3DO have announced that Sir Alex Ferguson, manager of a little football club that you might have heard of called Manchester United, has put his name behind their forthcoming soccer game "Player Manager 2001". Sir Alex will also be consulting with the developers to help them out with tactics and player data for the game amongst other things. And as well as the new celebrity license, the game will also feature an all-new game engine, motion captured animations, realistic stadiums, and "enhanced post-match statistics" for all you Excel fans. Expect the game to appear on Playstation towards the end of the year, with the PC version due out in April 2001.
