Beautiful Game Studios’ Roy Meredith has said he wouldn’t want to pay money for SI Games’ online footy sim, Football Manager Live.

“I have played Football Manager Live and I don’t really get why I’d spend money on it because it’s too deep for me to want,” said Meredith to Videogamer.

“I like Football Manager, I like playing it by myself. Football Manager Live is just a bit too time consuming for me, and I understand there will be a market for it but not me personally.”

Championship Manager 09 is out in April.
