Why no superstars for England manager ?

What do all these players have in common ?

  • Beckenbauer
  • Vogts
  • Voller
  • Klinsman

They are all great german players who went on to coach their national team. The best dutch players, too, seem to make an easy transition to coaching – Cruyff, Gullit, Rijkaard, van Basten.
How come english players don’t do the same ? It seems that you are not qualified to be an England manager until you have coached Swindon, Watford or Oxford.

  1. Sadly, there is very little overlap between : the list of great managers, the list of england managers and the list of managers who were superstars as players.
