Football is a business and the name means as much as a CV. So, Manchester United will continue to fight for Mauricio Pochettino, while at the same time they will chase the temporary coach to perform the job of the coach until the appointment of the Argentine.
After a failed experiment with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the management gave up on the former legends but turned to some verified names. Among them is Rudi Garcia, who has already been interviewed for the position of interim head of the profession.
Why is this information different from the others? Because it was published for National (The National), a newspaper from Abu Dhabi, by the renowned journalist Andy Mitten, who has been editing the most famous "fanzine" of Manchester United for more than two decades and is considered as the best choice when there is a question about Manchester United.
The fact that he was interviewed does not mean that Garcia will get a job, especially because he has not had a noticeable result for a long time. He made his last big success in 2011 when he brought 17-year-old Eden Hazard to Lille and won his first club title in half a century.
He added the Cup to it. He then led Roma, who were seventh and ninth on the table before Garcia, to be second with them twice in a row, behind the then untouchable Juventus.
Roma, Lyon and Marseille
There, he successfully collaborated with Francesco Totti and Daniele de Rossi, even though they were already considered as old players, who couldn't give their best.
Garcia, however, is primarily recognizable for his ability to develop young players. In Lille, it was Hazard, Gervinho, and Lucas Digne, in Roma Alessandro Florenzi and Kostas Manolas, in Marseille then Camara, and in the Olympics in Lyon Maxwell Cornet, Houssem Aouar, and even Memphis Depay, who was in a big decline.
He took over Lyon when the team was 14th on the table and he led them to the French Cup final and the Champions League semi-final after eliminating Juve and Manchester City. Against City, the three midfielders were 20, 21, and 22 years old.
Rudi Garcia is also a privately interesting guy, he speaks French, English, Spanish and Italian and is a great advocate of freedom of speech even when the media attacks him. When terrorists attacked Charlie Hebdo's satirical magazine in France, Garcia bought pens before the press conference and left one for each journalist on a chair.
"Freedom of expression is important." It should be said that Garcia knows how to present himself in interviews, which can be so important.
