Managers

Can Sam Allardyce Save Sunderland from Relegation?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Sam Allardyce is coaching a Premier League club. 

Yes, the English manager is back in the EPL after not having his contract renewed with West Ham United at the end of last season. This time, he takes the reigns of a struggling Sunderland, who have a mere three points in eight games. If it wasn’t for an equally unimpressive Newcastle United, they’d be rock bottom in the table. 

How An All-Time Great Manager Won Over An All-Time Great Player

In a rare moment of emotion, Cristiano Ronaldo revealed how former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Reguson won the Portuguese superstar over: compassion.

Really, it's not compassion, it's just acting like a person. You should be able to visit your dad in the hospital without work standing in the way. A lot of managers nowadays it seems feel that football is the only thing that matters. Everything else is secondary.

Can Jurgen Klinsmann Keep His Job If The USMNT Lose This Weekend?

It’s been an up-and-down couple of months for United States Men’s National Team coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

Following wins against Germany and the Netherlands earlier this year, the Americans looked poised to cruise through the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

A shocking 2-1 loss to Jamaica in the semifinal, followed by an even more bamboozling 3-2 loss in penalties to Panama in the third place match now has the red, white and blue faithful questioning if Klinsmann is the right man for the job.

Can Liverpool Snag 4th? Here Are Jurgen Klopp’s Major Challenges At Liverpool.

I like to imagine somewhere in Merseyside this week, Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp met at Liverpool Lime Street, at the train station, and had a cup of coffee. In my head the conversation was light and mostly not about soccer. Something like this:

Klopp laughs a shushed laugh at one of Rodgers’s stories about Jose Mourinho from his time at Chelsea, and then there’s a natural pause in the smooth, flowing conversation. This is uncomfortable for both men.

Rodgers: “This is a really good club, you know.”

Juan Carlos Osorio To Be Named Mexico Manager, Club Says

Brazilian club Sao Paulo have announced that Juan Carlos Osorio has left the club to become the manager of the Mexico National Team.

Osorio, a native Colombian, has coached at Sao Paulo since earlier this year. He has had stints with the Chicago Fire, New York Red Bulls, Liga MX side Puebla and various Colombian clubs. He is a graduate of Southern Connecticut State University.

Reports: Liverpool Contact Klopp, Ancelotti, To Replace Brendan Rodgers

It was a rocky three-year-long marriage, but Liverpool finally parted ways with Brendan Rodgers. Now, the Reds are keen on hiring a high profile manager to lead the club (most notably former Borussia Dortmund man Jurgen Klopp), and the immediate start of the search has seen Liverpool contact Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti. 

Former Liverpool favorite John Aldridge would like to see the Italian manager commanding the club.

This Coach Never Admits It When He’s Wrong. He Was Just Forced To In An Unforgettable Interview.

If you have ever seen someone in the middle of a crisis, Jose Mourinho’s post-game interview after his Chelsea side lost 3-1 to Southampton will at be once inspirational, unbelievable, and familiar.

Chelsea were the 14/15 Premier League Champions. Now they are sitting just four places above dead last. His team has no identity; it is in full crisis mode, and so is Jose Mourinho. Losing to Southampton made that crisis unignorable, and forced Jose Mourinho to finally address it after the game.
