I think Macha only fulfilled one of those two obligations.
Those are my thoughts aswell.
Really, I didn't think that Macha was a great manager. He made alot of decisions that I really wasn't sure about. Sure you can point to the team's success, but come on - you can't give him the credit for what the team does on the field. The credit I will give him though, is that he has had to deal with Bradley in a professional way, and get these young guys to believe.
