I just saw when I was looking through my brum best 11 history that lee bowyer is now manager of yeovil town, with 19 tactical attribute. I was wondering if any of you guys have gotten a long way into a save and witnessed one of your best players become a prominent manager

sorry but can't remember which season, but Zola became an outstanding manager. Man management, tactical, everything was excellent. Only found out when i tried to find out why kept losin to the git lol.

But I havent really had any of my own players become good managers, just excellent coachs so far, but so far in theyre regens.

Henry became an amazing manager at Fiorentina, something like a 70% win ratio after 2 seasons as manager

Leighton O'brien in the US. He was a great Center Mid for my old club, when I sacked my Asst. Manager and put an advert up, he applied for the job and had some pretty good stats too.

I reached 2018 in my last game and Rio Ferdinand became Aston Villa manager and did a pretty good job until a new board took over and they sacked him in favour of another ex-player of mine Juan Riquelme who was my ***. Manager at the time.

Players that weren't mine but I remember getting big jobs were Ronaldinho being Brazil manager and Drogba becoming Ivory Coast Manager.
