His period as national coach with the Red Devils has been a great success for Domenico Tedesco for the time being. Almost effortlessly he guided our country to the European Championship and that was often accompanied by good football. The real exam of course awaits a major championship, but the feeling is already good. The German now made some striking statements.
Tedesco has now been the new general of the Red Devils for almost a year. He succeeded Roberto Martinez, the Spaniard who achieved some successes, but who also had the feeling that there was ‘more’ to be achieved in the golden generation.
Difficult private situation
The 37-year-old coach was born in Italy and raised in Germany. He soon chose to become a trainer and was regarded as one of the ‘laptop trainers’, people who make extensive use of data and do not want to leave anything to chance.
This also sometimes causes problems in private life. “I’m not at home much. Mainly with my eldest daughter. I spent her first four years there… (blows) Let’s just say I didn’t really experience three,” he said with a certain amount of sadness The last news.
“The cleaning lady was so sweet”
In terms of people management, the national coach always tries to maintain good relationships with everyone, which was also the case at his previous clubs. “Some things in life you have to enjoy and I have that with chocolate. In Leipzig there was a cleaning lady so sweet that she always brought chocolate for us. And I am naturally a sweet tooth. I just try to hide it well. (smiles) That’s why black is such an interesting color to wear.”
There is still competitive football on the program this weekend, and from next week there will be another international break in which the Red Devils will face Serbia (practice match) and Azerbaijan (European Championship qualifying match).
