    Surprising since this announcement indicates that the disease in serious condition.
    Now the question that arises is, who will replace him. Barcelona club president, Sandro Rosell, in announcing the departure of manager Vilanova estimate the new name will be known to most rapidly Barcelona next week.
    Barcelona’s board of directors is expected to have pocketed a number of names that are considered worthy to be able to train the Blaugrana.
    Assistant Vilanova name, Jordi Roura and Rubi, unfortunately not on the list because they are less experienced. Unlike Vilanova who participated in the success of Pep Guardiola’s Barca in the era when he became an assistant for five years, Roura and Ruby only had limited time in the Barca dressing room.
    So instead of the name of the person inside, then Barca will likely be looking for a manager from outside.
    However, they seem to be looking for people who are already familiar with the unique game style of Barca.
    With the new season which begins less than a month away, appoint managers who are not familiar with the club and game systems have been established and the hope the new manager can quickly adapt, it is a gamble.
    For this reason, the Tottenham fans can be a little bit relieved that Andre Villas-Boas – who called could be a surprising choice – may not be the primary target.
    The most obvious candidate to continue the glory of Barcelona is the Dutch legend Johan Cruyff, as one of the people who designed the game systems ‘tiki-taka’ when he was manager in 1988.
    However, Cruyff also known to have a less than warm relationship with club president Rosell, and there is a clear picture that it is impossible for the former midfielder is back and yet again to Cruyff who also seemed reluctant to come under pressure from management.
    However, Barca can turn to a number of people who had come to feel success in Barca Cruyff era.
    Cruyff care
    Laudrup
    Laudrup with the feeling of success when playing in Barca coach Cruyff era.
    One person who participated in the team that successfully processed Cruyff gave victory in the European Cup in 1992 (with Guardiola and current director of football Andoni Zubizaretta) is Swansea manager Michael Laudrup, who is now a favorite among fans of Barca.
    Michael Laudrup is one of the key members ‘Dream Team’ Cruyff success in five seasons between 1989 and 1994. He successfully brought Swansea won the League Cup first for Swansea and Europa League qualification 2013-2014 season.
    Laudrup style of play adopted in Swansea is also similar to the philosophy of the Nou Camp, and its history as one of the best players in the last few decades the club will make fans honor.
    However Laudrup betrayal by moving the main competitor to Real Madrid in 1994 may be a stumbling block.
    Another name on the list is the newly appointed Luis Enrique Celta Vigo coach, former Barcelona midfielder is known as a talented player and a hard worker when grazed with Barcelona and Barcelona B team had trained in the Guardiola era before going to Rome.
    The possibility of another name that stuck out is the current Ajax coach Frank De Boer same bleak Enrique, join Barcelona after the departure of Cruyff and known to be familiar with the system of ‘Total Football’ which later developed into the ‘tiki taka’.
    So Laudrup, Enrique and De Boer would be a logical choice, but Villas-Boas, Roberto Mancini and Jupp Heynckes Jurgen Klopp could also be a strong candidate. And who will be the manager? … We do not have to wait long for an appointment as the club’s president Sandro Rosell, next week is a new manager at the Nou Camp.

  • Cycling-Armstrong says French findings on doping are no surprise

    Comments Off on Cycling-Armstrong says French findings on doping are no surprise
    June 24, 2017 /  Athletic and Swimming, Racing

    LONDON, July 25 (Reuters) – Lance Armstrong said he was not surprised by a French Senate inquiry’s findings that the top two in the 1998 Tour de France took the banned blood booster EPO because virtually all riders at that time cheated and told lies.

     “I am not surprised,” the disgraced Tour winner told Cyclingnews. “As I have said, it was an unfortunate era for all of us and virtually all of us broke the rules, and lied about it.”

    The American, who was stripped of his seven Tour titles for doping, called for cycling to address its doping past in a “collective and co-operative manner”.

    “If we don’t come together, have the conversation and draw a line in the sand and then move on, we’re all screwed,” he said.

    Armstrong admitted having taken performance-enhancing drugs in January and was stripped of the Tour titles he won from 1999 to 2005 after the United States Anti-Doping Agency said it had uncovered a sophisticated doping programme.

     Armstrong did not compete in 1998 because he was battling cancer but the French Senate inquiry, published on Wednesday, named him as testing positive for EPO in 1999.

     Italian Marco Pantani, who won the Tour in 1998 and died of a drug overdose in 2004, and Jan Ullrich of Germany, who finished second in 1998, were among those named in the 918-page report compiled by a parliamentary group who called for a “truth and reconciliation” commission (TRC) to be created to lift the veil of silence on illegal practices.

     Since Armstrong confessed to doping on the Oprah Winfrey show in January he has called for a truth and reconciliation programme on several occasions.

     WADA, the world anti-doping agency, the International Cycling Union (UCI) and national federations have been wary of the suggestion, although UCI presidential candidate Brian Cookson has appeared open to the suggestion of Armstrong sharing his past.

    Armstrong continued: “I have not been contacted by anyone. I suspect in many ways they (WADA) are afraid of a TRC as it would fly in the face of the now famous talking point ‘the most sophisticated doping programme in the history of the world’.”

    Asked if the Senate’s findings would benefit the sport, Armstrong told Cyclingnews: “I don’t know. I really don’t.

    “I’d like to think that there is some good in all this but from my perspective, sitting here today, there has been nothing but damage done to the sport.” (Reporting by Mike Collett; Editing by Clare Fallon)
