'I don’t know what he has been doing for the last six week ’, Tony Adams on Unai Emery after Arsenal lost their opening match of 2018/2019 season to a strong Manchester City side. Arsenal’s record at the end of the season reads P38 W21 GD 22 PTS 70. Which is not too shabby considering the lopsided nature of the Arsenal team and Arsenal also played in the finals of the Europa cup on the Spaniards first season in charge. Pep Guardiola was termed Fraudiola for not lifting the premier league with Manchester City in his first season. Jurgen Klopp was not left out either. After losing the League cup to Man City in 2016, some people, nay, pundits were of the opinion that he was not born to win any cup finals.
These are few disparaging remarks being made to new coaches of elite club whenever they encounter their first hurdle or did not meet expectations that are being made by and only by the pundits themselves. The employers of the coaches knew that it will not be easy, some rational fans also know but only the pundits and some irrational fans seems to forget. Guardiola went from being called Fraudiola to winning the treble, which by itself is no small feat. Jurgen Klopp changed from being unable to win a cup finals even if his life depends on it to being a winner of the Uefa Champios League. Maurizio Sarri, who was termed ‘a former banker’ now won the Europa cup in his first season.
These achievements showed that kneejerk reactions are extremely uncalled for. The club Owners and Executives knew that this takes time and are willing to back their employee in the transfer market and coaches were also given mainly 3 years contract because they-the club executives- knew that it is nearly impossible to achieve the club’s ambitions in a year. The coaches are then sacked if after 3 years, there are no visible improvement. The coaching job is a stressful on its own, it does not need manufactured ones.
