The Greatest Football Manager Of All Times
When a team failed, the director, Chair holders, fans, yell at the manager in-charge. Why is it that if anything goes wrong, the manager is always to be blamed? When the club does not achieve the set objectives, manager is responsible, when the players are not playing well, manager is responsible, why?
Football managers are being sacked every season, but I have never seen a situation where players are being sacked. If you look at the top clubs in the world such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, PSG, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, and so on. It is really hard to keep your job for ten years. Infact, there are clubs that will give you conditions to win a certain trophy within two seasons, and the moment you failed; the manager is sacked. I began to look into the issue, and I realized that managers are very important in football. I understand how the effects of the coach could determine the performance of players l in the matches; coaches are like overseers that motivate, persuade, and encourage players. Coaches are to put things in order, make sure the mental state of the players are in good shape, happy mood, everything in the club is going well, understand his players physical and mental condition, and energize them
bring them together in love and unity to facilitate team work. All these things are to achieve the set objectives by club management.
The moment the coach failed, the club or company fail also. That is the reason the role of coach is vital and important. I could remember some years ago when Chelsea players were no longer interested in Morinho, they connived together and they were not playing well to the extent Chelsea FC were losing. After many matches the management gave Morinho to win, he failed and he was given a sack letter. Therefore, players sometimes sack Coaches when there are no longer needed by them and this is happening up till now.
