Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino has no affectionate recollections of his year in charge of Barcelona. The new Mexican national team manager spent the 2013/14 season as the Blaugrana head coach, winning just the Supercopa de Espana. “From an outcome perspective, it wasn’t a bad year, “said Martino.
“We won a cup and we reached a final (of the Copa del Rey), anyway all Barcelona cares about is what number of trophies you win. “Notwithstanding, I would say it was my most noticeably terrible year [of my career] since my coaching association began and got done with the team management.”
There was a proposal during his residency at the Camp Nou that Martino had abandoned the conventional style of play in Barcelona, inclining toward a more straightforward approach.
He was, notwithstanding, to last only one season with the Spanish Super Cup the main major respect he claimed.
Gerardo Martino, Mexico ‘s current national coach, regards his forgettable stretch at Barcelona in 2013-14 as the “most exceedingly terrible year” of his career. Having recently dazzled in South America and won favor with Lionel Messi, the Argentine tactician was allowed the chance to succeed Tito Vilanova on Camp Nou.
Failure to get the best out of a star-studded squad saw him make way for Luis Enrique ‘s arrival, with the Barca legend in a situation to bring back the great times.
Martino acknowledges that he considers the Barca rudder troublesome and has hardly any great recollections of that period in what was a separate coaching career in any case.
