07:47 in the morning in Thailand, you open the phone and a feeling of joy goes through your body, first to see how the CD Mirandes a humble club defeats teams theoretically far superior to it, in the King Cup.
You see, you feel from the distance that luck does not enter in Anduba, they are brave bets, my congratulations from the president, the sports director to the last fan. Because all Anduba is pure football language. They worked in preseason with honesty and humility. They gave the confidence to a coach Andoni Iraola, who is demonstrating personality, and professionalism with his decisions.
They bet on young people like the revolution of the championship, Antonio Sanchez and players that nobody wanted and now fight in the first division. That friends is economic and sports efficiency, so a club is managed.
My players, and many people have heard me a thousand times say that the number one guideline in marketing is copying, copying the best, as clubs in the world, copy, copy to CD Mirandes. It is all common sense.
Where are the Hierarchies, the meritology in many top teams in the World, sign former players as sports directors, and have never trained … how are they going to have enough empathy with the coaches?
Top former players play them everywhere, in first division teams without even having trained a youth? Then they last a month like Silvinho in Lyon. Or Leo Franco in SD Huesca. and a long ETC…And is it a surprise? 😰
In the era of Big data, and new technologies, many Top teams function as recreational clubs. That is to say, they have worked worse than 30 years ago. And that gentlemen presidents costs money, and many debts, for example, everyone sees that….
Was Grizzmann a player for FC Barcelona? Barça style?
The most expensive player in the history of FC Barcelona Coutinho, should it be in a loan the following year? Etc etc etc.
Millions are worth these decisions. And there are consequences? For managing so badly?
For all this, the CD Mirandes, with a low budget, with the language of soccer by flag, does nothing more than show many Top and not top teams.
When you learn to fight for the language of football, you also learn to defend it.
Great CD Mirandes.
