Out of the five major European football leagues, the Premier League is responsible for providing local managers with the least opportunities.
n other words, the Premier League has been the most global league when it comes to managerial appointments.
This has been revealed in a new RunRepeat.com analysis which looked at 877 different managerial spells in the leagues, during 2010-20.
The study claims that only 27% of Premier League games were managed by English managers during this period. In all the other leagues, domestic managerial talent finds a lot more favour with clubs. In LaLiga, 73% of league games were managed by Spanish managers, while in Bundesliga, 68% of games were managed by German managers.

The Premier League was also responsible for hiring managers from the most significant number of countries during the decade – 22. LaLiga hired managers of 16 different nationalities, Bundesliga of 17 nationalities, and Ligue 1 of 15 different nationalities. Serie A proved to be least diverse as it recruited managers from just 12 countries.
The study also mentions that only France, Italy, and Spain have produced football managers who have worked in all five leagues during the past decade.
Managers from Argentina, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, and Uruguay managed to find jobs in four out of the five major leagues.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
