  • As far as soap operas go, the soccer managerial merry-go-round is not that entertaining » Inside Ireland
    particular drama with apathy and boredom Cult of the Manager I ve always struggled with the cult of the manager that s become so all pervading in football Such obsession with the managerial figurehead is unique to the round ball game and flies in the face of all logic regarding the contribution these guys actually make In modern football the gaffer is anointed with an almost demi god status and receives universal acclaim for everything positive that happens at his club Granted the manager who also gets slated whenever results go awry but the excessive focus seems misplaced if not downright bizarre It is often argued that the successful careers of Roy Keane Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville for example derive not so much from their own talent and work rate important as these are but the fact that they were fortunate enough to play in a team managed by the managerial genius that is Alex Ferguson Alex Ferguson left Man United with 13 league titles two Champions League crowns five FA Cups and four League Cups Otherwise sane people seem to genuinely believe this assertion i e that it is the manager s influence that is paramount Equally the campaign to have Mourinho installed as Man United boss stems from a perception that the Portuguese coach is a master tactician that he is a guru uniquely placed to lead the Red Devils revival Never mind that Mourinho has never kicked a ball in anger at the highest level or that he seems to have a peerless ability to rub people up the wrong way I don t get it These coaches are undoubtedly intelligent men at the pinnacle of their profession but their influence is tremendously overstated Does this cult in other sports This bizarre cult doesn t exist in other sports While acknowledging the intrinsic part he played no boxing fan would credit Angelo Dundee as being the man responsible for Muhammad Ali s success for example Most sports seem to have got the balance right Look at cricket rugby or the GAA as case studies In other codes the head coach is deemed to play an important part in his side s success but that s all His her role is peripheral marginal and secondary to the on field participants And yet the football manager receives most of the plaudits whenever his club wins trophies The same principle applies in football though It is players that ultimately generate success not the manager Equilibrium needs to be restored It can be argued that the influence of a soccer manager is actually less than the head coach in other sports given that they often don t do any real coaching Consider the job description of an elite football manager in the modern game Rather than improving players their role increasingly involves selection and spending the cheque books of billionaire benefactors Only soccer seems to cultivate the cult of the manager Nevertheless football managers are venerated like never before Some
