Spanish National Football Team Looking for New Manager

The Spanish national football team will have to begin searching around for a new manager after Vicente del Bosque steps down from his coaching position in the national team when the 2016 Euro’s reaches it’s end.

“In life you cannot be absolutely sure about anything but it is my intention to continue until France 2016 and then leave. In my case, the federation will make a smooth transition and my plan is to remain involved in football and with the federation.” Spain’s Vicente del Bosque told the media his intention to resign in 2 years.

Pep Guardiola, Rafael Benitez, GuusHiddink, Marcelo Bielsa, and Athletic Bilbao’s Ernesto Valverde are all possible candidates on being the successor for Vicente del Bosque in the national team. (more…)

Mark Hughes praises Krkic for first Premier League

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes came in with praise for striker Bojan Krkic, who scored his first Premier League goal since joining the club in the summer.

The former Barcelona forward created a tremendous talking point in the summer after deciding to join Stoke, who have been widely known as a physical team, by looking at various options across the continent. Even thoughKrkic has failed to hit the heights many expected of him a few years ago, he continues to remain a highly talented player. As expected, the Spanish international has struggled to cope with the physicality of the Premier League.

He has featured in seven matches so far, but his best performance came in the weekend’s victory over Tottenham. The former Barcelona man scored one of the goals in the 2-1 win, but it was not any other goal after he managed to run through an entire Tottenham defence and finish with a lot of composure. This would have been the kind of goal Hughes would have been expecting from the 24-year-old, who still has a long time left in his game. It was not surprising when Hughes came in with praise for the youngster after the win that lifts the club into the top half of the table.

“Bojan was doing what he did in pre-season. At the start of the season it was a bit of a shock to him in the Premier League.We just had to bide our time a bit but he is ready now and the quality of his goal shows the technical ability he has.

I was really pleased with what we produced today. From start to finish we were the more accomplished side. We were always a threat on the break and had great ability in forward areas,” said Hughes.
