They needed a tough no-nonsense German coach to handle the likes of Ronaldo, Pogba, Fernandes, etc.Unfortunately this is a proper coach, someone I hoped we may look at when Bielsa left.script script
Very similar to Bielsa in many ways actually including being modern tactical revolutionary and highly influential.
As a football fan being unbiased he is a very impressive appointment imo.
Away from coaching he basically helped build and shape the entire philosophy of the Red Bull teams, his scouting network and tactical philosophy is basically what Radz dreams off and what Orta wishes he could do half as well.
Shame they didn't employ a dib-dob
