Lupa Roma Hire Billionaire's Son


In a move that shocked every single Lupa Roma fan, chairman Alberto Cerrai today publicly unveiled the club's new manager, Antonio Benvenuti. At the age of 27, Benvenuti brought no previous management experience to the table but Cerrai deemed him as the rightful successor to former manager Alessandro Cucciari, who had left in mysterious circumstances.

Antonio Benvenuti was born in Rome itself on 11/03/1988, as the son of successful entrepreneur Silvio Benvenuti and famous actress Lucrezia Belardini. Having never played football at any serious level, Antonio learned the game from one of the many directors' boxes he owns in various stadia across Italy and Europe. He earned his coaching license earlier this year, and had been looking to make his first step in football management since.

Despite having had a number of more qualified, and certainly more experienced, managers interested in the job, Alberto Cerrai decided that Antonio Benvenuti would be ideal for the job, and described him as a very confident and wise tactician. Cerrai revealed that Benvenuti's desire to to succeed was a pulling factor, and his proposed tactical philosophies were remarkably impressive.

The young Roman signed a one year contract on a suspected wage of just over €2,000. Benvenuti was happy to sign for Lupa Roma and saw it as a stepping stone for future glory in the game.

Antonio Benvenuti:
"I am proud to have received my first opportunity in football management. Lupa Roma is one of the lesser clubs in my local city, Rome, but certainly a proud one. I dream of becoming the the greatest football manager in history, overtaking Sir Alex Ferguson and his prestigious company, and becoming the face of football. Lupa Roma can be a fantastic stepping stone for me to reach my long-term goals, and I will look to be very successful at this club. I have a very clear idea of how I want to shape this club, and I will set out to achieve my objectives immediately. I'm a born winner and I am confident in my ability. Alberto Cerrai will be more than thankful for my services once I have achieved what I have planned here."

Dynamo Appoint Librarian As Head Coach


Dynamo Dresden have appointed unknown Christian Schäfer as their new manager. The former librarian was handed his new occupation just days after former manager Peter Németh had been relieved of his duties. The news comes as a shock, as many had expected Uwe Neuhaus to claim the role.

Born in Radeburg, just north of Dresden, Christian Schäfer is no stranger to the club's historic city. At the age of 34, Schäfer has no previous management experience at a professional, or even a senior, level. He was, however, a librarian. Schäfer did not play professional football in his younger years and while he had no qualifications beside his coaching license, managing director Robert Schäfer, Christian's namesake, firmly believed that Christian would be the most suitable candidate for the job, handing him a one-year contract where he will earn just under €5,000 per week.

In a press-conference earlier today, both Christian and Robert outlined their objectives for the upcoming season. The club would be expected to earn promotion from the third division, given the strength of its squad and the financial power at hand.The club struggled to cope in the Third Division last season following relegation from the Second Division the season before. Dynamo Dresden are among the favourites to achieve promotion, alongside SV Wehen Wiesbaden, FC Erzebirge Aue and Holstein Kiel.

Christian Schäfer spoke of his delight in being appointed manager, and promised to excite the fans with attractive and inventive football.

Christian Schäfer:
"I would like to thank Robert (Schäfer) and the rest of the board for handing me this opportunity. I am very happy to be here now and I hope to be here for a long time, if you will have me. Dynamo has a very young squad of players with a lot of talent and with the right amount of work and patience, this team can earn promotion this season. It is important that we get the fans behind us qucikly, as the Dynamo fans are very well reputed in Germany, and we will look to do so by playing excitingly attractive and exquisitely inventive football. We have to earn their support, and we can do great things with it. To earn that support, we must work hard to be the best we can be, and that work starts now!"

Dresden to become everyone's favourite club. The new Borussia Dortmund or PEC Zwolle! Lupa Roma, however, sounds every bit like an aquatic theme park of some kind. Have fun, Benvenuti! :P
This is a great read!
See what I mean? "Billionaire's son" sounds so much better than "Librarian" :P
Twice the managers twice the success! Well, let's hope so. In all seriousness great writing KIU
I cant wait to see if the contrast in characters off the field translates into differing approaches on it! Anyway, great read as always mate, dying for more!
Considering the fact that Dynamo Dresden are perhaps the only well-known club in the 3.Bundesliga, I expect Schafer to do well with them
ooooh, Dresden <3 Good luck!

Verdinho, let's hope so :D
Vanderjood, thank you! :)
Walter, you can glue horse hair to a donkey, but it's still a donkey ;)
TheAlex651, that's the plan ;) thank you!
C.J.Lippo, thank you! As for the contrast, I can promise plenty ;)
Feliks, yes Dynamo has a great reputation but truth be told, I picked them based on their name and badge :))
InfraRed, thank you :)
