Have you ever wondered what it’s like to put together a championship-winning football (or soccer, as some wrongly call it) team?
If you’re a manager (coach) at the top level, the stakes are incredibly high; how you perform makes you either hero or villain with millions of fans and determines whether your team gets the next major sponsorship deal.
