Real Football: Manager Edition 2009 is an updated version of the original Real Football Manager game released a year prior. It is based on the 2008/2009 season and has updated teams and players for the new season. Like in its predecessor it has teams from the top two leagues from five European countries: England, Italy, Spain, France and Germany. It has licensed player names but not all the real team names. The game's features are largely identical to the original game but the interface has been simplified to make it easier to jump into the game. There is now an option to skip matches, one half at a time. The game also has an option to export teams to Real Football 2009.
