This 29-year-old pro football manager trained on Football Manager


William Still is the assistant manager of one of the great French sides, Stade de Reims, before which he was the manager of Belgian sides Lierse and Beerschot. All of which is remarkable given that he’s 29 years of age, which for a professional football manager is extremely young.

Still’s had an interesting route through football, and Sportsbible recently ran a profile about how he went from coaching Preston’s U14 side to facing Lionel Messi on his PSG debut. Still eventually chose to focus on coaching over his own playing ambitions (he also played professionally when younger), but one of the things he credits for his fascination with this side of the game is the many hours spent on football management games with his older brother Edward. Edward Still, by the way, is himself coach at Belgian side Sporting Charleroi.
