I was asking specifically in comparison to Tuchel, who doesn’t compare much more favourably in that respect really.
An interesting point you raise nevertheless. Personally think that if he comes in and has good ideas and the right demeanour about him, it wouldn’t be a huge issue, but that’s a gut reaction and speculation. You may be right.
Just think he done a very good job at Dortmund all things considered.
Coached an interesting offensive pressing style of football and managed to maintain good results whilst losing three elite players in the same summer and using a lot of young players (went on to win a group containing R.Madrid and reached the QF). I appreciate his willingness to use and develop young players a lot btw because I feel like there’s a lot of good coaches that are not so willing, Conte for example.
The criticism I’ve read on here a few times is that his defence was bad but I that’s overstated, had at least a decent defence and coached a very good press.
A fair criticism would be he doesn’t seem to be able to keep good relations behind the scenes, I think he’s had major fall outs with both his clubs now.
Was he manager when Dortmund had that awful season in which they spent most of it pissing around in the lower reaches of Bundesliga? Admittedly before ending up in a much more respectable finishing position. Would it be fair to say that this was Dortmunds low point in recent memory, and would you hold thay against him at all, or isn’t it significant?
Falcao, Berbatov (who was in decline fair enough), Moutinho. It isn’t like he doesn’t have any experience with coaching players with big experience. Plus being able to communicate with Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan (if he still speaks French) would make the job easier.
Going the route with younger players is the route we should go anyway. I’m not sure Arsenal is going to be able to ensemble a squad worthy of winning the title to give to an Allegri or Enrique.
