Large-scale reinforcement under the new owner

We need time to find the optimal solution for the new system

・Ownership changed from Abramovich to American capital, and there was a reorganization of the front that accompanied that, so it was a little late in the transfer market. However, after the new system began to move, a large-scale reinforcement was developed with a large-scale behavior in lieu of greetings from the new owner. After winning Sterling, Koulibaly, and Cucurella, they welcomed Fofana, Zakaria, and Aubameyang at the last minute. Including 18-year-old talent Chukwuemeka, the summer transfer fee totaled over £250m, the highest in the Premier League.

・Cucurella and Koulibaly, who were acquired before the opening, have certainly improved the quality of their build-ups and possessions, and Sterling has demonstrated his presence in the final third, but the team has struggled with 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses since the opening. In addition, Tuchel, who was forced to deal with tactical measures that had lost his balance due to Kante’s injury and withdrawal, was dismissed by surprise after the defeat against Dinamo Zagreb (CL). Inviting Potter, who was in charge of Brighton on behalf of Tuchel, to make a comeback.

(Date of birth)May 20, 1975 (47)

・British version of Guardiol who researches and incorporates cutting-edge tactical styles, boasting the top level in Europe when it comes to constructing build-ups from their own half.

・Last season, which aimed at and functioned football that emphasized possession, led the club to 9th place, the best in the club’s history.

・He believes that music and art have a positive impact on football, and during his time in Östersund, he rapped in front of 1,600 spectators.
