers on to the game.

Tons of new FIFA 18 files have made their way on to Modding Way – a site dedicated to tweaking and improving EA’s latest title.

They allow gamers to play Career Mode as Jose Mourinho, Zinedine Zidane, Jurgen Klopp and many more.

Instead of the random avatar, these new ‘re-skinned’ models will take their place in the transfer negotiations and cutscenes.

Amazingly, the site even gives gamers the ability to play as legends who are yet to try their hand at management.

This includes the likes of John Terry, Thierry Henry and Francesco Totti.

Modding Way is a website that lets skilled gamers upload their very own tweaks, or ‘mods’, to FIFA.

Mods are essentially changes to the game’s original code.

These range from minor upgrades to the graphics – adding more realistic grass, for example – to completely overhauling core game mechanics.

The downside is a lot of these mods only work on the PC version of the game – so those playing on PS4 and Xbox One will still be stuck with the random avatars.
