Football managers should not have to play a peripheral role

It must be hard to be a manager, knowing not only do you have the fans baying for blood if you don't get the results but you also have owners to contend with as well.

Many owners know precisely nothing about football, in my opinion. Some are just there financially to support the club and make the important decisions.

I don't believe that it is fair that managers, who have perhaps played years of professional football, have to do exactly what an owner tells them to do.

Many football owners are businessmen only, they have never played the beautiful game nor do they appear to have much knowledge about what a team wants or needs.

It's tough to become a billionaire within the footballing business, so their money has to be made elsewhere. A football club is just an asset, really.

Take Andre Villas-Boas, for instance. Fair enough, he also never played professional football however he has had some extremely good managing experiences in his time.

 It was reported that Villas-Boas did not approve of four of Tottenham's seven summer signings this summer, although we aren't here to name anyone in particular.

Why bother having a manager who has to work with the team every week and get the results out of the team if no one higher up is going to listen to who he wants? A manager should not have to play such a peripheral role

It's beyond me.
