Yes, they removed it.
The guy in charge of re-designing the mode wanted to add more "RPG-ish" elements to the mode, but basically said it was too tough to make player-manager mode make sense from a story perspective (such as, how Mr. Manager is proud of Mr. Manager's play in the cup final, and is considering picking Mr. Manager for the national team).
He followed that up by saying player-managers were extremely uncommon in the modern game anyhow (Anelka is the only one to do it recently).
Pretty lame excuses, I know. I was a big fan of player-manager mode myself.

Thats crap news as i hate not being able to manage and play with my pro at the same time. For instance in player career its a pain in the ass to get high ratings for my player or even play a decent part of the game as i keep getting subbed early in the second half and even though i may have scrored a hat trick or more the player rating is hardly ever high enough until the 70 minute mark to get man of the match etc. If i was a plyer manager it could decide how the team is run and when to sub. i hate the lack of control of the team. Bring back player manager mode!
