It's more difficult to manage a big team because of the pressures that comes from fans

The most difficult thing about a manager's job is selection especially if there are a lot of excellent players to choose from

The most difficult about a manager's job is the thing he has to make a team and it means that he has to know well all of his players and try to find the ideal position for them. If he changes his tactics then again he has to try with different players or change the rolls they play.

When you're a manager of a big team the pressure is bigger and you have big responsability also.

Tips

Become a better listener

Remember! You don't need to hear every word, to understand everything in the listening.

If there is a word that you can't hear, think about the rest of the sentence and guess what the word is.

You will be surprised how much you can understand, even when you don't hear everything.
