Midfielders who made a name for themselves during their active career are being discussed as candidates for the next coach of Olympiacos, which broke up with the manager three times this season alone.
On the 18th (Korean time), Greek media ‘Gazeta’ introduced the candidates for the next coach of Olympiacos. Olympiacos’ favorite candidate is coach Gennaro Gattuso, who said an official offer had already been made and a response was awaited.
Coach Gattuso was a midfielder for the Italian national team during his active career. He participated in 73 A matches and was also a member of the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Most of his club career was built at AC Milan. While playing in Milan, he won the Italian Serie A and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) twice each.
After his retirement, he began his coaching career and held several managerial positions. He took the helm of his home team Milan from 2017 to 2019 after going through Palermo and Pisa. After that, he went through Naples and Valencia. He also has ties to the Greek League. For half a year in 2014, he worked as director of OFI Crete.
Gazeta’ mentioned Esteban Cambiasso, along with directors Jesse March and Bruno Raz, as candidates who could turn a blind eye if director Gattuso refused. Cambiasso, a former Argentine national team player, is a midfielder who has played for Real Madrid and Inter Milan. He was a key member of Inter who achieved the ‘Treble’ in the 2009-2010 season. 먹튀검증
Cambiasso has less experience as a coach than Gattuso. All he did was serve as the head coach of the Colombia national team. However, he has the advantage of being familiar with Olympiacos. He wore the Olympiacos uniform for the final two seasons of his playing career.
Another Greek media, ‘Sports FM’, reported that director Steven Gerrard is also among the next-ranked candidates following director Gattuso. Coach Gerrard, who was a player representing Liverpool, is also a world-class midfielder. After his managerial debut, he made decent achievements such as winning the league championship with Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, but his subsequent managerial career at Aston Villa (England) was not successful.
