U19s Starting XI

Is there a way in FM13 to control which players start for my club's U19 side? I am running Bayern Munich and I was unable to find a way to do so, and I am not satisfied with the selections which are currently being made (yes, I know there are restrictions about how many non-German players can be in the starting XI).

When I look under Staff Responsibilities for the U19s, I am unable to change who is in charge (it's currently Marc Kienle, my U19s Head Coach).

So as an experiment, I sacked Kienle and declined to name a replacement when given the option. When the next U19 match came around, one of the other U19 coaches was in charge. I haven't tried firing all my U19 staff, but I wonder if that would be sufficient (obviously that would have other downsides).

I heard a rumor that in previous versions (FM12 was my first version) there was a way to either set lineups or request/suggest to the U19 manager who should be given more time, but I haven't been able to find an option like that in FM13.

In searching these forums I found a similar question for FM12, but no definitive answer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I've had the same problem when managing M'gladbach. It was impossible to change who managed which squad. I'm currently managing a team in England in the same saved game and now it's possible to manage the U19 AND the reserves.

Maybe it's a german league thing that you're not allowed to manage more than one squad???
