    In my first season I named the best player I had after myself, now he's the weakest in my team, I should really sell myself, but I'm rather attached

    I named my star player after a friend on top eleven who convinced me to sign him after we conferred on which player I should sign on a scout list.

    I usually rename players from Asian countries (not racist, I just find it hard pronouncing Thai or Vietnamese names etc.)

    Seriously considering renaming my star striker to General Admiral Aladeen, but I can't find any countries that sound like, or have a similar flag to the fictional country of Wadiya.

    Haha I also named one of my players after myself during my first season (last season) but I've used my african name to be discreet. I made sure he was one of the faster trainers so he wouldn't fall behind too far, but he kinda has. If I get a player who I think will be with the team for a while, I'll usually rename him to be from my country.

    I rename every player I get. It's only one token and it's a wee bit of fun. My squad is comprised of all my favourite Celtic players past and present. However, I have never found any players worthy of the names Henrik Larsson and Tommy Burns. Hopefully one day these legends will be added too when I strike gold in the TM

I see Maradona, Pele, etc. but if you go "2nd tier" like Bebeto, Careca, Ceulemans, Scifo, Deschamps, Koeman, Laudrup, Boniek, Milla, Alex McLeish, etc. I don't see those guys
    I renamed two players, the first of which was in the original post and the other is Geoff Hurst, didnt want to name any after my football team but thought it would be fun to change it to Hurst as he did score 3 goals in the WCF back in the year I was born lol.

    sometimes I rename players too

    if I buy a very strong player, and I know I'll keep it in squad for 2-3 years, I give him the name of a real Juventus player

    Just a personal opinion, but I hate to see names of REAL players in the game, just the same as I hate REAL team names. Wish people would use some imagination sometimes.

    In my early seasons, I once bought Carlos Tevez from the transfer list. As soon as I signed him, he got his name changed to an anagram of himself. He played as ZAC LE'STROVE
