Or a more technical profile can easily become a manager too?

What do you mean by "manager"? if you mean a team lead, then of course. They may be the best person.

If you mean a "project manager", then I would say they CAN, but the skills needed to be a PM are different from a developer/team lead. Having one set of skills doesn't mean you do or don't have the other.
