The Rising Fleet Of German Coaches || The Story Behind
Hello Everyone, How Are You All? I'm @mahirabdullah. This is my first post in this community. By now, you must've seen the sheer dominance around the football world by the German coaches. So how is this happening? Just a coincidence? No. This is the result of a much bigger project. So, let's have a look.
What Usually Happens In Coaching Appointments
Previously, we've always seen in most cases, managers who had an illustrious career as a player, end up becoming football coaches. Some of them are a resounding success. The likes of Zinedine Zidane, Didier Deschamps, Frank Rijkaard, Johan Cruijff are the kind of names you're looking for in this segment. But on the other hand there are names who've been very good players but they've failed in their managerial career. Such as Mikel Arteta, Frank Lampard, Andriy Shevchenko, Marco van Basten.
So picking someone who has already been a success on the pitch is quite an easy shortcut for the top clubs around Europe. Even though the reward isn't always sweet. But coaching for a football team is an entirely different thing than playing on the field.
The German Surge
But now we're witnessing a different culture starting to grow, from Germany. German clubs are now more into the idea of hiring someone who has actual knowledge about coaching rather than picking a big name and getting some instant attention.
With Jurgen Klopp being the first guy in the show. Back in 2008, he was appointed by Borrusia Dortmund. Arguably the 2nd best club in Germany as of now. He was coaching FSV Mainz 05 previously though. But he made his name in Dortmund, the only club in recent years to win the league other than Bayern was Jurgen Klopp's Dortmund. Jurgen Klopp's Dortmund reached the 2012/2013 UCL Final. Outsmarting famous names, the German was on a roll. In 2015, Liverpool came calling. He's taken a scrappy Liverpool team and turned them into champions, winning both the League and the Champions League.
The Secret Behind
We might just be set to see a German takeover in club coaching in the near future
