Gerardo Martino new Barcelona coach


Recommended Posts

Barcelona have made Gerardo "Tata" Martino their new coach. The Argentinian, who led Newell's Old Boys to the semi-final of the Copa Libertadores, will sign a three-year deal at the Camp Nou, following Tito Vilanova's decision on Friday to resign because of a recurrence of the cancer that he first suffered in 2011.

Martino will be accompanied by his normal backroom team, including the assistants Elvio Paolorroso and Jorge Pautasso. It is not yet clear if Vilanova's assistants, Jordi Roura and the recently signed Joan Francesc Ferrer Sicilia, known as Rubí, will continue.

Had a lot of clubs previously, and not exactly a world leading manager - so guessing he has connections, in some shape or form. 


On the face of it, it would of been easier to pick a better manager out of a hat, but who knows, 


Jurgen Klopp would have been a very popular choice I imagine, perhaps the most charismatic manager in the game currently - would have definitely been my choice, if I was Barcelona.
