Tottenham fired coach Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino lost his job on November 19 because of Tottenham’s poor performance earlier this season.

“We are reluctant to make this decision,” Tottenham president Daniel Levy told the media. “The Board of Directors had to consider carefully before making a decision.

Unfortunately, the results at the end of last season and the beginning of this season were quite disappointing. That made the Board of Directors forced to make difficult decisions. The team has many memorable memories with Mauricio and his associates. But we have to do the best for Tottenham now.”

At Tottenham in 2014, coach Mauricio Pochettino created a new face for the club despite not being given much money to buy during the transfer. In the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 seasons, he helped Tottenham race the Premier League champions to the final rounds. Last season, the Argentine strategist helped Tottenham reach the Champions League final, before losing to Liverpool 0-2.

But this season, Tottenham fell when only 12 points after 14 rounds in the Premier League, ranked 12th. The London team did not win in the last five matches in the domestic league. In the Champions League, Tottenham lights up the group stage. But the 2-7 defeat at home against Bayern Munich is still difficult to accept for the team leadership.

“Mauricio and his team will be part of Tottenham’s history,” Levy added. “I admire the way he coped with the difficult situation, especially in the period when we did not have enough money due to the construction of a new stadium. I want to thank him and the coaching staff for what they’ve contributed. They will always be welcome here.”

Pochettino will leave Tottenham with three assistants, Jesus Perez, Toni Jimenez and Miguel D’Agostino. The brightest candidates to replace the 47-year-old strategist at Spurs, according to the British press, are Julian Nagelsmann (RB Leipzig), Carlo Ancelotti (Napoli), Eddie Howe (Bournemouth) and Jose Mourinho.

“We have a talented squad,” President Levy concluded. “The team needs to regenerate and try to bring a positive season for the fans.”

Wenger joins FIFA – sticking with football in a whole new way

Former Arsene Wenger has just assumed the position of Director of Football Development of the World Football Federation (FIFA).

Joining FIFA will mean Wenger will stop looking for work as a coach. According to sources, after leaving Arsenal in 2018, the 70-year-old coach has rejected many clubs and teams.

Wenger had 22 consecutive years leading Arsenal, where he won 17 titles. He is also one of the longest-running coaches in the English Premier League.

Last week, according to the German press, Wenger had contacted to replace Nico Kovac at Bayern. However, the defending Bundesliga champion wants to make a long-term plan and has not yet appointed the main coach.

German newspaper: ‘Wenger called, but Bayern refused’

Bayern Munich is said to have turned down the offer to be the manager of Arsene Wenger, who for many years led Arsenal.

Bild said Wenger took the initiative to call Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, general manager of Bayern Munich on November 6, to express interest in the coach seat. However, Rummenigge flatly refused.

Wenger has decades of experience as a top football manager, including 22 years leading Arsenal. But since leaving the Emirates Stadium at the end of the 2017-2018 season, the 69-year-old has not yet found a new job.

Wenger always insists he is satisfied with his current life, but he doesn’t want to retire and doesn’t want to move to Asia either. He declined many invitations, including FIFA Technical Director. Wenger’s goal is to return to peak football with coach seats at top clubs like Bayern, Barca, or Man Utd.

Bayern fired former coach Nico Kovac last weekend, after a defeat described as “humiliating” against Frankfurt. According to Bild, the two top candidates as new managers are Max Allegri and Jose Mourinho.

Kovac’s assistant, Hansi Flick is currently a temporary coach. In the first match, he helped Bayern defeat Olympiakos 2-0.

Flick is likely to lead until the end of the 2019-2020 season. Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said: “We are calm and not under pressure to choose a coach. I think Flick is the right person for us now. He will work until the announcement. new newspaper”.

Former Bayern player contradicted Mourinho and Allegri

While Luca Toni advised Max Allegri to come to Man Utd, Lothar Matthaus wanted to bring him to Bayern Munich.

Along with Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger, Allegri is one of three bright candidates for an empty seat at Bayern. The Italian has the advantage of having won six Serie A in nine years and twice brought Juventus into the Champions League final.

Bayern currently have no head coach after firing Nico Kovac. The 1–5 loss to Frankfurt last weekend caused Bayern to fall to fourth in the Bundesliga after 10 rounds, like a drop of water.

Capello advised Allegri to choose Man Utd over Bayern

Veteran coach Fabio Capello thinks Massimiliano Allegri can match Bayern Munich but should wait patiently for the opportunity from Man Utd.

Bayern Munich on November 4 announced the dismissal of coach Niko Kovac, just one day after the 1-5 defeat at Frankfurt. Many sources in Germany claim that Allegri is the top target for the hot seat at the Allianz yard. In addition to former Juventus strategist, “Gray Lobster” also considers options such as Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho, Erik ten Hag and Ralf Rangnick.

Allegri has an impressive track record of leading Milan and Juventus for more than a decade. He helped Milan win domestic double in 2011 and then won consecutive Scudetto with Juventus. Along with the black and white striped shirt team, Allegri also has two Champions League finals in 2015 and 2017.

Capello also led Juventus and Milan. The 73-year-old strategist won four Serie A championships with Milan, once with Roma and twice with Juventus. Capello’s titles with Juventus were later stripped of the Calciopoli match-fixing scandal. But Capello and Allegri are still considered as two of the most successful coaches in the tournament’s history.

Man Utd risk losing three pillars when playing Bournemouth

Rashford, Maguire and Lindelof all had to be looked after by medical staff, two days before Man Utd’s trip in the 11th Premier League.

“All three asked the doctor to take care of yesterday and today too. Right now I cannot tell their exact situation. Hopefully they can recover to play tomorrow,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said at the meeting. foreshadowed round 11 Premier League on Friday 1/11.

Besides Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, Man Utd certainly does not have the services of Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Axel Tuanzebe on Saturday night 2/11. “They are not ready. Even after a team rally, we will be at great risk if we let the three return soon. But two weeks later, everything will be more possible.”

Maguire and Lindelof have been Solskjaer’s top priorities at the Man Utd defense center since the beginning of the 2019-2020 season. And Rashford is in high form, with four goals in the last four matches. Thanks to the sublimation of the English striker, “Reds” won three away matches. Solskjaer also escaped the scene of constantly receiving public opinion axes.

“In football, sometimes you need luck. On Chelsea‘s trip we won with an unbelievable free-kick from Rashford. Before that, the Man Utd defense had stood firm in Belgrade. We also There is a good game in Norwich. The whole team is full of confidence. Obviously, the gap from success to defeat is very small, “continued Solskjaer.

In early October, after losing to Newcastle 0-1, Solskjaer once thought that the match against Liverpool on October 20 would change the situation. Everything went as expected of the Norwegian military leader. Man Utd drew on a victory with the top team, before opening a series of three away wins.

“The preparation of a two-week break for the national team to give us a good game against Liverpool. As a result, the Man Utd player is energized. They are satisfied with the work and the results. achieved, “said Solskaer. “Every match is an opportunity to prove yourself. As a player, I always try every game to show the coach that I deserve to be on the next game. Hopefully, my students now have that feeling too.”

Solskjaer rejected Roy Keane’s advice

Solskjaer does not see Harry Kane – the striker that his former teammate Roy Keane recommended – is a suitable recruitment target for Man Utd.

“Roy Keane is quite straightforward, isn’t it? Kane or Lewandowski and our players are different types of players. But I like a striker who can finish half the chance like Kane. He’s one of the The best player, but Kane is a Tottenham player, “Solskjaer said on October 23 when asked about the advice of his generation’s Man Utd teammate Roy Keane.

Man Utd is currently ranked 14th in the Premier League. The attack is considered an important factor that makes “Reds” decline as they are now, when they do not have a genuine striker and have scored only 10 goals in nine games from the beginning of the season.

Before the situation of the old club, Roy Keane has advised Man Utd to recruit Harry Kane – striker that he believes will help attack “Reds” stripped. “Buy Harry Kane from Tottenham. This is easy, go and bring him back. Kane will score 20 goals a season for you with your eyes closed,” Keane told Sky Sports on October 19, after the match. Man Utd draw Liverpool 1-1.

Although he likes a striker like Harry Kane, Solskjaer still believes in the players he has. “Helping Martial recover to return will be a great motivation for Man Utd, and that will also help Rashford. With the strikers we have, with that speed and skill, I can hope. waiting for many positive things in the next few weeks, “said the Norwegian military leader.

In the context of the race in the Premier League is still long and risky, the Europa League could be another door to help Man Utd return to the Champions League next season. Coach Solskjaer therefore thinks that this European number two playing field is important for the “Reds” this season.

Man Utd are second in Group L of the Europa League with four points over two matches.

Alex Ferguson was accused of fixing the score

Former legendary coach Alex Ferguson faced allegations that he orchestrated the outcome of a Man Utd match and received a watch worth $ 38,500.

Information disclosed by representative Giuseppe ‘Pino’ Pagliara. In a video collected by The Telegraph, Pagliara said he sent Alex Ferguson a gold Rolex watch to “thank you” for arranging a match between Man Utd and Juventus in the Champions League.

Ferguson was charged with accepting bribes to settle Man Utd’s match results.

On October 17, during the Southwark trial, prosecutor Brian O’Neill provided a Pagliara recording with his colleague Dax Price, including the aforementioned details of Ferguson. Pagliara also asserted that Ferguson regularly receives commissions from transfers and that the former Manchester United manager only works with representatives who share his money.

“At the end of that meeting, Pagliara mentioned Alex Ferguson, the former Man Utd coach, accusing him of colluding with them to arrange the outcome of a match against Juventus at the request of the person Pagliara was working with at the time at the Champions. The League then thanked him with a gold Rolex watch worth $ 38,500, “O’Neill said.

Pagliara, Price and former assistant coach at FC Barnsley FC – Tommy Wright – have been remanded in custody to investigate allegations of bribery and corruption of English football since 2016.

O’Neill said that the most typical incident led Sam Allardyce to step down as England coach in September 2016.

Price and Pagliara assured investigative reporters that they had the ability to arrange meetings with celebrities in the football village to discuss the match-fixing. These conversations are recorded and displayed in court.

Among the characters mentioned were former England coach Steve McClaren, former Arsenal striker Nwankwo Kanu, coach Harry Redknapp, coach Antonio Conte, coach Neil Warnock.

Under Ferguson, Man Utd beat Liverpool in the number of English football championships (20 versus 18). In his career, he has 64 times against Liverpool and won 29 matches, lost 21.

After Ferguson retired, Man Utd still had a better face-to-face record with 5 wins, 3 losses and 4 draws. However, Solskjaer’s teachers and students were underestimated at the encounter on October 20. They are ranked 14th while Liverpool have won after eight rounds and topped the group.

AC Milan fired coach Giampaolo and appoints former Inter coach

After suffering four defeats in the first seven games of the season, AC Milan decided to find a new coach to replace Marco Giampaolo.

AC Milan started the Serie A 2019-2020 season badly. Apart from the three victories against Brescia, Verona and Genoa, they lost all the remaining matches against Udinese, Inter, Torino and Fiorentina. The home team San Siro so dropped to 13th

AC Milan has not been to the Champions League since 2014. This is what hurts the fans of the second-richest team in this arena with seven championships.

During the summer transfer window of 2019, AC Milan recruited Theo Hernandez, Rafael Leao and Ismael Bennacer. They also have many other excellent players such as Piatek, Suso, Rebic, or captain Romagnoli.

Excluding temporary coaches, Giampaolo is the leader at the shortest position in Milan’s history. In 111 days leading Milan, this coach spent seven games: winning three, losing four, scoring six goals, conceding nine goals in Serie A.

According to ESPN sources, AC Milan leaders are considering choosing between two former Inter coach Stefano Pioli and Luciano Spalletti. Another coach being contacted is former player Andriy Shevchenko.

AC Milan appoints former Inter coach

The contract between AC Milan and Pioli is valid for two years. He will receive an annual salary of about $ 2.2 million.

Having 16 years as a coach, Pioli has led Bologna, Lazio, Inter and Fiorentina. His best achievement is to help Inter achieve a 52% win rate in the period of November 2016 to May 2017.

Pioli is the eighth coach of AC Milan, since the club won the last Serie A (2011). His predecessor Marco Giampaolo lasted only 111 days after replacing Gennaro Gattuso, the coach was sacked by AC Milan ranked fifth in Serie A last season and missed out on Champions League tickets.

AC Milan fell to 13th place, after four defeats in the first seven rounds. They are really in need of a coach who can handle the crisis and mount the team in the shortest possible time.

Due to violations of the Financial Fair law, AC Milan was stripped of the right to attend the Europa League season 2019-2020. Since 2014, the seven-time champion team has never returned to the Champions League.

Mourinho: ‘My future does not lie in Italy’

Jose Mourinho has denied the possibility of returning to Italy in the case of a return as a coach.

In the summer, he has been linked with Juventus, Inter or Napoli, but has not yet returned to the coach seat. Answering TV program Tiki Taka on 29/9, Mourinho also affirmed: “My future? I don’t think it lies in Italy”.

After winning a La Liga and a King’s Cup in three years leading Real, Mourinho returned to Chelsea to win an English Premier League. After this period, his career began to cause controversy with a series of incidents at Chelsea and Man Utd. Since being sacked by Man Utd in December 2018, Mourinho has appeared more as a commentator.

Peter Kenyon: ‘Man Utd was wrong to dismiss Mourinho’

Former Manchester United CEO Peter Kenyon believes Jose Mourinho is still a top-class coach.

“If you give me the job of leading a big team and need to appoint a coach, the first person I think of is Jose Mourinho,” Kenyon said on September 26, on the sidelines of the World Football Summit. “He is intelligent, fit and very experienced. He is not out of date. I just think he needs to find a suitable club. I am sure you will see Mourinho working for a big club.” .

Mourinho has successfully led Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real. But when he arrived at Old Trafford, he could not meet the club’s expectations and was fired in December 2018.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer helped Man Utd win consecutively during his time as interim manager, after Mourinho was fired. However, the Old Trafford team leveled off afterwards. This season, through the first six matches in the Premier League, Man Utd are sixth with two wins, two draws and two losses.

Kenyon said Mourinho was good enough to help Man Utd regain glory on the condition that he must be told how the club works behind the scenes.

Viv Anderson: ‘Solskjaer’s mission is harder than Ferguson’

The former Man Utd player sees many similarities between incumbent coach Solskjaer and legendary Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

“When I joined Man Utd, the team was in the transition period as of now. There are many similarities between the work of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now and Alex Ferguson before,” Viv Anderson said. “In the time of Ferguson, the brand of Man Utd was enough to attract the players, and the attraction of football is completely based on the Champions League at the moment. If not attending the Champions League, Man Utd is very difficult to attract players.”

Solskjaer has been the temporary manager of Manchester United since the end of December 2018, replacing Jose Mourinho. He started well, with a series of eight wins, while helping “Reds” overcome PSG in the 1/8 round of the Champions League. However, after signing the formal contract, Solskjaer’s miracle disappeared. Old Trafford Stadium played a decline and did not have a ticket to Champions League season 2019-2020.

Starting the new season with a 4-0 victory over Chelsea, but Man Utd failed to maintain his form. They fell in the middle of the scoreboard, and will host Arsenal in the late game round 7 of the Premier League on Monday night 30/9. If he cannot improve his performance on the pitch, the Norwegian coach is in danger of being fired.

“The old Ferguson and Solskjaer were different now. The current job is more scrutiny. However, I know Solskjaer had a great job. He was aware of that as soon as he got the job.” Anderson continued. “Solskjaer has spent a record sum on defender Harry Maguire, but he still needs more faces. To revive Man Utd, Solskjaer needs at least four or five new players.”

Viv Anderson, 63, was a former England defender. He was Alex Ferguson’s first signature at Man Utd, when he accepted to leave Arsenal in the summer of 1987. Anderson devoted four years to the “Red Devils”, and the Old Trafford owner won the 1990 FA Cup.

In January 2000, Anderson was awarded the MBE (Members of the British Empire) Medal, the lowest level of the year of the system of royal titles. Mr. Ferguson was twice awarded a medal, in 1985 and 1995. The highest level of the former Scottish coach was the CBE medal (British Empire Commander). Earlier, he was awarded the ODE (British Imperial Officer) Medal. Both are higher than MBE.

Solskjaer: ‘Man Utd is building the foundation’

Man Utd coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that young players are the foundation for the team revival.

“You learn a lot more when you use young players,” he told Sky Sport. “You want them to come on and express themselves, so you have a platform to rise. I think that has been successful against Astana. I know that young players sometimes feel pressure, but they are able to. “Of course, we have to protect them, of course we have to protect them, find the right time to bring them on the pitch. And you have to give them instructions behind the scenes as well.”

Adult players from the Man Utd academy, such as Mason Greenwood, Angel Gomes or Tahith Chong, were all featured in a 1-0 win over Astana in the Europa League on September 21. Marcus Rashford also started, but Greenwood was the one who left the mark when scoring the only goal of the match. The 17-year-old striker became the youngest player to score for Man Utd in the European arena. Therefore, coach Solskjaer promises to continue to give opportunities to young players in the domestic arena.

“Young players are almost ready to play in the Premier League,” he said. “That’s why they trained with us, and they practiced very well. You will see young players often in the Europa League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, or some part of the Premier League. If we play well in the Europa League, we will have a chance to win the championship. In the early stages of the group stage, we can take some risks, and give opportunities to young players. it’s time for them to show their ability, to see if they are ready to play in the Premier League. “

The 46-year-old military leader also stressed that because of not using many young players, Man Utd lowered the target. “Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe are young, we can develop many things. The foundation is being built from young players,” he said. “I want Man Utd to return to his position. Of course, the Premier League is different now, Man City and Liverpool last season played very well, and we are in the restart phase. Many players have gone and have. “We have a number of injured players, but it’s an opportunity for young players, and to see if I can make the best use of them.”
