But there are genuine managers out there also caught in this vicious circle. It's far harder to manage to play. Outside training sessions and games , there are physio's to contact, selectors meetings, possibly calls with S&C coaches, individual chats with players.....................
At what point does a manager get to when it's actually costing him money at work and impacting his family life. A lot of people assume that ALL managers are responsible for the lunatic training regimes these days. But in a lot of cases it's driven by what the players expect.
And if the manager doesn't deliver that regime the players boot him out.
At what point does some level of re-imbursement for managers actually become a reality.
It's a complete mess. I'd hate to be playing or managing these days. Seems to be zero fun in it anymore.
