We asked the best football player in the USSR in 1972, Evgeny Lovchev, to comment on this news.
– Tedesco and Schwarz are not the two great examples in world football, – says Lovchev. – Nobody in Europe really needs them. That Tedesco lead the Belgian team is a super offer. The golden generation of Belgians is leaving, but a new generation is already growing up following his example. True, Tedesco does not have time to wait there for 5 or 10 years for a new generation to arrive.
Tedesco, 37, took charge of Leipzig last season, earning a Champions League place with him and winning the German Cup. However, in early September, after a disastrous start in the Bundesliga, he was sacked.
Joachim Löw and André Villas-Boas have previously turned down offers to manage the Belgian national team.
