This team has a huge budget and its owners are hoping to get the Championship Titlein the near future. Not only is the arrangement better but you can also give instructions to every player individually.

Even though I’m disappointed with the lack of improvement in certain areas, FIFA 15 is still l a very solid sport game.

The Beauty Lies in the Details

The new graphic engine allowed EA sports to dedicate some time to some not so noticeable elements. There are players such as Rui Patricio,William Carvalho, Nani andIslam Slimani.

RB Leipzig

Even though this club was founded in 2009 it managed to rise through the ranks and is now in Bundesliga2. Another big novelty are the emotional reactions of the players, there are 600 of them and they depend on the situation on the field. The AI has also a bad habit of keeping the ball too long.

Number of players: 1-22

Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

The Bad: The modes haven’t been improved that much, the teams play tactics aren’t diverse.

That is probably the reason why EA Sports felt like they couldn’t make any mistakes this time, instead, they felt that they need to show what the new console system had to offer. When you notice that for the first time you’ll be thrilled.

The Spectators

The spectators behave very realistic, each clubs spectators are different, which includes the songs they sing.

The Most Interesting Teams

There are over 100 teams in FIFA 15, these are the ones that caught my attention.

Sporting Lisbon

One of Portugal’s three biggest clubs is full of interesting players. I need to mention that the PC version is on the same level as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, which was a real surprise, considering that last year they kept telling us that normal computers aren’t ready for this kind of game. Even the night matches look amazing and the faces don’t feel like plastic, but even so, there is still room for improvement. The scouting system has also been improved, but not enough to make a difference. Release Date: September 25th 2014

But you’re probably interested in the gameplay, which has a lot of room of improvement. The controls have been improved and are more precise now, the difference between good and bad players is more noticeable, especially duringdribblingsessions. All in all, the PC players gained the most from this, because even they can now feel the new generation of FIFA games.

It feels that a lot of effort has been put into presenting the game, and with good reason. We had the opportunity to see them during the Brazil World Cup 2014. That doesn’t necessary mean that you can’t score a goal, instead, they reaction depends on the situation. The most interesting player isRani Khedira, the younger brother ofSami Khedira.

. I don’t know how many times I’ve stopped the game just to watch the replay of how a defensive player steals the ball, something that wasn’t possible in the past. I should praise the EA team for finally improving the tactical screens. Other modes didn’t get anything new, not even the Career mode. Last years next-gen engine has been improved, the most striking thing are the lightning effects. Aside from that, you’ll be able to see grass in the air.

Moving the Goal

For the first time in history I can say that scoring a goal in the FIFA series is better than in the Pro Evolution Soccer series, strong shoots will move the goal.


The replay will simulate the thing we watch on TV, all you need to do is stop the menu and watch it yourself.

Shirt Pulling

This year you’ll clearly see how players are pulling on each others shirts. Not even FIFA 14 was spared, the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions were pathetic and while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions were OK, they didn’t use all of the potential these two consoles had to offer.

Defending the Title

Genre: Sports

A lot of attention was devoted to the English Premier League, which isn’t a surprise because they formed a partnership a few years ago. If you’re not someone who loves the English Premier League, then this is your chance.

Publisher: EA Sports

The Good: The details are awesome, the Premier League has been integrated in a good way, the PC version is better than last years.

On the other hand, some bad things have been kept, the different play styles aren’t expressed as well as in the Pro Evolution Soccer series and just like in the past games, defensive players will sometimes just stand still and allow you score or receive a goal. While I already mentioned the faces, EA Sports scanned over a hundreds faces for this game and they have been presented as best as they could be on this engine. I should also mention that the spectators of each club behave differently.

Developer: EA Canada

A lot of attention has been dedicated to the Ultimate Team mode, which isn’t only the most popular one but it’s also very profitable for EA Sports through micro transactions. While playing the game I noticed a few very strange mistakes, but they weren’t serious enough to make the game bad. This year the goal keepers were in the foreground, their AI was created from scratch, and you’ll also notice that new animations have been added to them to make them more realistic. Even though they don’t affect the gameplay of the game they will thrill the players.

Field Degradation

The grass surface will be destroyed during the match, and in a different way every time because everything is calculated in real-time. But to be honest, that is just a pretty visual detail.

Sport game lovers had a really bad year last year, which is typical whenever a new console generation appears. Every team has its own stadium and authentic spectators. Aside from that, a lot of attention has been dedicated to the details, and while they might not influence the gameplay, it sure creates a great atmosphere

“Nunca tuve una situacin con tantas lesiones. Pero estamos aqu. Vamos a luchar hasta el final por nuestros objetivos, por nuestro club”, agreg.

El Bayern, que es lder de la Bundesliga con una ventaja de 10 puntos, busca esta temporada un triplete de ttulos, algo que ya consigui en 2013. El equipo bvaro visitar al Porto la prxima semana por la ida de los cuartos de final del mximo torneo de clubes de Europa.

La lesin de Benatia, que lo podra marginar de el csped durante cerca de un mes, se suma a las bajas de Bastian Schweinsteiger, David Alaba, Arjen Robben, Javi Martnez y el portero suplente Tom Starke.

He is also one of only 5 managers who have won league titles in 4 countries. Rehhagel’s seemingly old-fashioned tactics, employing a libero, strong, uncompromising defenders, and high pressure from the wings, invited criticism in the modern era of fluid, ball-playing defenses, but Rehhagel backs up his continued usage of the system with his successes. He won the first hat-trick of league titles in German football, emulating the achievement in the next decade. He paid attention to the development of Liverpool’s youth system, a change that would serve the club well in the coming glory years. His scintillating teams in the early noughties dazzled fans and opposition defenses alike. The Inter team, in this famous period, came to be known as Grande Inter. Lippi’s coaching philosophy emphasizes the importance of team spirit, and he is a firm believer of the philosophy that the sum of 11 players working for the team produces better results than 11 better players working ‘for themselves’.

Born: March 17, 1939

Nationality: Italian

Career: 1972-present

Teams Managed: AC Milan, Juventus, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich, Cagliari, Fiorentina, Benfica, Stuttgart, Red Bull Salzburg, Republic of Ireland


Italian Serie A: Juventus 1976-77, 1977-78, 1980-81, 1981-82, 1983-84, 1985-86; Inter Milan 1988-89 Coppa Italia: Juventus 1978-79, 1982-83 Supercoppa Italiana: Inter Milan 1989 Bundesliga: Bayern Munich 1996-97 DFB-Pokal: Bayern Munich 1997-98 DFB-Ligapokal (German League Cup): Bayern Munich 1996-97 Portuguese League: Benfica 2004-05 Austrian League: Red Bull Salzburg 2006-07 European Cup: Juventus 1984-85 UEFA Cup: Juventus 1976-77, 1992-93; Inter Milan 1990-91 UEFA Cup Winners Cup: Juventus 1984 UEFA Super Cup: Juventus 1984 Intercontinental Cup: Juventus 1985 Nations Cup: Republic of Ireland 2011 Giovanni Trappatoni is one of the most successful managers to be around. Shankly started the now-famous tradition of the Boot Room, a storage room where the coaches would discuss tactics and strategies. His name is synonymous with Manchester United’s rise in the English league, but he was a household name even before he signed for the English giants in 1986. This even includes two one-year spells at Real Madrid, both of which ended in title triumph. After winning his second European Cup, he asked the Benfica board for a raise, but was declined. His extremely well-drilled, yet swashbuckling Milan teams were based on a preexisting core of Italian players such as Franco Baresi, Paolo Maldini, and Roberto Donadoni, and Dutch imports such as Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit, and Frank Rijkaard. His philosophy is still the underlying principle at both Ajax and Barcelona, later reinforced by Michels’ best pupil, Johan Cruyff.

Born: June 18, 1946

Nationality: Italian

Career: 1991-present

Teams Managed: AC Milan, Real Madrid, Roma, Juventus, England, Russia


Italian Serie A: AC Milan 1991-92, 1992-93, 1993-94, 1995-96; Roma 2000-01 Spanish La Liga: Real Madrid 1996-97, 2006-07 Supercoppa Italiana: AC Milan 1992, 1993, 1994; Roma 2001 UEFA Champions League: AC Milan 1993-94 European Supercup: AC Milan 1994 Capello holds the remarkable record of having won a league title with each one of his clubs (Capello’s 2004-05 and 2005-06 titles with Juventus were later discounted because of Juventus and second placed AC Milan’s involvement in the Calciopoli matchfixing scandal). Herrera is also known as a pioneer of psychological motivation techniques. He is the only manager to have won the Champions League, the UEFA Euro Championship, and the World Cup. Ironically, given his success as the manager of Manchester United, Busby played for United’s two greatest rivals: their neighbor Manchester City, and northwest rivals Liverpool. He was promoted to the senior job in 1999, and led the club to several major trophies, before being sacked in 2003. After ending his playing career at the latter, he was offered the post of assistant manager there. However, he has notoriously failed to replicate his league successes in knockout tournaments, with the 1993-94 Champions League being his only knockout victory (Supercoppa Italiana and the European Super Cup are one-match playoffs). After an unsuccessful term as the coach of Turkish side Beikta, and a three-year hiatus after that, he replaced the Euro-winning coach Luis Aragons as the manager of the Spanish national team. Due to his success and commanding personality, he is known as der General.

Born: December 31, 1941

Nationality: Scottish

Career: 1974 – 2013

Teams Managed: East Stirlingshire, St. He has won the UEFA Cup three times, which is a record. Stein and Celtic were the first British manager and team, respectively, to win the European Cup, beating Helenio Herrera’s famous Grande Inter in the 1967 final. He tragically died while managing Scotland, just after securing Scotland’s place in a playoff for the 1986 World Cup.

On a lighter note, Trappatoni is notorious for his quirky, and often mistake-filled press conferences in the regional language of his clubs.

Louis van Gaal

Born: November 29, 1925

Died: November 14, 1992

Nationality: Austrian

Career: 1962-1992

Teams Managed: ADO Den Haag, Feyenoord, Sevilla, Club Brugge, Netherlands, Harelbeke, Standard Lige, Hamburg, Tirol, Austria


Eredivisie: Feyenoord 1970-71 KNVB Cup: ADO Den Haag 1967-68 Belgian First Division: Brugge 1975-76, 1976-77, 1977-78 Belgian Cup: Brugge 1976-77; Standard Lige 1980-81 Belgian Supercup: Standard Lige 1981 Bundesliga: Hamburg 1981-82, 1982-83 DFB-Pokal: Hamburg 1986-87 Austrian League: Tirol 1988-89, 1989-90 Austrian Cup: Tirol 1988-89 European Cup: Feyenoord 1969-70; Hamburg 1982-83 Intercontinental Cup: 1970 Happel’s career is littered with landmarks. Hiddink has also succeeded while working as a short-term coach, winning the Intercontinental trophy in a one-year spell with Real Madrid, and winning the FA Cup in a 4-month spell with Chelsea. He put up inspirational quotes in the dressing rooms and around the ground, and had his players recite them as they trained.

World’s Greatest Soccer Managers of All Time

Bla Guttman

Born: November 8, 1946

Nationality: Dutch

Career: 1987-present

Teams Managed: PSV Eindhoven, Fenerbahe, Valencia, Netherlands, Real Madrid, Real Betis, South Korea, Australia, Russia, Chelsea, Turkey, Anzi Makhachkala


Eredivisie: PSV 1986-87, 187-88, 1988-89, 2002-03, 2004-05, 2005-06 KNVB Cup: PSV 1987-88, 1988-89, 1989-90, 2004-05 Dutch Supercup: PSV 1993 FA Cup: Chelsea 2008-2009 Intercontinental Cup: Real Madrid 1998 Hiddink is one of the most diversely successful and respected managers in the world. The administration system put in place by Cruyff at Barcelona is said to be the source of Barcelona’s current success. In his playing days, he was a pioneer of ‘total football’, and used the same system in his managerial career to great effect. Of course, it is impossible to include all the legends of the game in one list, not least because ‘greatness’ is defined and interpreted differently by everyone. His stint as the coach of the Swiss national team has been relatively successful. He decides the starting XI, the strategies and tactics to be used in each match, who has to be left out, and who has to be promoted. On the other hand, when he succeeds, critics are often ready with arguments such as the owner’s financial strength, or the quality of the players themselves being responsible for the success.

Emerging from this maze of obstacles and being counted as one of the game’s legends takes an indomitable will, a knack of spotting talent, sound tactical acumen, and most importantly, the ability to motivate the players to perform to the best of their capabilities. In 2008, he took Russia to their first Euro semifinal appearance, since finishing second in 1988.

Born: January 16, 1935

Nationality: German

Career: 1970-2000

Teams Managed: Bayern Munich, Borussia Mnchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, Kln, Schalke


Bundesliga (German Championship): 1971-72, 1972-73, 1973-74, 1984-85 1985-86, 1986-87; Borussia Mnchengladbach 1975-76, 1976-77 DFB-Pokal (German Cup): Bayern Munich 1970-71, 1983-84, 1985-86 Copa Del Rey: Barcelona 1982-83 European Cup: Bayern Munich 1973-74 UEFA Cup: Borussia Mnchengladbach 1979 UEFA Cup Winners Cup: Barcelona 1981-82 Lattek is one of Germany’s most successful coaches. After a mediocre spell at Brighton and a disastrous 44-day tenure as the manager of Leeds United, Clough joined second division strugglers Nottingham Forest. Born: April 25, 1947

Nationality: Dutch

Career: 1985-2013 (inactive between 1996 and 2009)

Teams Managed: Ajax, Barcelona, Catalonia


Spanish La Liga: Barcelona 1990-91, 1991-92, 1992-93, 1993-94 Copa Del Rey: Barcelona 1989-90 Supercopa de Espaa: 1991, 1992, 1994 KNVB Cup: Ajax 1985-86, 1986-87 European Cup: Barcelona 1991-92 UEFA Cup Winners Cup: Ajax 1986-87; Barcelona 1988-89 UEFA Super Cup: Barcelona 1992 Johan Cruyff is one of the best players and managers in soccer history. Inter’s defensive catenaccio system was so spectacularly overrun by Stein’s Celtic, that the Scottish team came to be known as ‘Lisbon Lions’, after the location of the match. Rehhagel used similar tactics and the famous motivational ability to inspire Kaiserslautern to the second and first division titles in successive years — a first in German football, and a general rarity.

These were 25 of the greatest managers in the history of the beautiful game. The only trophy he has failed to win is a domestic cup. Guttman was openly arrogant and brash. Clough is highly respected in the UK for his stunning achievements, and is often considered the greatest manager England never had.

Fabio Capello. He is, as yet, the only manager to win 3 European Cups/Champions Leagues. Carrying on Aragons’ excellent work, del Bosque led Spain to their first ever World Cup and their second successive Euro in 2010 and 2012 respectively.

Jock Stein

Guus Hiddink

The following list is the personal opinion of the writer, and in no particular order.

Born: April 12, 1948

Nationality: Italian

Career: 1985-present

Teams Managed: Pontedera, Siena, Pistoiese, Carrarese, Cesena, Lucchese, Atalanta, Napoli, Juventus, Inter Milan, Italy, Guangzhou Evergrande


FIFA World Cup: Italy 2006 Italian Serie A: Juventus 1994-95, 1996-97, 1997-98, 2001-02, 2002-03 Coppa Italia: Juventus 1994-95 Supercoppa Italiana: Juventus 1995, 1997, 2002, 2003 Chinese Super League: Guangzhou Evergrande 2012 Chinese FA Cup: Guangzhou Evergrande 2012 UEFA Champions League: Juventus 1995-96 European Supercup: Juventus 1996 Intercontinental Cup: Juventus 1996 Marcello Lippi is the first manager to win top global honors in club and international football, winning the intercontinental cup with Juventus in 1996, and the World Cup with Italy 10 years later (this record is now shared with Vicente del Bosque). Wenger, who espouses entertaining football, is credited with revolutionizing the Premier League. On the international stage, he led England to the World Cup quarterfinals in 2010, and achieved qualification for Euro 2012, before resigning from the post over differences with the English FA just before the tournament proper.

Brian Clough

Vicente del Bosque

The Insurmountable ObstacleIn the 125 years of league football, no manager has won a league title, a domestic cup, a continental club championship, an intercontinental club championship, a continental national championship, and the World Cup.

The job of a manager is virtually limitless. Bosque spent 14 years as a player for Madrid, and started his coaching career with the Madrid ‘B’ team, Castilla. When things go wrong, the manager is often the one who has to bear the brunt, even though it may not be his fault. He has played or managed over 1,000 games in the Bundesliga, making him only the second, and as yet last man to achieve this milestone (after Otto Rehhagel).

Rinus Michels

Born: April 1, 1946

Nationality: Italian

Career: 1985-2001

Teams Managed: Parma, AC Milan, Italy, Atltico Madrid


Italian Serie A: AC Milan 1987-88 Italian Serie C1: Parma 1986-87 Supercoppa Italiana: AC Milan 1988 European Cup: AC Milan 1988-89, 1989-90 European Supercup: AC Milan 1989, 1990 Intercontinental Cup: AC Milan 1989, 1990 Saachi is one of the very few managerial legends not to have played soccer professionally. Improving upon his rapid success with Derby County, Clough took Forest to the First Division in his second season, won the First Division in his third, and won the European Cup in the fourth and fifth. Lattek was also part of Germany’s coaching squad before joining Bayern, and went to the 1966 World Cup with Die Mannschaft.

Ottmar Hitzfeld

Born: May 9, 1945

Nationality: German

Career: 1979-2013

Teams Managed: Borussia Mnchengladbach, Bayern Munich, Athletic Bilbao, Eintracht Frankfurt, Tenerife, Real Madrid, Benfica, Schalke, Bayer Leverkusen

With his longtime assistant Peter Taylor, Clough took Derby County from the second division to the premier title in 5 years, before resigning from the post. Van Gaal is a self-confessed slow starter as a manager, and demands time to let his teams learn his way of playing. He remains a respected adviser to both Ajax and Barcelona.

He is one of only 5 managers to have won league titles in 4 countries, and Happel and Jos Mourinho are the only two managers in history to win the league and a domestic cup in 4 countries. Sacchi espoused attacking football, having grown up watching the Magical Magyars and the di Stfano-led Real Madrid. Among the latter, Mourinho is the only manager to win league titles in England, Spain, Italy, and Portugal. He didn’t stay at any club but Benfica for more than two years; he stayed at the Portuguese giants for three! Despite winning numerous other trophies, Guttman is most closely associated with Benfica’s two European Cups, and his mentoring of the legendary Eusbio. This led to criticism when he was appointed at AC Milan (in spite of just having promoted Parma from the Italian third division), which Sacchi silenced by coining the famous phrase – “You don’t have to have been a horse to become a jockey”. He is a master of psychological battles, and is known as a master motivator. The ultimate one-club man, Paisley remained at Liverpool as a player, physiotherapist, assistant manager (to the legendary Bill Shankly), manager, adviser, and director from 1939 to 1992 — a whopping 53 years!

He is one of only 6 managers in history to lead his team to a League-Domestic Cup-European Cup treble, achieving it with PSV in 1987-88. He is also known as an astute tactician, favoring different formations at his different clubs, to optimize the performance of the players at his disposal.

He is the only manager to reach the European Cup final with three clubs, taking Brugge to the 1978 final, where they were beaten by Liverpool. 1979-80 European Super Cup: Nottingham Forest 1979 Brian Clough is considered one of the greatest British managers ever.

Scottish First Division (2nd tier): St. In 2004, Wenger’s Arsenal made history by becoming the first team to go an entire season unbeaten since Preston North End in the inaugural season of the English League in 1888. His successes with Ajax correspondingly came with a group of young, malleable, and versatile players, ready to be molded into the way Van Gaal wanted them to play. Shankly signed with Liverpool in 1959, and revolutionized the way the club was run, to the extent that within a year of his arrival, 24 players had been sold. The highly successful Barcelona team coached by Pep Guardiola use a version of the metodo.

The Ajax team of the 1970s was also similarly deadly against continental opposition, and won three successive European Cups, with Michels winning the first. The tactical flexibility afforded by the formation was strikingly effective against the established formations, and carried the Netherlands to successive World Cup finals in 1974 and 1978, though they lost both. He is also known to be flexible with his formations, adopting the formation best suited for the team, rather than forcing the formation on unsuitable players.

Despite the lack of longevity, Mourinho is already one of the most successful managers ever; He and Earnst Happel are the only two managers in the history of the game to have won league and domestic cup honors in 4 countries. In a fascism-laden 1930s, the Italian national team emerged as the force to reckon with, winning two of the three World Cups in the decade, as well as an Olympic tournament. After developing a core of young, talented Dutch players at Ajax, he continued with the policy, and notably brought forth current German internationals Thomas Muller and Holger Badstuber while at Bayern. He has been voted as the best Scottish manager in history, beating the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, and the best Celtic manager ever. Shankly’s coaching team in the Boot Room included assistant Bob Paisley, who would succeed Shankly as Liverpool manager, and Joe Fagan, who in turn would replace Paisley.

Staying true to his quirky manner, Guttman immediately left and “cursed” Benfica that they would not win another European Cup in the next 100 years. On their way to the trophy, Greece beat defending Champions France and hosts Portugal. His name is primarily associated with the meteoric rise of Derby County and Nottingham Forest. Excelling in this multifaceted job is no child’s play. He made his name as a player for Ajax and Barcelona, and later managed the same clubs to numerous honors. He narrowly lost out on becoming one of the few coaches to have won the Champions League twice, when his Juventus team lost the 2003 final on penalties. His attitude and reluctance to stay at a club for a long time led to comparisons between him and Jos Mourinho. The victory reaffirmed Rehhagel’s fame as one of the best motivators in the modern game. Trappatoni is the only manager who has won the European Cup, UEFA Cup, UEFA Cup Winners Cup, European Supercup, and the Intercontinental Cup. He has to do all of this while juggling an owner focused on maintaining the budget, and fans intent on seeing their team succeed to no end. Sacchi’s Milan remain the last team to retain the European Cup/Champions League.

He achieved qualification for the 2010 World Cup, where Switzerland were the only team to beat eventual champions Spain.

He took South Korea and Australia to their first ever knockout rounds in World Cups, incredibly reaching the semifinals with the former in 2002. He got his career off with a bang, coaching the most successful Ajax side since the Cruyff-dominated 1970s. After winning numerous titles with Atltico Madrid and Barcelona, he joined Inter Milan, and heralded the greatest period in the club’s history. He consistently managed to exceed expectations on the international stage. Hitzfeld is thus a highly respected manager in Germany and Europe. He is also one of only 4 managers to have won the Champions League with two clubs, and is one of only five to have won league titles in 4 countries. The managers who have gone on to become legends in the game are the ones who have been able to balance all of these aspects in one successful, dynamic structure.

Further supporting that theory, Milan also won the Supercup and the Intercontinental Cup after both their European Cups, but lost out on the domestic title. The Barcelona team of the early ’90s comprising international and Spanish stars such as Romario, Hristo Stoichkov, Michael Laudrup, and Pep Guardiola, won the Spanish league in four successive seasons, and is known as the Dream Team. He led the club to promotion to the First Division in just 3 seasons, and won the premier league title just 2 years after promotion. His Champions League victory with Dortmund was the first in the club’s history, while Bayern hadn’t won the prestigious title for 35 years before 2001. His supporters claim the large number of trophies he’s managed to win, while his critics point to his disinterest in the long-term fortunes of the club. He famously broke the Celtic-Rangers duopoly over the Scottish league, by winning the premier title with Aberdeen, and even claimed a continental trophy with the Scottish side. He is best remembered for his two spells with Juventus, the first being one of the most decorated eras of the team. At the time of writing, he has never stayed at one club for more than 3 seasons. Stein won 10 Scottish league titles, 9 of them consecutive. He also reached the 1978 World Cup final with Netherlands, making him the first manager (and one of just six) to reach the European Cup final and the World Cup final.

That game was particularly disappointing for Bayern fans, since the team lost as the result of a 4-3 penalty shootout at the end of a tied game. Heynckes played as a striker which means he played at the front of the field and was responsible for scoring goals. His tendency to become red in the face turning tense moments on the sidelines earned him the nickname “Osram,” after a German manufacturer of lighting.

Starting in 2011, Heynckes returned to Bayern Munich for his third tenure as manager of the Bundesliga stars. During his career there, he won four championships, one national cup, and one UEFA cup (the Europe-wide club championship). Before winning the UEFA cup, Borussia became the first German team to play in a UEFA cup final in 1973. At the time that Heynckes joined the team in 1964, Borussia was a second division team, meaning that they competed in a league below the First Bundesliga. The year after Heunckes joined, Borussia managed to make their way into the first division where they enjoyed some success.

The Mönchengladbach Golden Years

At the relatively young age of 33, Heynckes left the football field and began his managerial career. Additionally, Heynckes was a part of the West German national team, which won a European championship and a World Cup during his tenure.

Heynckes as a Manager

Jupp Heynckes, born in 1945 in Mönchengladbach, Germany, was an extremely influential figure in the world of German Football Association. That year, Heynckes’ team also yielded the Bundesliga championship to Borussia Dortmund.

Among Heynckes’ golden moments as manager were the 1989 and 1990 German championship wins for Bayern Munich, and the 1998 Champions League success for Spain’s Real Madrid, who had not had a Champions League win for 32 years. He began his footballing career with the Borussia Mönchengladbach squad, called Borussia for short. He managed his home team, Borussia Mönchengladbach, for eight years, until 1987. In addition to these successes, there were some decidedly low points in Heynckes’ managerial career, including early terminations from German teams Bayern Munich and Schalke 04.

Ending with Bayern Munich

During the 2012-2013 season, which was to be Heynckes’ final season as a football manager, Bayern Munich were off to a good start. After a successful career as a football player, Heynckes went on to become one of the most skilled managers in the Bundesliga (German Football League).

His Early Career. in the Champions League final. As a young manager, Heynckes did not lead Borussia to the same level of success the team enjoyed when he was on the field, but the experience he gained there led to a series of successful and not so successful management posts around Europe. At the time of this writing, the club led the Bundesliga by 9 points and had advanced to the Champions League round of 16 at the top of their group. He stayed with Borussia for the remainder of his career as a football player, until 1978. Although it could be argued that Heynckes was a better player than a manager, his successes will be enough to secure his place in the history of German football.

Ups and Downs

Heynckes’ Legacy

After a brief period with another team, Hannover 96, Heynckes went back to Mönchengladbach. During his second stint at Mönchengladbach, the team was in its heyday, and as the top scorer in the Bundesliga during 1974 and 1975, Heynckes was in no small part responsible for the team’s success. During the 2011-2012 season, Bayern Munich had a string of second place finishes, narrowly losing to England’s Chelsea F.C

The Daily Mail is reporting that a fee in the range of £4 million has been agreed upon by Southampton and Chelsea. Even with the superb youth academy that Southampton are renowned for, Southampton have been searching for quality depth this summer.

While Oriol Romeu will likely not command a starting spot in the Southampton midfield right off the bat, the Spaniard does add depth to the Saints midfield. Hopefully Oriol Romeu can also have a successful season with the Saints.

Last season, Chelsea originally loaned left back Ryan Bertrand to Ronald Koeman’s side last season before Southampton opted to make the deal a permanent one in the winter transfer window. Should he continue to develop how many envision he would, this deal could represent a sort of a steal for Southampton FC.

Also adding to many supporters belief in this move will be the transfer history of Ronald Koeman. Putting in a couple quality seasons with the Saints could see the interest in him from the Premier League’s top clubs again peak.

The move will also help Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho reduce his squad size to something more manageable. Proving last season that he was a talent finder, Ronald Koeman has shown his ability to find quality in players that most other clubs would see as surplus.

In the running originally for Oriol Romeu was Leicester City. The deal would see the Spaniard join the South Coast club on a permanent deal.
