23 June 2014 – The annual survey conducted by our English member organisation LMA (League Managers Association) together with Castrol, its Official Performance Partner, has managers and head coaches from England’s top four tiers, as well as their counterparts from almost 20 European leagues, share their views on current issues which affect the modern game.
The findings have been summarised in a comprehensive, 56-pages report (The LMA’s Annual Castrol European Managers & Coaches Survery 2014) and are now available for download.
