Eight Coaches Who Are Smokers

There is an age old saying that manager’s should lead by examples when it comes to team environment, but what does one say when the manager isn’t exactly portraying the right picture to his players?  Here are a few managers that were known enjoy a few cigarettes from time to time!   

Click through the gallery above to see eight managers who have been spotted smoking.

Gone are the days where football players and managers could get away with doing things they wanted to do in public without some backlash directed at them, and this is probably why many of these coaches above aren’t pictured too often with a smoke in the hand.

It seems that in the 80’s and 90’s having a cigarette was a norm before, after and even during a game, but did it portray a good message to younger players?

We cannot confirm if these coaches do smoke every single day, but they have been spotted having a drag on more than one occasion. Even Cape Town City's Eric Tinkler is known to enjoy a cigarette after training. 

Did you know that these coaches were all smokers?
