    Even so, there are many other big names who are called to lead Barca back decent success in domestic and European level on the 20013/14, Goal try to guess the criteria for the Catalan team’s quest for the ideal position to take the baton from Pep Guardiola and Vilanova who has led the over the last five years.

    Vilanova so hard slap departure for Barcelona, ​​the Catalan club meseki have had in a while coach Joan Francesc Ferrer themselves or used to be called ‘Ruby’ which could also replace Villanova last season, but his name will not be seen to be the main trainer.

    The end of July is not an ideal time to look for a new coach and there is also limited options for the Catalans. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas straight into a favorite for the position, but Barca have little opportunity to be able to bring the Portuguese man of White Hart Lane when his new season is getting closer.

    Likewise with Michael Laudrup who has committed to Swansea success with the club from Wales in 2012/13 campaign. The Danish man, who has also been linked with rivals Barca, Real Madrid, has made a contract extension to stay afloat in the Premier League and understood, the assistant will now be disappointed if he decided to dock to the Camp Nou.

    Luis Enrique had a situation not much different from having just extended his contract with Celta Vigo earlier this summer, but the former Barcelona and Spain star could still be obtained by redeeming clause of his contract worth € 3 million, with Barca includes Rubi as his successor.

    Athletic Bilbao boss Ernesto Valverde is another coach who admired the Catalan club for some time, as the former Barcelona player, the name Velverde always called when Balugrana need new coach, but he had just handle Bilbao and has strong ties with the Basque so the move is almost impossible.

    The former Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes and former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had indeed decided to retire as a coach and no longer optional for this case, while Roberto Mancini is still unemployed after leaving Manchester City this summer, but did not enter as a strong option.

    Frank Rijkaard names appear obvious, but his last two seasons at the Nou Camp without a trophy makes Barca have to think twice to give him a second chance.

    Then there is the duo of Argentina, Marcelo Bielsa and Gerardo Martino. Both are still unemployed, Bielsa has left Bilbao at the end of last season and the new Martino out of Newell’s Old Boys. Both are so important consideration, although Martino is more favored as preferred by Lionel Messi and be attractive options if Barca did not so use the services of Luis Enrique.

    Luis Enrique has played 300

  • A look at how Chris Froome won the Tour de France

    Comments Off on A look at how Chris Froome won the Tour de France
    December 27, 2021 /  Racing

    PARIS (AP) — Chris Froome is the second successive British rider to win the Tour de France. Here’s a look at his key moments:

    Stage 1

    Froome only had a few difficult moments on the bike. But one of those happened before the race had begun, with Froome tumbling off his bike after clipping a curb and grazing his right knee before the Stage 1 start. He changed bikes and returned to the peloton ahead of the official flag drop to start the Tour. If anything, it was the right time to fall because Froome avoided a heavy crash later on in the stage, when organizers changed the finish line area at the last minute because a team bus was camped on the line and unable to move.

    ”If that’s the only crash I have this Tour, I’ll take that,” Froome said at the time.

    Stage 8

    The first week of the Tour was about avoiding crashes and drinking enough water to cope with the searing heat as the race moved from Corsica and along the Mediterranean to Nice, Marseille and Montpellier. Once the race hit the high mountains of the Pyrenees, Froome launched a devastating attack on the last climb up to Ax 3 Domaines, and none of his rivals could even come close to catching him. That earned him the race leader’s yellow jersey – and the first question about doping. Froome’s incredible uphill speed drew comparisons to serial doping cheat Lance Armstrong, who was stripped of all seven Tour titles. Froome said he understood the suspicion but insisted he is clean. It would be the first of a barrage of questions he and Sky team manager Dave Brailsford would have to answer.

    Stage 9

    Isolated in the Pyrenees on a day when his Sky teammates fell apart, Froome had to withstand attacks from rivals all on his own. Colombian climber Nairo Quintana attacked him four times on the last climb but couldn’t break the Briton’s resolve. It was a defining moment as it showed he could defend just as well as he attacks.

    Rest Day 1

    Why was this rest day significant? Because Froome and Brailsford had to answer several questions about doping as the atmosphere started to turn sour. Self-professed Twitter experts provided a myriad of data, cycling blogs were full of comparisons with Armstrong and mainstream media outlets were keen to probe into why Froome is so good. It was a mere appetizer compared to what would happen on Rest Day 2.

    Stage 11

    Froome comes second to Tony Martin in the first time trial, missing out on victory by 12 seconds. It was still a victorious day for Froome as he finished more than 2 minutes ahead of archrival Alberto Contador and extended his race lead over the Spaniard to nearly 4 minutes.

    Stage 13

    For the first and only time, Froome loses to Contador after the Spaniard launched a clever late attack on a windy sprint stage to claw back more than 1 minute. It raised hopes – which proved fleeting – that the 2007 and ’09 champion could close the gap.

    Stage 15

    Froome did it again: another solo burst on the last climb up Mont Ventoux in Provence, one of the Tour’s most famed climbs. Froome showed rare emotion as he spoke of the pride he felt wearing the yellow jersey on the 100th Tour. His lead over Contador
