Growing up on American sports, I find it interesting that European football managers typically make all team decisions, from soup to nuts. They select players, manage the player budget, buy players, set strategy and determine the lineup. They often even scout players on off days. While it’s logical that having one individual doing everything keeps everything consistent, it seems a lot to handle for one person.
American teams typically divy up responsibilities, with some exceptions. Have any soccer teams tried the American model of team management structure? Would it work? It’s rare that the European model has success here - with Belichick at NE being a notable exception.
