José Mourinho sacked, Manchester United should look for a new captain to aim the ship. What if our French Pep, Bruno Génésio was the the perfect profile for the job. WeSportFR is converting itself into a recruitment agency to propel the Olympique Lyonnais coach to the Theatre of Dreams.
Some solid standards
Bruno Génésio has real arguments, even if he hasn’t the experience of the best European managers. An Europa League semi-final, a Champions League phase group without any defeat, three podiums in four Ligue 1 seasons, our Pep has strong arguments. Talking about Pep, Génésio has resisted and even beaten many known and confirmed coaches, hammering them tactically : Nagelsmann, Paulo Fonseca, Jardim, Emery, Favre, and recently Guardiola. They’ve left some teeth against this outstanding strategist and shrewd football connoisseur.
A man of confidence and commitment for his boards, Génésio knows how to establish faith relationships between his players. Many players blossomed thanks to his formative spirit : Nabil Fékir, Corentin Tolisso (now in Bayern Munich), Houssem Aouar, Ferland Mendy, Tanguy Ndombélé. Without forgetting the revival of a Memphis Depay, in distress in… Manchester United, oh ! what a coincidence. The French technician masters perfectly his group’s work and is also able to bring a bonus to his team. With a hybrid play style and sometimes flamboyant, nobody doubts that the Red Devils can be reborn with Bruno…
A smoother character
Okay, Manchester United’s charisma and mondial dimension can dampen any commitment for a guy like Génésio. But isn’t it better than someone that appears in all the tabloïds every week and makes a name for himself in press conferences ? Known as a genuine icon and a fugurehead of Olympique Lyonnais’ formation, Bruno has the experience to bring back belief to the team’s linchpins. Signing the French coach could facilitate their recruitment policy, by attracting good potential players like Aouar or also activating Depay’s clause. Some clever staffing that can provide a real bonus in a such expanded but at times untalented team as United.
We’re not the only one imagining his arrival ! The English bookmakers have put a 21/1 odd on Bruno Génésio becoming the Manchester United coach. Extra details feeding our assumption !
A competent coach to prevail against Guardiola, able to reverse the European big clubs, give a great team to Génésio and you will obtain astonishing results. A resume having all the necessary qualities to please Manchester United fans and board, a club hoping for a great come-back and suffering from its comparison with Manchester City. It could be Bruno Génésio, the Chosen One.
