England's Golden Generation may not have reached its potential on the international stage. The quarterfinal was their biggest hit, but as individuals, they had a successful domestic career.
Some of them have tried the panditry, some have decided to try out on the training ground, and a handful have voted their arms for both art forms.
The seven players on the list, who have taken the lead, won a total of 82 important trophies as players, including eight Champions League and 35 Premier League titles. Management, however, is a completely different ball game.
Honorable mention will be given to Wayne Rooney, the only member of the Golden Generation
So, without further ado, here's how England's Golden Generation puts management efforts against each other.
7. Paul Scholes
The term of the eleven-time Premier League winner at second division Oldham Athletic lasted only 31 days. After winning one of his seven games, Scholes announced that he would leave the club in March 2019 as the board curtailed his ability to implement his style.
With a win ratio of 14.3% as a manager, you can be sure that the former Manchester United midfielder will have a chance of coaching sometime in the future. Until then, expect him to continue complaining TV about the Red Devils, if they stand 3-0 against Manchester City sometime this season.
6. Gary Neville
Much to the delight of his colleague Jamie Carragher, Neville's tenure as Valencia manager was an absolute disaster.
Questions were immediately raised about the appointment in December 2015 because of the lack of management experience and the inability to speak Spanish, the former Manchester United defender. Calls for his resignation soon followed, as he won none of his first nine La Liga games.
During his three months in charge, Valencia fell out of the Champions League in the group stage, lost 1-0 to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-final and dropped out of the Europa League in the second leg. The former defender was without a clean sheet and returned a profit share of 35.7% back to Sky Sports.
5. Frank Lampard
Lampard had a successful first season in management and narrowly missed promotion with Derby after losing to Aston Villa in last season's play-off final.
The former Chelsea star won 24 of his 57 games, which equates to a 42.1% win rate. His use of youth was praised and was one of the reasons why Chelsea gave its legend to her vacant leadership position in July 2019.
The Champions League winner had a difficult start to his term at Stamford Bridge and lost his first two competitive games. A transfer ban does not facilitate the 41-year-old's work.
4. John Terry
Granted, Lampard's former captain is technically not a manager, but still deserves a mention.
Terry was named deputy head coach at Aston Villa in October 2018 and helped the Villans defeat Lampard's Derby in the play-off final alongside head coach Dean Smith. It will not be long before the five-time Premier League winner takes sole responsibility for a club.
3. Steven Gerrard
The 39-year-old made an impressive start to his career as a manager after taking over Rangers in June 2018. In the first twelve games he remained unbeaten before this record was ruined by Brendan Rodgers & # 39; Celtic. Gerrard helped Rangers to second place in the Scottish Premiership last season.
The Liverpool legend also defeated his former coach in the second leg and gave the Rangers their first win against their bitter rivals since 2012. To date, Gerrard has won 38 of his 68 games as a coach, which equates to a 56.7% win rate.
2. Sol Campbell
Although Campbell had a 26.7% win rate while in Macclesfield Town, he was placed in a position none of his former teammates had.
Former Arsenal and Tottenham defender Macclesfield was named Table Two in November 2018, five points for safety reasons. Campbell lost just two of his last ten league appearances and led his team to safety to avoid relegation by three points.
1. Phil Neville
The only one who has again sought international success. Even though Neville was not a star of the Golden Generation, he has achieved more internationally than any of his old friends.
The former man of Manchester United and Everton took over the leadership of the English women in January 2018 and soon left his fears about lack of experience in the women's field. Neville helped the Löwinnen to victory in the SheBelieves Cup in 2019, before he led England to the semi-finals of the World Cup this summer and eventually lost 2-1 against the eventual champions of the United States.
Their World Cup success also secured Britain the qualification for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan. Neville has been named manager of this contest.
