Plymouth Argyle boss Steven Schumacher has been flourishing in his first job at the club. He was coaching the U11s at Everton just four years ago. They went toe to toe with the European Champions Chelsea in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Chelsea ended up getting the job done in extra time winning 2-1. Plymouth has won seven of their last eight games while keeping a clean sheet in all their wins.
“Fifth month sounds mad! It’s gone so fast. I’ve really enjoyed this role, the first four months have gone brilliantly, couldn’t have asked them to go any better really,” Plymouth Argyle coach Steven Schumacher said. “It wouldn’t have been easy for the players when Ryan Lowe left. If a completely different manager with a different coaching staff had come in the transition might not have been as smooth. With me being there nothing really changed for them, we’ve just continued as business as usual.”
“It was a difficult decision having to speak to him straight away when I was offered the job. That was hard splitting up that relationship, I think it took us a few weeks to settle down but we understood that we’re still going to need each other,” he added. “I’ve picked the phone up to him a few times and said, ‘What do you think about this? What would you do in this situation?’, and he’s picked up the phone to me when it has or hasn’t gone so well for him. I want him to do so well and I know he wants me to do well so everyone came out of it good in the end. I knew it was the right time because of the football club I worked for.”
