Most football clubs manager has been quite successful when it comes to generating revenue for their club but they are not good in wining trophies. However, some managers have also lost their prime in winning trophies but are very good in making profit for the club.
These kinds of managers usually have a long spare of lock in buying and selling of players. An unknown player can be bought from a lower division or from a less popular club side with a very little amount of money. The player will later be established as a very good and renowned player. At the time the player becomes popular, the club sales the player to another club that is interested in the player at a very exorbitant price.
However, this kind of managers often have a quality team that plays above average but often lack the character to win trophies. They are always under pressure from fans to deliver, but the board and major shareholders of the club feel quite comfortable with the situation for profit motive.
The fans always clamour for buying of established players. But come to think of it, If the individual players are talented and the team perform above average, isn’t there chances to win trophies? But how long will it take? The fans would ask.
Research question: How can a club that always make profit but has a long spare of winning trophies survive?
