The Value of Managers

Ok so, I was snooping around Red Cafe earlier to see if there was any undercurrent of support for Solskjaer being replaced by Benitez, and I came across a thread that I thought was possibly worth of some discussion. Here’s a link to the thread:

So ok, managers typically cost less and are paid less than players. That’s a given. But you get a manager like Benitez, and he’s worth far more to the team than any individual player. It’s curious that this isn’t reflected in contracts and approximate value.

 

Are managers undervalued in general? I know they all do very well out of all of this regardless, so I’m not trying to drum up sympathy, but I thought it was an interesting point. Would you choose any single player in our team over and above Benitez? I wouldn’t.
