The team manager faces a setof very complex tasks. Not only he is the head coach of the soccer team, thus influencing sporting performance,but he can also have an impact on performance, by improving economic efficiency or by limiting theorganization innovation in order to foster the creation of organizational routines. The sporting competitiveadvantage translates into economic and financial performance; therefore the manager is a dominant voice in thefinancial viability of the club, too. We also measure the impact of cultural diversity: attendance appreciateshome-grown and talented players, and dislikes cultural diversity.
