BELGRADE, Serbia – May 24, 2018 – In the Spring of 2018, four Top Eleven Managers from around the world were given the opportunity of a lifetime: to take part in a coaching masterclass with Premier League club Stoke City FC and ultimately live out their dream of managing a real football team. Check out how they got on in the #TopElevenAcademy:
After an action-packed first day that saw them take in first-team training and learning more about how a squad is assembled, the four Managers were back once again at Clayton Wood training ground to meet with more people involved in the day-to-day operations of the football club.
Following morning meetings with academy scouts and nutritionists, it was time for the highly anticipated session with the Stoke City Manager for some vital insights for their own upcoming fixtures.
Continuing day two saw the Managers put through their paces in rigorous fitness testing to see what the players go through on a daily basis, and try their luck in the hot seat as they attempt to navigate the relationship with the media.
