Foreign impact, management from hell or the ideal solution

DATE: 21.06.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17

Recent appointments of foreign managers or head coaches are of course a two headed sword, some are good others are failures
 

The first Russian is now in charge in English football, Leonid Slutsky has taken over at Hull City. Italians, Dutch, French, Spanish and Portugese are known from before, for doing well, but few from other nations has managed to win anything or left after a short while.

Germans and Swedes are few but Jurgen Klopp is one that has managed to stay in charge for a while at Liverpool, his fellow countryman Felix Magath was more or less a disaster at Fulham.

Sven Goran Eriksson was a failure at Leicester and his time with the English national team, probably being blessed with some of the best players the history of the English nation, never reached more than quarter finals of the World Cup.

Other Swedes such as Hasse Backe and Benny Lennartsson never managed to "win anyone over" with brief and difficult spells at Notts County and Bristol City.

Norwegian management must be described as disasters, with four of them not really making themselves a favour coming home "sacked". Stale Solbakken (Wolves), Egil Olsen (Wimbledon), Henning Berg (Blackburn) and Ole Gunnar Soskjaer (Cardiff) never lasted.

The fact that you have a base of talent to look for, or you have money to buy the best, makes it easier to survive, but few does, coming from nationas where footballers are not better than those playing in your country at the moment.

Wagner and Karanka are two foreign coaches, together with Rafael Benitez that all has managed to bring clubs up from the Championship and doing it on a limited budget. Wagner from Germany, Karanka and Benitez from Spain.

Gudjon Thordarson was previously in charge of Stoke, Barnsley, Notts County and Crewe, and the Icelandic coach / manager is one who had spells in English football during almost 10 years, and by that one of the longest serving foreign coaches in English football.

Michael Laudrup is another Scandinavian with a life in English football. Laudrup was in charge at Swansea from 2012 to 2014, winning the EFL Cup while at The Liberty.

Another Dane to work in English football management is Jan Molby. Molby has been in charge of Swansea, Kidderminster (twice) and Hull City. Molby has not been involved in football management since leaving Kidderminster in 2004, and once said it was unlikely that he will ever return.

One to mention is Uwe Rossler, a German, who has also been involved in the English game for a while, currently in charge of Fleetwood, and before being manager at Brentford, Wigan and Leeds.

The first foreign manager to be in charge of an English club, modern time, was probably Josef Venglos. His time with Aston Villa was one not to brag about for the former boss who had an impressive career before taking over at Villa Park.

If Leonid Slutsky will be the ideal solution, time will tell, but he has an impressive cv, so why not.
