Sorry for the delay, alright selecting the manager -- I choose Jose Mourinho.
Great pick i would have chose him but i had to please Messi
Yeah, I am Chelsea fan. Loved Mourinho when he was there. Just how organized, disciplined, methodical and dominant his teams where. Like a well-oiled machine. Just ran over opponents. Gutted when he left the club. So I have a soft spot for him. Lots of success in different situations too (Porto, Chelsea, Inter, now Madrid).
I think Mourinho will fit my squad's front three of Van Basten, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ruud Gullit very well. Three big powerful athletes up front. They'll be very effective in Jose's quick-transitions. Versatile attackers in Ronaldo and Gullit who can down the wing or cut inside and Van Basten's well-rounded center forward play is just about perfect for Mourinho. And Ronaldo has obviously been hugely successful under Jose. I think that should work well.
I thought Pep was an excellent choice. His possession-based system will be a lot of fun to build around in this format (All-Time Greats). I would have liked to nabbed him. Also, think Guardiola is perfect for a front three of Messi, Ronaldinho and George Best. That will be incredibly difficult to defend against. So much dribbling talent, creativity and interchangeability of positions.
I am surprised that all three coaches taken so far are active ones and what's more none of them are a certain Scotsman based in England. Two young coaches in Jose and Pep too.
