Really? You don't think people will be able to differentiate between Mess the player and Mess the coach?

Not saying you are wrong, but the football team I support has a similar thing going on (champion player and premiership captain taking over as coach with no experience) and despite only being an average coach it doesn't seem to have reduced his standing as a player
