Let’s take a look at the Top 5 players who became managers while they were still playing football in recent history. We have a list for you.
While there are several stories of players who decided to turn into managers while they were still active, there is a short Top 5 list worth talking about.
Out of the ones we are talking about for this list, we don’t necessarily need to have them be successful as both players and manager.
However, we will rank the ones who had the least and most success from 5 to 1 on the list.
We also won’t mind talking about different nationalities, only the fact that these players began their managerial careers when they were still balling and made the direct transition from the pitch to the manager’s seat in the same season.
The former players who stopped their senior career for a while and then became managers will not count on this list.
We bring you, the Top 5 players turned managers in recent football history.
