Stock replacement candidate Vilanova at Barca

nou camp

Surprising since this announcement indicates that the disease in serious condition.
Now the question that arises is, who will replace him. Barcelona club president, Sandro Rosell, in announcing the departure of manager Vilanova estimate the new name will be known to most rapidly Barcelona next week.
Barcelona’s board of directors is expected to have pocketed a number of names that are considered worthy to be able to train the Blaugrana.
Assistant Vilanova name, Jordi Roura and Rubi, unfortunately not on the list because they are less experienced. Unlike Vilanova who participated in the success of Pep Guardiola’s Barca in the era when he became an assistant for five years, Roura and Ruby only had limited time in the Barca dressing room.
So instead of the name of the person inside, then Barca will likely be looking for a manager from outside.
However, they seem to be looking for people who are already familiar with the unique game style of Barca.
With the new season which begins less than a month away, appoint managers who are not familiar with the club and game systems have been established and the hope the new manager can quickly adapt, it is a gamble.
For this reason, the Tottenham fans can be a little bit relieved that Andre Villas-Boas – who called could be a surprising choice – may not be the primary target.
The most obvious candidate to continue the glory of Barcelona is the Dutch legend Johan Cruyff, as one of the people who designed the game systems ‘tiki-taka’ when he was manager in 1988.
However, Cruyff also known to have a less than warm relationship with club president Rosell, and there is a clear picture that it is impossible for the former midfielder is back and yet again to Cruyff who also seemed reluctant to come under pressure from management.
However, Barca can turn to a number of people who had come to feel success in Barca Cruyff era.
Cruyff care
Laudrup
Laudrup with the feeling of success when playing in Barca coach Cruyff era.
One person who participated in the team that successfully processed Cruyff gave victory in the European Cup in 1992 (with Guardiola and current director of football Andoni Zubizaretta) is Swansea manager Michael Laudrup, who is now a favorite among fans of Barca.
Michael Laudrup is one of the key members ‘Dream Team’ Cruyff success in five seasons between 1989 and 1994. He successfully brought Swansea won the League Cup first for Swansea and Europa League qualification 2013-2014 season.
Laudrup style of play adopted in Swansea is also similar to the philosophy of the Nou Camp, and its history as one of the best players in the last few decades the club will make fans honor.
However Laudrup betrayal by moving the main competitor to Real Madrid in 1994 may be a stumbling block.
Another name on the list is the newly appointed Luis Enrique Celta Vigo coach, former Barcelona midfielder is known as a talented player and a hard worker when grazed with Barcelona and Barcelona B team had trained in the Guardiola era before going to Rome.
The possibility of another name that stuck out is the current Ajax coach Frank De Boer same bleak Enrique, join Barcelona after the departure of Cruyff and known to be familiar with the system of ‘Total Football’ which later developed into the ‘tiki taka’.
So Laudrup, Enrique and De Boer would be a logical choice, but Villas-Boas, Roberto Mancini and Jupp Heynckes Jurgen Klopp could also be a strong candidate. And who will be the manager? … We do not have to wait long for an appointment as the club’s president Sandro Rosell, next week is a new manager at the Nou Camp.

Fast learner Quintana makes immediate Tour impact

PARIS (Reuters) – Watch and learn – that was the directive Nairo Quintana received when he was included in his Movistar team’sTour de France roster.

The diminutive, swarthy-faced Colombian climber did more than just that on his Tour debut, surpassing expectations with a brilliant three-week display to secure second place overall.

Quintana, 23, reached the Champs Elysees in Paris having won a stage and claimed both white and polka-dot jerseys for the best young rider and the best climber.

On Saturday, he won the 20th stage at the top of Semnoz after a final 11-km ascent – nothing intimidating for a rider who would descend 16 kilometers every day to go to school on a 20-kilo mountain bike.

“And I had to come back every evening,” he says with a smile.

 He caught the eye of Movistar manager Eusebio Unzue when, aged 20, he won the Tour de l’Avenir – the most prestigious young riders’ race.

Unzue was looking for Colombian riders for his Spain-based team.

“Finding a Colombian rider who climbs well is easy,” said Unzue, referring to the ‘Beetles’, the Colombian climbers of the 1980s.

“But finding one who climbs well and who is also a good time-trialist is more rare.”

Quintana, however, is not just a physically talented rider. He is also a clever one.

“The other thing that struck me is his character,” said Unzue.

“He’s got a lot of self-confidence and he analyses a race very well. When you listen to him debrief his day, you understand right away that he is not just a fast rider.”

Quintana showed during the Tour that he is a fast learner.

 Starting the race with the task of helping team leader Alejandro Valverde secure a podium finish, the Colombian found himself thrust into the role of leader after the Spaniard lost considerable time on a flat stage following a mechanical problem.

“Everybody in the team believed in me. Everyone helped me, especially psychologically, to achieve this. At 23, I was not prepared for that,” he said on Saturday, sobbing between sentences.

“When they asked me if I was up for it (after Valverde’s hopes were dashed), I said ‘yes, sure, I’m ready to be team leader but I hope you will forgive me if my legs don’t respond at some point’.”

 His legs responded well as Quintana finished second behind Tour champion Chris Froome of Britain in the stage finishing up the iconic Mont Ventoux, although he briefly lost consciousness after crossing the line.

That day, he probably attacked too early. On Saturday, he showed that he had learned his lesson, waiting for Froome to attack on the slopes of the Semnoz before countering him in the final kilometer to take the stage.

The win capped years of hard work, Quintana said, still shaking his head in disbelief.

“I worked very hard and I had the support of my parents, my team. A year ago, when I turned professional, it was difficult to imagine that I would be here today,” he said.

“As a kid I didn’t dream this could happen to me. I was taking things on a daily basis.”

Quintana has emulated compatriot Luis Herrera, who won the King of the Mountains title in 1985 and 1987, but he is setting his sights higher than the polka dot jersey.

“These performances give me a lot of confidence for the following years. In 2015 I could be gunning for yellow. I will continue to work every day to achieve that,” he said.

Moyes Believe Kagawa Quality

Manchester United’s new coach, David Moyes excited by the skills possessed Shinji Kagawa. Moyes heard many positive things about the Japanese midfielder was straight out of Sir Alex Ferguson.

“Last season was his first season playing in the Premie League. He’s still young, so we hope to continue to grow. I’m looking forward to be working with him and I hope he has a good season, “said Moyes.
Kagawa appeared last season as much as 26 times for United and scored 6 goals. 24-year-old player is also hoping to establish good cooperation with the new manager.
“We’re still new to each other, but I intend to build mutual understanding between us,” said Kagawa. [bnt]
