It is definitely important.

At this level with the amount of training possible, it would suit a manager who wants to play a particular style and not deviate the approach too much for each opponent. This, a good knowledge of the league and a good budget to acquire good players (and a manager who maximises this) are all key to success.

The amount of pre game tactical impact is considerably less at this level because there is less time on the training pitch and less resources for scouting and analysis. Managers like Guardiola and Arteta can utilise these tools to not only change their tactics game to game, but even alter thier shape in each third of the pitch in and out of possession.

Where a manager can also earn their money is making in game tactical adjustments moving players around or through substitutions. In futsal, (where I work) these changes are constant and at extremely high speed. I remember a Dave Anderson team (Harrow I think) winning with 9 men at Kingsmeadow. He was very brave and sacrificed any wide pressure to defend the middle hit on the counter, so there are some very astute minds at this level.

Having a great manager can only take a team so far if they don't have great players though.
