i was just wondering how do you manage a national team while still managing a club, as all of my applications just get rejected and they pick someone else, is it because i havn't got a big enough rep or something. Also who are the easiest national team to get to be manager as?

Thanks

It depends on your reputation and it's easier to get a job as for example Vietnam's manager, than England's because the country's reputation is also smaller.

What have you set your reputation as, are you an International Footballer, or a Sunday League player, etc?

that's why you're getting rejected then, you need to build up your rep.

Well to manage a country you generally need to increase your reputation by winning major things like the top division league, domestic trophies and continental trophies (EURO Cup, Champions Cup etc).

To manage a country just select it when the job is open and apply and see if they accept.

You can be a manager of both national team and club at the same time. Just apply for either job and if you get it you can manage both.
