MADRID — In a country obsessed with the so-called beautiful game, there is a desperate lack of football managers.

In a report by the ministry of employment, published on Tuesday, it emerged sporting trainers was one of the hardest posts to fill.

It may come as a shock in a nation where everyone believes they could manage Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.

Others jobs which Spaniards are unwilling or unable to do included funeral directors and merchant sailors.

The report was compiled to help business leaders and immigrants alike to match up jobs and applicants.

The lower divisions of the professional Spanish football leagues struggle to find trainers.

Home helps were another 'black whole' in the economy with more than 30 areas of Spain hard-pressed to find Spaniards willing to take up this job.

Cooks, bricklayers, waiters, plumber and bakers were also posts which few Spaniards wanted to do.

Some jobs were difficult to find people for because they were more unusual like dog hairdressers, car washers, gravediggers, sheep shearers and plasterers.

Every three months the ministry publishes a list which allows employers to look for a local person to fill a particular post.

If they cannot find a local person they can get a foreigner to do the job with the aid of the state to speed up the process.

The list is aimed towards immigrants who are not from the European Union.
