The English team has made headlines recently for the purchase of the club by a Saudi investment fund, which will inject a large amount of money. However, it will be important that you have an ambitious technician for the project to take shape.
Newcastle United won their last English league in 1927, the FA Cup in 1955 and the Community Shield in 1909 at home. In Europe, he won a Fairs Cup in 1969 and the Intertoto Cup in 2006. He has played the Champions League twice and the UEFA Cup or the Europa League eight times, something that the new coach will have to make habitual. We see which free agents could replace Steve Bruce to make the leap:
The one from Santander has not trained for more than a year after his adventure at FC Barcelona did not go well. However, in other clubs such as Real Betis or Las Palmas, he was able to lead an idea that did show that he is a coach to generate a competitive project.
The one from Vigo decided not to extend his stay at Granada after taking him to Europe to take a break that lasts more than three months later. If he could do what he did with the Nasrid squad, it could be interesting to see how far he can go with so many financial resources.
The Ukrainian has finished his first experience as a head coach leading his country’s senior team, which he led to the quarter-finals of the European Championship. He could not qualify for the 2018 World Cup upon arrival, but he knew how to redirect the course to play a good role in the continental tournament.
The Italian’s adventure in Juventus did not go well despite the conquest of the Coppa Italia, since he was a few minutes away from being left out of the Champions League, something that does not happen to the bianconeri since 2012. He may not be the best fit for another ambitious project, but he is a highly respected figure in the world of football.
The Portuguese did not end up having a good relationship with the Olympique Marseille board, whom he could not get past the last place in the Champions League group stage and left in sixth place in Ligue 1. With a better understanding, perhaps could come close to how well he did at Porto and Zenit. Let’s not forget that he is 43 years old and has a lot of experience for that age.
The Frenchman managed to lead Olympique Lyonnais to the semifinals of a Champions League, leaving out clubs such as Juventus or Manchester City. It is true that in Ligue 1 he did not have the best results, but during several stages he achieved good results.
The one from Viandar de la Vera left through the back door at FC Barcelona for two ill-fated nights in the Champions League: Rome and Liverpool. For the rest, he built a solvent project in which LaLiga won twice, although without practicing particularly happy football. He is not the most charismatic technician, but for a project on the rise he can be interesting.
The Italian is one of the coaches without a team with the most personality, who has led AC Milan and SSC Napoli, where he won a Coppa Italia, in very delicate situations at the age of 43. In a context of bonanza such as that of the Magpies, we could see his true potential being the leader of the dressing room.
The Englishman has been making himself in Derby County and Chelsea, where he did not achieve good results, leaving the team in tenth place before his dismissal but ranked first in their Champions League group. This journey made him mature enough to take on another project, in addition to being a great connoisseur of British football.
The Italian is the most coveted of coaches in free agency. He left Inter champion of Serie A after not accepting the economic conditions in the form of sales from the board. His work in Milan, at Chelsea and in the Italian national team in the most recent adventures make him the most suitable to lead the project.
