Cherno Samba: Championship Manager legend retires

BBC: Cherno Samba - an unknown name to many but a legend to tens of thousands of people across the world who have never seen him play.
On Monday, the former England Under-20 international announced his retirement from professional football after failing to recover from injury.

"I hope people remember me in terms of my playing career," the 29-year-old told BBC World Service Sport.

Unfortunately for Samba, they won't. He came to fame after being popularised in the Championship Manager computer game, namely the 2001-02 edition. His potential stats made him a world beater in the game.

The story is too old to be commented.
