View Full Version : Club AND country?

Hi im managing Spurs in my 6th season, been there for 2 years, 3rd in the EPL each time and this year we got to the CL semis.

Ive just finished this season and have just been offered the England manager job. I do really want to take it, but being a manager of a national team is pretty dull tbh and i dont want to give up my current job.

I have heard that you can be a manager of both a club and a country (which obviously wouldn't work in real life), is this true, and if i press accept job, will i automatically resign from Tottenham?

Nope, you can be both.

Nope, you can be both.

The previous russia manager (before Hiddink) did it for years i think, Im sure he was manager of Spartak or maybe CSKA and russia for a good long while. Not 100% though!

He's no longer manager of both teams for several months.
