Southgate neuer Boro-Trainer

Recommended Posts

Middlesbrough have appointed Gareth Southgate as their new manager.

Southgate, who won 57 caps for England, joined Boro from Aston Villa in a £6.5m deal in summer 2001, and has made more than 200 appearances for the club. The 35-year-old defender has been given the job despite not possessing the relevant Uefa coaching qualifications.

Club chairman Steve Gibson said: "We have fast-tracked Gareth because we let our previous manager, Steve McClaren, become the new England coach." Premiership managers are expected to possess the Uefa Pro Licence for coaching - the qualification above the Uefa 'A' Licence - before taking charge of a club. Southgate, who has made more than 600 appearances as a professional, is yet to complete the necessary courses because he is still playing regularly. That prompted LMA chief John Barnwell to conclude: "They can't do it - it's as simple as that."

But Gibson is confident that a precedent was set when Glenn Roeder took over at Newcastle even though he did not have a Uefa Pro Licence. He has actively been canvassing his counterparts in recent days despite stern resistance from the LMA, who also vehemently opposed Roeder's application for dispensation. Chief executive Keith Lamb told the club website: "Middlesbrough and Gareth should not suffer because he has had such a successful career at club and international level. Until recently Gareth has spent his summers serving his country as a player. It makes little sense that such players should be denied rare opportunities like the one he now has simply because he hasn't had the chance to gain the qualifications. It is no coincidence that many of the current crop of good young managers did not actually play at the highest level, so were able to concentrate on gaining coaching qualifications while many top stars were playing for their country. If that continues, the natural conclusion is that most top British managers will have no experience of international football." And Southgate's appointment appears to have the backing of his current team-mates.

Ian Elliott, winger Stewart Downing's agent, told BBC Sport: "Stewart is obviously aware of what's going on and he is very happy with Gareth. He thinks it's a good appointment, probably as good an appointment as could have been made. Obviously Gareth knows the players and gets on well with everyone, and it is important to Stewart that he won't come in and rock the boat and change everything. Things like the academy, which has been very successful for Middlesbrough, is vital for Boro and Stewart is keen for the club to keep faith with that and he knows Gareth would do that."

BBC - Ob das mal gut geht ...

Ich halte es für riskant, dass er direkt Trainer wird ohne jegliche Erfahrung was den Trainerjob betrifft

Natürlich kann es ein Vorteil sein da er die Spieler sehr gut kennt aber ich weiß nicht sorecht.

Dann noch das völlig überschätzte Resenbaby als Einstandsgeschenk.

Ob das gut geht?

Ich glaube nicht
