GUINNESS FOOTBALL MANAGER was launched in August by Italian footballer and Champion League winning manager, Roberto Di Matteo, when he visited Uganda.  Each week, Di Matteo will select his very own ‘Player Made of More’ – the player he believes has made the most significant contribution in that week’s matches and any managers with that player in their fantasy team, will be awarded extra points. This week’s ‘Player made of More’ was Fernando Torres who had a good weekend on the field. His all-round display, in which he set up the first goal for Chelsea and was capped off by a well-deserved last-minute winner, silenced his critics after struggling with his form recently.
