The English Premier League (EPL) is a professional football league in England which is the top tier of the English football league system. The league was formed in 1992 as a replacement for the original First Division. The Premier League consists of 20 clubs at the top of the English football league system, all of which have a manager, or pair of joint managers, sometimes given the alternative title of head coach. A football club manager is essentially responsible for running and functioning of the team.
He has the autonomy to make tactical and personnel decisions to shape the way his side plays football, coach and train players at the club, transfer of players and manage contracts of current players, press conferences and media management, scout for young and talented players for training in the youth academy or the reserves, among other roles. For these roles the manager will be handsomely compensated.
