Yeah I didn't think of that, could well be! Though still seems harsh considering he knew what he signed up for.
I'm managing Maidstone in the conference south, I managed to employ an assistant manager with pretty good fitness coaching for that level (3.5 stars). That said, I have a player on loan from Southend who has spent the entire season moaning about the standard of fitness coaching, even though it's by far the best part of my training setup. Here's some screens. Is this a bug? Is 3.5 stars really not good enough? If he came from a bigger club I'd be more inclined to understand.
