With “Tata” Barca won just Supercopa de Espana
Gerardo “Tata” Martino has no fascinating memories of his year at the head of Barcelona. The current Mexican national team boss spent the 2013/14 season as the head coach of the Blueagrana, winning just Supercopa de Espana. “In terms of results, it was a good year,” Martino said. We won the trophy and reached the Copa final del Rey. But what excites Barcelona is how many trophies you win. However, I would say that it was the worst year of my career because my contribution as a coach started and ended with managing the team.” During his stay at Camp Nou, it was speculated that Martino had betrayed Barcelona’s traditional playing style, favoring a more direct approach.
“There are questions that my leadership had a short life and, for me, the Clasico, we won 2-1 against Real Madrid at home was the key. We scored the second goal that fled into space, and if Barcelona ran into space. It was because something didn’t add up. But we could add something to the team, and it does not deprive them of a chance to escape. The squad’s pace made Barcelona more complete because when the opposition had domination spells, they could sit back and counter into space. That’s what they did next season with Luis Enrique.”
