The idea behind this topic came from this...
He's had another years experience at the biggest job in football
Our Manchester resident mistakenly claiming Ole's position at United to be the biggest managerial job in football. Obviously, we all know there is only one position worthy of the title. One that is currently occupied by a funny German who recently lost his glasses.
However, it did get me thinking. What do you think is the second biggest managerial job in world football...? Taking into account expectations, fanbase, history and prestige of the club, etc.
United? They have the fanbase and prestige, so they certainly have a claim.
Real Madrid? Even larger fanbase, and trophy cabinet. But is the club more interested in the players than the manager?
Barcelona? Same as Madrid.
Chelsea? They sack their manager every other year...
City? Arguably the most powerful club right now, but no prestige whatsoever.
Paris? Similar to City.
And what about national teams?
England? Comes with the massive expectations of a very unforgiving nation.
Brazil? The football's country.
I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this.
(By the way, I know you funny lot will say Liverpool Ressies, Academy and so on, so I'll go right ahead and say they don't count!
Boo me if you will!
