“(Sir Alex Ferguson) was incredible at influencing the momentum in the games and Jose (Mourinho) was great at interfering with his substitutes at Chelsea.” Neville tweeted.

Neville thinks Ten Hag’s understanding of in-game management is particularly advanced, showing that many coaches struggle to see the big picture from the touchline.
“One of the hardest things I found as a coach (there were a lot of things) was reading the game at ground level!” Valencia’s ex-manager said. “Sir Alex Ferguson used to watch the first half of the game from the stands to better understand the game. He even removed bunkers in the OT. So many coaches make submarines that we’re all like, ‘Why did they do that?’ we think.
“I believe it was because they couldn’t see the game properly. Most of the time you see the legs and bodies and not what is really happening. That’s why many clubs watch them to spot the details in the coaches box.
“Getting your backups right is one of the hardest things to do as a coach. Watching the match from a perfect perspective and with a tactical camera gives you an advantage in reading the match. In the past, managers used to go to the stands, but now there is a perception that ‘you have to be with the players’.”
