Five New Terms coach Barcelona

Five New Terms coach Barcelona

FOKUS: Lima Syarat Pelatih Baru Barcelona

Search still continues, on Friday (19/7) and then Barcelona announced his retirement as coach Tito Vilanova Catalan club have had to continue treatment for salivary gland cancer which he suffered. And as one might expect, the attention immediately drawn to the exact figure will replace her.

Former Barca midfielder and team B coach Luis Enrique is the favorite to replace Vilanova, Gerardo Martino who also recently made the Catalans are interested and would hold a meeting with the Argentine coach on Monday (22/7).

Even so, there are many other big names who are called to lead Barca back decent success in domestic and European level on the 20013/14, Goal try to guess the criteria for the Catalan team’s quest for the ideal position to take the baton from Pep Guardiola and Vilanova who has led the over the last five years.

Vilanova so hard slap departure for Barcelona, ​​the Catalan club meseki have had in a while coach Joan Francesc Ferrer themselves or used to be called ‘Ruby’ which could also replace Villanova last season, but his name will not be seen to be the main trainer.

The end of July is not an ideal time to look for a new coach and there is also limited options for the Catalans. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas straight into a favorite for the position, but Barca have little opportunity to be able to bring the Portuguese man of White Hart Lane when his new season is getting closer.

Likewise with Michael Laudrup who has committed to Swansea success with the club from Wales in 2012/13 campaign. The Danish man, who has also been linked with rivals Barca, Real Madrid, has made a contract extension to stay afloat in the Premier League and understood, the assistant will now be disappointed if he decided to dock to the Camp Nou.

Luis Enrique had a situation not much different from having just extended his contract with Celta Vigo earlier this summer, but the former Barcelona and Spain star could still be obtained by redeeming clause of his contract worth € 3 million, with Barca includes Rubi as his successor.

Athletic Bilbao boss Ernesto Valverde is another coach who admired the Catalan club for some time, as the former Barcelona player, the name Velverde always called when Balugrana need new coach, but he had just handle Bilbao and has strong ties with the Basque so the move is almost impossible.

The former Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes and former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had indeed decided to retire as a coach and no longer optional for this case, while Roberto Mancini is still unemployed after leaving Manchester City this summer, but did not enter as a strong option.

Frank Rijkaard names appear obvious, but his last two seasons at the Nou Camp without a trophy makes Barca have to think twice to give him a second chance.

Then there is the duo of Argentina, Marcelo Bielsa and Gerardo Martino. Both are still unemployed, Bielsa has left Bilbao at the end of last season and the new Martino out of Newell’s Old Boys. Both are so important consideration, although Martino is more favored as preferred by Lionel Messi and be attractive options if Barca did not so use the services of Luis Enrique.

Luis Enrique has played 300 times for Barcelona and also worked as coach of Barca B between 2008 and 2011. During that time, Enrique worked very close with the first team coach Pep Guardiola and Vilanova his assistant.

43-year-old man has also played with the senior retainer beberpa Catalan team today, as Carles Puyol, Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Victor Valdes, while he has also coached the younger players when he became coach at Barca B. If Blaugrana want continuity and a good understanding of the club, no one better than him.

Valverde and Laudrup, both a former Barca player, but the bond of their work with the Catalan team not so long ago, it would be difficult to pick them. While Rijkaard no longer be a serious consideration after his success at Barca in 2003 and 2006, when it won two Spanish league titles and one Champions League under her care. This is a selection of Dutch men old Barcelona president Juan Laporta and Rosell did not want to follow the footsteps of ‘former’ friends – now enemies – the.

Martino himself has keutungan as a recommendation Messi, but the Argentine coach has not been tested in Europe.

Athletic Bilbao brilliant performance in 2011/12 reminds us of the style of play Barcelona is attractive. Guardiola even known to ask for advice from Bielsa before beginning his coaching career remarkable. On several occasions, the Argentine coach Pep revealed that will fit into its successor at the Camp Nou. In the case style of play, former Argentina national team coach is considered compatible with the philosophy of the Blaugrana, although some players in Bilbao was needed a long time to understand the complex ideas of El Loco.

Philosophy is applied Martino played almost the same as Bielsa, he was also an admirer of Barca game. Newel’s brought the domestic title and reached the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores with an attractive game. Playing style also fit.

Style of attacking football that brought him admired Laudrup Camp Nou, while the style of play Valverde and Andre Villas-Boas is also ideal to be applied in the Catalan team. Portuguese coach is fond of using Barca favorite formation, the 4-3-3.

So also with Luis Enrique, who like Guardiola, will continue playing the Catalans and the system will adopt formations in Barca B. Former Roma coach is a marathon runner and competitor in the triathlon sporting event, so the physical will always be awake to memipin every match at Camp Nou – especially after the defeat by Barca in last season’s physical condition and highly visible when struck down Bayern Munich in the semi-finals Champions League.

While Mancini, deemed unsuitable as a more pragmatic approach, Barca could even stalking successors in the City, Manuel Pellegrini, if Tito resigned earlier. Barca have long admired the style of play the Chilean coach, but it is impossible because he has just joined the Etihad Stadium.

Bielsa relationship with the media is very tense, some time Argentine man makes his own mental players dropped due to comments spiciness, like Javi Martinez and Fernando Llorente, both eventually left the club. The reason it makes Barca doubt will choose the former boss of the Albiceleste, who rarely live more than two seasons at the club he coached, and often leaving his team in a bad state.

Martino is much more muted. Rarely gets the spotlight when a Paraguayan national team coach from the local media, Newell’s former boss also enjoys harmonious relationship with the media that pose a good impression on players.

In this section, Luis Enrique was accused of arrogance when he was dealing with Rome and demanded his players to emulate Guardiola’s style of play, something that may be missing in Barcelona itself in the second round last season. Enrique is a popular player and coach at the Catalans, who indicated he would get more respect from the fans and the local media. It will make the players respect him, many players who’ve known him on and off the field.

Another name that will be competing, Laudrup and Heynckes both have a good profile to be a coach in the Camp Nou, is known for his good relations with the media and players. It reminds us of when Jose Mourinho was not an option Barca in 2008 because of the style of play and his controversial stance on the media.

Last seen three coaches in Barcelona, ​​performance management is not a primary criterion for choosing their Catalan. Rijkaard arrived at the Camp Nou without winning a trophy as a coach, Guardiola did not have a regular team coaching experience, while Vilanova was promoted from his position as a former assistant. However, they eventually succeed in Blaugrana.

Of some coaches rumored in recent days, Heynckes is the most successful (exception on Ferguson, who is almost impossible to train Barca). Mancini was also a successful coach, while Villas-Boas won three trophies in one season with Porto, Martino grabbed the title Argentina with Newell’s (also four league titles Paraguay) and Laudrup won the English League Cup for Swansea last season.

Luis Enrique may be present without the achievement of a career that was briefly at senior level, but his track record as a player and coach of Barca B team is very successful (he brought them to the Segunda Division) has to figure the most likely of all the candidates there. So clear is the reason, why Enrique is a prime target for the Catalan team receives the baton from his colleagues before, Vilanova.
