From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In association football, a manager is responsible for running a football club or a national team. The manager of a professional club is responsible directly to the board of directors, or the club owner.

The manager's responsibilities in a professional football club usually include but are not limited to the following:

  • Selecting a lineup of players for matches.
  • Planning the strategy, and instructing the same on the pitch.
  • Delegating duties to the first team coach and the coaching and medical staff.
  • Scouting for young but talented players for eventual training in the youth academy or the reserves.
  • Buying and selling players in the transfer market, including loans.
  • Marketing the club, most especially for ticket admission, sponsorship and merchandising.
  • Growing turnover and keeping the club profitable.

Some of the above responsibilities are shared with the director of football or sporting director, and are at times delegated to an assistant manager.
