Top 5 Staff Members in My Club | Wage Below EUR 150 Per Week
After three years at the club, I managed to make a good system. In the first season, the budget was EUR 200 000, and now it is ten times higher.
OFK Belgrade is no longer in the Serbian Second League Belgrade, but one step further.
Of course, players have the greatest merit.
But all this would not be possible that I do not have the right people in the option – staff members. They are the “main culprits” for good results in the club.
As you can see, the wages of the experts are small.
It is highly probable that most of them would be in charge of Under 19s in a stronger league. But here, they have more authority!
It’s a joker from the sleeve which is used during negotiations. Below is a mini-list – TOP 5 names that can be of great help if club finances are unstable.
5. Coach – Shola Ameobi, 95 € p/w

Now I would like to hear your opinion in the comments below. Do you have an interesting name for the option – staff members?
