My dream is to be a football manager but I know it's a long shotWatch
The thing is, even though I still want to be a computer scientist, I just want to be a manager more. Not to brag, but I think I could be one when I am older. I'm really good at predicting scorelines and I make a lot of (mental) notes when watching matches on TV. I went to an FA futures course in the half term and we ended up doing a tournament. Each team had to appoint a manager, and I got appointed. My team ended up winning the 4 team tournament, and it made me think about what opportunities I could get when I'm older.
I haven't told my parents about my dream yet simply because they'll probably just tell me to focus on other paths. However, I look at people like Jose Mourinho and just aim to reach that level.
I want to know if there are any opportunities for people like me. I always hope I can get chances like these, but the fact there are currently a very low amount of black managers in the game right now doesn't bode well for me. I hope that in the future I can be one of the first (not the first, hopefully someone will be there before me!) successful BAME managers in football.
To reiterate, I'm looking for opportunities in coaching or management for myself. I am 14 (15 in July) and would like to get info on how to get into the footballing world. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.
1. The players you coach will have little respect for someone without their experience.
2. You are unlikely to understand the issues that a pro-footballer faces - or even if you do, they will not be convinced.
3. You will be in competition with a huge pool of ex-pros who want to do the same job.
Yeah, but I'm dead at football - there is no chance of me playing at a high level. I want to know ways I can become one without being a professional footballer.
Some are run by Burnley fc.
that may be an option for a way in to the football business in general
Start with a career and coach along it
work your self up and break through.
