Friday, June 30, 2017
Manchester City should increase considerably during the summer. After Bernardo Silva, it is especially Benjamin Mendy who is expected on the side of the Etihad Stadium, Josep Guardiola having convinced the Monegasque thanks to Marcelo Bielsa.
In France, Marcelo Bielsa remains a technician discussed, between those who praise his game philosophy, his work and his propensity to advance players, where others prefer to put forward an almost virgin prize list. But in the world of the ball, many are the technicians not to hide their admiration for the Argentine. Diego Simeone, Jorge Sampaoli or Josep Guardiola do not hesitate for a moment when it comes to braiding praises to "El Loco".
In return, some of them will benefit somehow from his aura ... The manager of Manchester City would have managed to convince Benjamin Mendy to come to work with him, reports L'Equipe, pushing him to spread the Chelsea and Liverpool tracks. The Catalan would have personally called on the left-wing side of AS Monaco to present his project to him, and would have told him all his defects and qualities, based on the information of a certain Marcelo Bielsa, Former Havrais under his tutelage at OM.
However, the international tricolor has a real admiration for the current coach of Losc, who had managed to make much progress. By preparing to collaborate with Josep Guardiola, he would inevitably find a familiar working environment, since the former defensive midfielder is a disciple of the man at the cooler. And this fact would have largely tipped the scales in the spirit of the left side of the ASM, which nevertheless still has to convince the champions of France to grant him an exit ticket to spin out the Premier League.
