Although the most famous soccer games have always been the ones that let you jump onto the pitch and shoot goals, soccer management has always had its niche. In the ’90s there was the rivalry between PC Football and Championship Manager, but in 2005 a new game conquered the market. Football Manager has maintained this unrivaled dominance for more than a decade. Luckily, there are a number of alternatives in the Android ecosystem that let you manage soccer teams from your smart phone or tablet. Here are six free alternatives to Football Manager available now on Android.

Top Football Manager

Soccer management games on Android usually have the same features: creation of your own team, a few training options, a system of bidding on new players, and the option to choose simple tactics. They are all similar, and Top Football Manager is representative of this group. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just how these types of games play out. The gameplay is very entertaining, and the game has a nice 3D engine to watch your team play. [Download]
