Football Manager 2012 Free Players: The Ultimate List

The Ultimate List of Football Manager 2012 Free Players

I’ve decided to compile a list of some of the best Football Manager 2012 free players. If your managing a lower league team or a team strapped for cash, this page should be your go-to resource.

Although some of these players are old, they still have great stats. Players like Hernan Crespo will do the business in lower leagues and at a price of £0, what can go wrong?

I’ve also created a downloadable shortlist for you which you can grab at the bottom of the list, allowing you to import the list into the game and save you the hassle of searching for the players!
