Last year, French superstar Antoine Griezmann showed he was just as addicted as you and me and found himself in charge of Newcastle – talkSPORT wonders if he will take them over this year?

But which clubs should you consider managing?

Here, talkSPORT.com takes a look at 10 teams that we think will really test your skills.

Griezmann signed Kylian Mbappe for the Magpies in last year's game - we wouldn't be surprised if this happens in real life if their new owners go wild

Griezmann signed Kylian Mbappe for the Magpies in last year’s game – we wouldn’t be surprised if this happens in real life if their new owners go wild 1. Newcastle

We’re starting with a clear and obvious suggestion for a path to glory here, as Newastle has been confirmed as the most popular team in the FM beta.

After the successful takeover of the northeastern part by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, why wouldn’t you want to lead a Magpies team with a huge injection of cash.

Toon loyalists are counting the days until the January transfer window, due to reports they will have £ 200million to spend.

Eddie Howe is their new manager, but on many games he will be kicked out almost instantly.

So would you buy Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland or sign prodigies unknown to all around the world? It’s a big call.

Howe led the Cherries from Ligue 2 to the Premier League top 10 but has been out of work since August 2020 following relegation from Bournemouth

Staying in the northeast, we’re heading towards the mighty Mackems who, to be fair, haven’t been so powerful in recent seasons.

After Netflix’s “Sunderland til I die” documentary, it’s fair to say that we all have a soft spot for the Black Cats.

Two successive relegations between 2017 and 2019 led them to League One. So your job is to re-establish them as a Premier League team.

It's been a tough few years at the Stadium of Light

Who would have thought Hollywood would collide with Wrexham Football Club? But that’s what happened in November 2020 when actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney became co-owners.

The duo have finally been able to watch their club in recent weeks and have seen their home game against Torquay United.

After the game, they expressed their love for the Wrexham community, while also setting realistic goals for the club.

Would you be able to take the Welsh non-league side to a Champions League final?

Reynolds and McElhenney as bosses?  Could be a good laugh!

Faithful to the star owners, we have the very own town of Salford, the Class of 92.

Their rapid rise through the non-league into League Two hasn’t gone unnoticed – however, Gary Neville and the rest of the gang have more important things in view.

The current owners have also fired quite a few managers recently, could you be the one to lead the team to glory?

The owners of Salford City are hard to please… 5. Inter Miami

Another member of the Class of 92 who is making his way as an owner is Golden Balls himself, David Beckham.

His Inter Miami team, under Phil Neville, have suffered heavy defeats this season.

However, the dream is to make them contenders for MLS year after year and add to their stellar squad which already includes Gonzalo Higuain, Blaise Matuidi and… Ryan Shawcross.

Beckham call the shots, you win the trophies

Aperol Spritz in hand, tactics charts on the table and delicious food spread around you.

Being a football coach in Venice has to be an absolute dream – and now they’re back in Serie A.

They’re not exactly a star team, but you do get Chelsea lender Ethan Ampadu and former Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

But the view of the Rialto as you decide on gegenpress or tiki-taka? Without equal.

Oh, and their shirts are unreal!

Venezia is a good choice

Memory? The once massive German club have spent 55 consecutive seasons in the Bundesliga.

They were relegated in 2018 and are now in their fourth season in the Second Division.

Just like the championship in England, it is difficult to escape it.

They’ve finished fourth in each of the last three campaigns, but can you get them back to the top?

Are you going to celebrate a promotion with Hamburg?

The French side once helped cultivate N’Golo Kante’s talents, but in modern times has been a bit of a yo-yo club.

They had a longer stint in Ligue 1 a few years ago, but are now entering a third campaign in the second division.

Thomas Lemar, William Gallas and Raphael Guerreiro have also featured in their books in the past.

Can you put them back in the elite and challenge Paris Saint-Germain?

If you don’t feel like working at Wrexham in the National League, what about the Shrimpers?

Things have not been well at the seaside in recent years and the team that shocked Manchester United in the 2006 League Cup with a superb free kick from Freddy Eastwood are in trouble.

Two consecutive relegations have hurt the club and you can help bring them back to the Football League they belong to.

Will the Shrimpers ever return to where they once were?  Under you, they could!

Why not become a boss in Bilbao? It’s much more interesting than the traditional big clubs in Spain.

You will have to be an ace in the management of young stars, because the Athletic Club can only recruit players of Basque origin or Spaniards under the age of 16.

Talents like Inaki Williams, Iker Muniain, Yeray and Inigo Martinez will help you get started.

Bilbao also have a tasty derby with Real Sociedad

Steven Gerrard and the Rangers have ended the Bhoys’ dominance in Scotland.

You can fight back, however.

With Kyogo Furuhashi, David Turnbull and Jota, you might be able to fight for the title against your rivals.

Don’t lose in the Champions League qualifying rounds!

Beating the Rangers in the title will make you a club legend instantly
