Nagelsmann tops list of best young coaches making their name across Europe

Less than two months into the 2020-21 season there are already question marks over head coaches at some of Europe’s biggest clubs following less than impressive starts. While it’s probably a bit early yet to be making drastic changes, no doubt club chairmen and sporting directors will have an eye out for potential replacements should things not pick up.

The general trend is still to recycle the same “name” managers, like Maurizio Sarri, Antonio Conte, Thomas Tuchel and Unai Emery, rather than giving up-and-coming coaches a chance, but for clubs with the imagination and courage to break that pattern, there are some exciting alternatives out there.

Here are seven of the brightest and most promising young coaches — defined as under 45 years old — across Europe who are sure to figure in any such discussions.

‘Napoli to win Italian title’ makes Maradona’s 60th birthday wish list

Argentina legend Diego Maradona put former club Napoli ending their three-decade wait to win the Italian league title on his birthday wish list as he turned 60 on Friday.

Maradona, who led Napoli to their only two Serie A titles in 1987 and 1990, celebrated his birthday in self-isolation to protect himself from the coronavirus pandemic.

“What gift would I like to have? Nothing for me. I wish this murderous pandemic would go away, yes,” the former World Cup winner wrote in an open letter in Corriere Dello Sport. 

“I wish that here in Argentina as in many, too many, other parts of the world, the viruses of hunger and lack of work that devour people’s dignity were also defeated. 

“And then, since I just can’t stop talking about football, I would like my Gimnasia, who are close to returning to the pitch, to win the championship again after 90

Professional soccer matches will have to be played without spectators starting Monday and for the rest of November, while amateur sports have been suspended altogether.

The Bundesliga has been playing with limited or no fans present this season anyway, with teams following local restrictions based on infection rates. But Wednesday’s new measures are the first nationwide clampdown since the Bundesliga’s two-month suspension when the pandemic began in March.

Live Davis Cup Tennis – what time is it on TV? Episode 2 cast list and preview.


by Jack Seale

Day two of Britain’s difficult World Group match against Spain, live from Club de Tenis Puente Romano, Marbella. Playing away on the Spaniards’ favoured clay courts would be tricky enough with Andy Murray in the team; since the Scot is recovering from hip surgery, Britain are outranked and, on paper, outgunned, although the presence of Australian Open hero Kyle Edmund should give the home side pause.

Today, however, it’s the doubles rubber, with Jamie Murray and Dominic Inglot likely to be representing GB. Sue Barker hosts, with commentary from Chris Bradnam, John Lloyd and Jamie Baker.
