It seems nearly every week now we pick another paper to discover that yet another top flight manager has been forced out of their club for one reason of another. But it does mean that fans and supporters can then once again get excited about exactly who will be filling their shoes and a whole host of potential replacements are suddenly thrown in to the hat. Over the next few years there are number of up and coming managers of which big things are expected, but just who they?
Last season former Argentine international Mauricio Pochettino took the reins at Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur and the club were hopeful that his reputation as a manager that demanded a more attacking style of football would bare fruition at White Hart Lane. Thankfully during his first season in charge Pochettino drove his new London-based side into the final of the Capital One Cup and this season Spurs are in good shape once more after a fine start to the season.
This season saw Jurgen Klopp leave German side Borussia Dortmund which left the door open for Thomas Tuchel to takeover. There’s no doubt that Tuchel has got more than his work cut out at the club who are extremely familiar with success and silverware. His reputation preceded him and he already appears to have proved himself early on this season by leading BVB to a run of 11 consecutive wins.
Earlier last month it was announced that Italian manager Vincenzo Montella would be taking over the managerial role at Sampdoria. Montella is a very well respected manager having already enjoyed successes as well as semi-successes as boss at a number of other Italian clubs including Fiorentina and an interim position in charge at Roma. And Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero will be hoping he can work his magic for the Genoan club.
During the 2014-15 season footballing giants Barcelona managed to secure the treble and it was former Celta de Vigo manager Luis Enrique Delta who was behind the triumph, and all on his very first season in charge. In fact Enrique had led his team to an incredible 42 wins from his first 50 games in charge at the club. But with such instant success comes great pressure for more of the same so it’ll be interesting to see what the new season has in store for the Spanish side.
