Hi, I'm starting a new game with FM 2024, and before I do that, I wanted to fix a few things in the database. First of all, I wanted to put Zlatan Ibrahimovic as technical director of my team, but he is not there on the game.

 

If I try from the pre-game editor, even using updated databases, there is only one "Zlatan Ibrahimovic" but retired and with a different ID than usual, because his real ID is "142173". Even if I try to change the Zlatan "retired player" to "Non-player" I see that he then has no player attributes, characteristics and history.

 

How can I reactivate or reinsert the real Zlatan into the game? Why does FM continue with this annoying policy of retiring former players who can be used as staffers in the future?

You cannot, to the bit in bold.

 

Because thousands of players retire every year and it is pure guesswork at that stage to determine which of them are going to continue working in football if they have not officially announced it yet, and therefore leaving them as visible in the database just in case would just clog up the database further and make the game that little bit slower, to the bit in underline. I know he's at Milan, but the technical advisory role he holds there isn't in FM, and none of the existing FM roles fit his current position. He's essentially assistant director of football, and he's not shown the slightest inclination to be involved in coaching, so what kind of non-playing role do you want him to possess in-game?

Ok and there is no way to import in my database the player from another db? I need to reput in the game, cause in my career I want him as director, so I need that is a real non-player, not retired one.

 

I have to recreate him from Zero, or there is a possibility?

If you're playing in FM24, that is the only option, yes.
