Long-time close friends, when Rivaldo said that Pep Guardiola could return to Spain right after this season, City fans should worry about it.
If Pep can help City complete the national “treble” with a victory over Watford in the FA Cup final, he will have a great season even if he stops soon in the Champions League. When the title is full, plus the favorite working time in a club for 3 years, Pep can completely leave.
Many people believe that Pep will come to Juventus to conquer a new tournament like Serie A. But according to Rivaldo, he thinks that his old friend will be repatriated: “Man City has changed positively since Pep took power and won. 2 consecutive Premier League championships, he has definitely become part of the history of this team.
This is a difficult season with Liverpool chasing, so City’s members have the right to be proud of their achievements. When I was playing with Pep, he always said in the dressing room that he would become a coach in the future. I never thought Pep could do so well and succeed everywhere.
Pep is always ambitious to become a coach and I can only be happy for his successes. Pep is certainly one of the best coaches in the world. In addition, Pep also has a special way to connect with players, expressing the nature will make players impressive.
When you do well, other clubs will pay attention. I believe Pep has many other opportunities and projects in the summer. Despite the satisfaction in Etihad, an invitation from the Spanish team can appeal to Pep. I said that because Pep never liked to be away from family and friends. Therefore, it is feasible to return to La Liga. “
Rather than remember Ferguson, who M.U should remember?
Suppose there is a match between M.U of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the end of this season with … M.U of Ryan Giggs at the end of the 2013/14 season, which team will win?
Yes, that is of course never in reality, nor is there ever a match between Pele and Diego Maradona, see who is better. So: conclude that “M.U after Alex Ferguson’s time has never been so pathetic” is just a way of speaking, but in fact it is meaningless, to some extent. How to know Solskjaer’s M.U is even weaker than Giggs M.U 5 years ago?
Shortly after Ferguson retired, MUes handed over M.U to David Moyes, and Moyes failed so badly that he could not stand until the end of the season (fired in April, Giggs temporarily held in four final rounds). That season, M.U ranked seventh in the Premier League final table. Rank 7 means it is lower than this season. But even standing at No. 7, the distance between M.U and the champion team was only 22 points. Now, M.U finished sixth, but lost 32 points to the champions, equal to the distance between M.U and Cardiff relegation team – the team that won M.U in the final round.
Losing a champion by how many points or 6 or 7, sometimes only specific numbers, is not an important difference. All of them only said heavy defeat: not only did not have the ability to compete for the championship, M.U in the last two seasons did not reach the Top 4 to attend the Champions League.
Answer the question “Which M.U” is the weakest during the “post-Ferguson” period, it is actually nothing to do. As long as that question appears (and indeed, it appears), it is already a problem. The problem is that M.U has had too many seasons in the past half a decade to cause great disappointment. And when that happens, perhaps the “criminals” are not necessarily Solskjaer, Mourinho, Moyes, Giggs, or Van Gaal. The cause of degradation must be more comprehensive, more importantly, instead of any specific coach.
In the six seasons after parting with Ferguson, United have four seasons out of the Top 4 in the Premier League – more than any other Big Six team (Arsenal three times. Tottenham, Chelsea, Liverpool are twice. Man City never stood outside the Top 4 in this period).
On the surface, one only notes that it is the “post-Ferguson” period. What is less well known: is the period when vice president Ed Woodward ran the M.U. Not everyone who is interested in M.U is “shaken” when CEO David Gill resigns in 2013, the way people care about Ferguson’s departure.
Gill is a “superstar” in professional football operators. He is also a member of the UEFA executive committee, FIFA vice president. He stepped out of the FIFA meeting room to protest against President Sepp Blatter. He once announced that he would resign if FIFA still had people like Blatter. Blatter’s story must later resign because of a series of scandals, everyone knows.
Gill is also a senior official of the G-14 organization (consisting of 18 of Europe’s strongest teams, now dissolved), which young people probably don’t know. He runs the M.U for 10 years. Before Gill was another “executive superstar”: Peter Kenyon, who was turned to Chelsea by Roman Abramovich in 2003. Before Kenyon was Martin Edwards, president of the United States between 1980 and 2002. Where is the important decision? most in MU history? It was Edwards who decided not to sack Coach Alex Ferguson in 1989!
While people still talk about coaches from Moyes to Solskjaer, at a higher level, M.U degrades because there are no great people like Edwards, Kenyon and Gill.
