7 temporary coaches who jumped above their heads

Ole Gunnar Sulskher started perfectly. Recall the other. head coach who was pleasantly surprised.
The specialist who worked before Chelsea only in the modest Milton Keynes Dons and West Bromwich Albion did not seem to be the most logical candidate for the position of Londoner’s manager, but Roman Abramovich had no choice — by that time he seemed to have already said goodbye with all the famous trainers in Europe. As a result, the Italian accepted (temporarily) the proposal in March 2012 after it turned out that Andre Villas-Boash would not be the “new Mourinho”. Continue reading

Would he be a champion, but the cruel pragmatist Kurban Berdyev shattered all hopes to smithereens.
The guy from the double had already cut through the game for the home team. He scored his first goal at the age of 16 very beautifully in the Krasnodar Cup game, and in the derby with Lokomotiv at the age of 17 years and 8 days, he became the youngest scorer in the history of Russian championships.
