Next Saturday (10/2), Real Madrid faces Girona at the Santiago Bernabeu and given the summit derby of the “merenches” with the unlikely “gironistas” Barcelona will also watch with interest. On the one hand, of course, because it has the ability to reduce its gap with the top two in the league and on the other hand, because the search for a new coach after the announcement of Xavi Hernandez that he is leaving in the summer is “hot” and one of the main candidates is Mitchell Sanchez!
The coach of Girona, according to Sportsis well liked by some of Barca’s leaders and there is no doubt that his great season at the helm of the ‘red and white’ team monitored very closelynot only from the “Blaugrana”, but also from other major European clubs, such as Chelsea for example.
Mitchell already gave one tactics course recently against Barcelona (2-4) and the “Santiago Bernabeu” presents itself as a favorable environment to confirm that he is the type of coach that Barcelona need in the post-Xavi era, for his bold approaches, his taste and impeccable locker room management.
As much as one wants to underestimate the work of the Catalan team, linking it to the City Groupwhat Girona is doing this season, with Mitchell at the helm, is really unimaginable. Girona, from a mere revelation, has become a serious contender for the title. And if he pulls off another win on Saturday, who knows, maybe he will, after all an absolute miracle in football history.
We remind you, in the first round game at “Montilivi” Real had comfortably won 3-0, but last season Mitchell’s team “stung” a valuable draw at “Santiago Bernabeu” (1-1) and in many moments of it was a fight superior from that of Carlo Ancelotti.
