Just came across this on another site and though it was fun. Some of today's managers when they were players, barely recognisable. Who are they?

#1

#2

#3

#4

#5

#6

#7

#8

#9

#10

I got 6/10 (1, 2, 5, 7, 8 and 9 I found easy)

For a clue, all but 3, 4 and 10 either are or have been managers in the Premier League. Probably why I didn't get those ones at first although kicking myself about 3!

Just found the forum you took this from - No 9 just doesn't look right to me, for some reason!

No 10 is hard to work out without the present day stupid 'tache, although the clue is in the club shirt I guess.

Really? 9 I got almost immediately along with 8 (probably for obvious reasons...)

No 19 is clearly Big Phil Scolari.

No 20 looks familiar. Think

No not Pim Verbeek. It is a current international manager however.

17: Shteve McClaren?

Can't believe I was thinking Megson for that for ages, then thought about other gingers in management and it dawned on me! Clearly Shtevey - played for Hull too of course!

I'll have a stab at the first 10

1 - Allardyce, that's a definite.
2 - Ancelotti
3 - Fabio Capello
4 - Do not have a clue
5 - SAF
6 - Has to be Davie Moyes, played with Celtic obviously and is a ginger.
7 - Harry Redknapp, hasn't changed much, apart from some facial scars after that car-crash
8 - Struggled with this one initially, but the lips for me gave it away - it's Wenger.
9 - Is that Mourinho? roflmao
10 - Don't know.

All correct Andrew and yes 20 is Trappatoni and 17 is Mclaren (I thought Strachan at first).

4 had me stumped until I found the answers - think of a recently-departed coach of a major European nation currently in national team turmoil...

It still doesn't look like Mourinho to me! It's the obvious choice though, given the posy fancy-boy look.

10 needs the tache in place to be obvious! lol
