Another point for you to note is the fact that for Juventus and Brazilian clubs, you will have to create a new save. Players usually look for a new name fix because FM22 doesn’t have the updated player and club names. This is because all the licensing is currently with FIFA and PES.

Warning: You should remember that this is not an official fix for the name error. So, beware of all the information you share as well as the downloads you make for the same.
