Barca unveil new manager

Jul 27 2013, 4:46am CDT | by IANS

Madrid, July 27 (IANS) FC Barcelona officially presented their new football manager, Gerardo 'Tata' Martino to the press and supporters.

Madrid, July 27 — FC Barcelona officially presented their new football manager, Gerardo 'Tata' Martino to the press and supporters.

Martino was unveiled Friday after agreeing to a two year contract with the reigning BBVA Primera Liga champions, to replace Tito Vilanova, who was forced to step down a week ago in order to continue his fight against cancer, reports Xinhua.

The 50-year-old arrived after a successful spell as Paraguay coach and after leading Newell's Old Boys, for whom he made over 500 appearances as a player, to the title in his native Argentina.

One of the first things he insisted on at his presentation was that he was not going to alter the Barcelona style of passing football, which has won the club so many titles over the years.

"I am coming to continue an idea, that is why they have brought us here," said Martino.

"The first thing that I have to do is maintain the players' hunger to keep on winning and if we can do that we will have a lot of good years ahead of us and the second thing I have to do is to get to know the players," said the Argentine.

"We will remember the style of the club and the players that are here and we will see where they feel most comfortable, while trying to make a positive contribution," added the new coach.

Martino said it would be a failure not to win a title of some sort this season and was confident he could make Barca play even better given time.

"Every team has something it can improve, despite the excellence that Barcelona has shown and there is a lot to win," he said.

What Is the Minimum Required from Luis Enrique for Him to Be Judged a Success?

Sep 7 2014 1:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Luis Enrique has inherited something of a poisoned chalice at Barcelona. Rightly or wrongly, he is likely to be unfairly judged against Pep Guardiola's benchmark team in the same way that Tito Vilanova and Tata Martino have been. Both previous incumbents were successful in their own way but this is instantly and conveniently glossed over and forgotten. Vilanova equalling the 100-point mark set the previous season by Jose Mourinho's all-conq ...
