Abstract

We present two models to estimate the relevance of managerial ability on performance and the managerial skills in keeping up cultural diversity. We use a large database on professional soccer in England. The manager can have an impact on performance only by improving economic efficiency or by limiting the organization innovation in order to foster the creation of organizational routines. Attendance appreciates home-grown and talented players, and dislikes cultural diversity.

Keywords: soccer, routines, managerial competence
