PROFILE: Gerardo Martino, Security Safe Attractive Football Barcelona

PROFIL: Gerardo Martino, Jaminan Aman Sepakbola Atraktif Barcelona

When Tito Vilanova announced the resignation of directors Barcelona last weekend, football fans and the media instantly discuss the most appropriate figure to continue coaching sticks Camp Nou.

President Sandro Rosell, vice president Josep Maria Bartolomeu, and sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta is already pocketed the desired candidates, but perhaps no one candidate a 50-year-old named coach Gerardo Martino is emerging as a substitute Vilanova.

Tuesday (23/7), the official announcement finally launched Barcelona after the day before the appointment was busy-busy Martino Spanish media reported. Martino agreed to two-year contract at Barcelona and will bring together two staff confidence to Camp Nou, the Elvio Paolorosso and Jorge Pautasso.

Zubizarreta reportedly more comfortable if Barcelona tried to approach Luis Enrique, who are familiar with the culture of the club and never deal with Barcelona team B. However, one obstacle is Barcelona had to pay compensation of € 3 million for Enrique has just agreed a contract to train Celta Vigo. Rosell and Bartolomeu choose Martino, the man who has known Rosell since a dinner invitation on the sidelines of the World Cup three years ago. Third Barcelona officials finally agreed to negotiate and take names Martino for approval to the board of directors. Everything runs fast and as Martino departure from his home in Rosario, Argentina, the final decision was up.

Is Martino exact figures in the deal with Barcelona? Task team tackles one of the world’s best position is first trained outside Latin America. Since I started training in 1998, Martino spent five years with the Paraguay national team coached eight great achievement reaching the 2010 World Cup and the final of the Copa America 2011. Selepasnya year he moved to train club that raised him as a player, Newell’s Old Boys, before retiring this summer to look for a new challenge.

Much like when Frank Rijkaard, Pep Guardiola and Tito Vilanova was appointed as coach, Martino capacity to handle my level team Barcelona questionable. Martino warranty at least be able to compete with the Blaugrana season 2013/14 given Cesar Luis Menotti. “Do not be surprised if he hit a top. He made Newell’s as one of the team who look most attractive in Argentina”, said the coach, who also handles the Barcelona.

Martino training style is often compared to his teacher, Marcelo Bielsa. When Newell’s cruised into the final of the Copa Libertadores 1993 and then lost on penalties from Sao Paulo, Martino became the mainstay of the team’s midfield Bielsa. Martino later known as the Saxon “Bielsista” despite having a more pragmatic approach than the teacher. This is linked with Barcelona Martino. Before deciding swerved into the coach, Bielsa and Guardiola had visited them discuss the ins and outs of football for eleven hours. Guardiola impressed by the science of high-tempo pressing game and a dominant ball possession so dub Bielsa, “the best coach in the world”.

High tempo pressing game and ball control also characterizes coaching Martino. Only, the coach who is familiarly called “Tata” is often adapt tactics according to the opponents faced. Martino agrees with the principle of “the best defense is attack”, but to attack, the defense must first provide a sense of security. One win and three draws in five matches, Paraguay capable of reaching the last eight of the 2010 World Cup with a 3-2 scoring record.

Martino is known not hesitate personal approach to the players, including to those who are not regular players. Communication lines are always opened. Diligently he is always looking for the best tactics to keep the quality players that can arise optimally owned. In fact, as recognized Elvio Paolorosso, Martino also studied the habits and lifestyle of the players off the field.

Martino characters like the challenge. Newell’s current deal agreed last year, he without hesitation attacking Argentine football culture is considered “dirty” and often rely more on physical strength than other aspects. “Beautiful Football hated. Someone will say a bad running game and ended up 2-1, but there are others who feel it is a great game,” she said. Martino waffle prove it by bringing Newell’s, who finished ranked 18th in the previous season, became the team’s top league Argentina Apertura and Clausura. Newell’s scored 40 goals in 19 Clausura games, losing on away goals from Velez Sarsfield in the league grand final, and qualified to the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores.

Then, what will face Barcelona with Martino? Barcelona will demonstrate it’s still an attractive game and hit the opponent in the game, but with a particular emphasis in the rear sector. Midfielder Javier Mascherano is now working as likely to receive a greater role as a counterweight to the midfield. Martino penchant paying attention to detail will make Barcelona overcome their weakness in the face of set-pieces and aerial balls from the opponent.

One particular point to be noted as well. Martino presence will provide comfort for Lionel Messi. While still playing, Martino is Newell’s legend and idol Lionel’s father, Jorge. Martino and Messi were both born and raised in Rosario. Childhood, Messi had also entered the academy Newell’s before finally spoken for Barcelona. No wonder when Messi welcomes Martino speculation as a potential coach of Barcelona. “He’s a great coach and a proven ability in the Clausura. I love it,” said the star.

Now, to borrow a phrase Spanish mass media, world soccer football may be anticipating the arrival of “tiki Tata” from the Camp Nou.
