Chelsea is saved by former coach Messi, and one of the best specialists in the Russian championship comes to Dynamo.
The European season has come to an end. Clubs in the top 5 leagues have launched an active transfer campaign. The changes also apply to trainers. In Europe, there have already been several high-profile permutations. Which specialists have found new clubs and who remains unemployed?
Marcel Lichka (Orenburg – Dynamo)

The loudest coaching shakeup was the transfer of Marcel Lichka from Orenburg to Dynamo Moscow. The deal has yet to be officially announced, but the Czech will be officially presented in a new position in the coming days. The management of “Dynamo” drew attention to the success of “Orenburg” last season. The team took seventh place, while Dynamo became ninth. Muscovites will pay 1 million euros in compensation for Lichka. The same amount will be the salary of a Czech at Dynamo. The contract with the specialist will be for three years.

A compatriot will come to replace Lichka in Orenburg. The team will be led by former CSKA footballer Krylya Sovetov and former Chelsea player Jiri Yaroshik. Cech has already been considered as Lichka’s replacement in the winter, when he could be in Krasnodar. Now, however, the time for Yaroshik’s appointment has come. The official announcement of him also depends on the announcement of Lichka in Dynamo.

Tottenham broke up with Antonio Conte in the spring. His assistants rounded out the season, first Christian Stellini and then Ryan Mason. And in early June, Spurs announced the appointment of Angelos Postekoglu. Previously, the Australian coach worked with Celtic. Together with the Celts, he won the Scottish Championship-2022/2023 and went up.
Mauricio Pochettino (without club – Chelsea)

So far, the main coaching appointment of the offseason. Chelsea has decided on a specialist who will help the club out of the crisis. The Londoners opted for Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine was not number one on the list (Julian Nagelsmann was considered the top choice, for example), but he convinced Chelsea officials that he was competent. This is the Argentine’s third Premier League job: he previously managed Southampton and Tottenham. Now Mauricio has an equally difficult task: to succeed with struggling Chelsea.
Which players will Pochettino get rid of?
Massive purge of the Chelsea squad. Will Pochettino get rid of 15 players at once?
Dino Toppmöller (without club – Eintracht Frankfurt)

Eintracht Frankfurt parted ways with coach Oliver Glasner. Dino Toppmöller was called in to replace him. Previously, the 42-year-old specialist worked as an assistant at the headquarters of Julian Nagelsmann. They left Bayern together in March 2023. Toppmöller’s contract ran until the summer of 2026. A bold move considering this is the first major appointment in Dino’s career (he previously managed clubs in Luxembourg and the Belgian Second League ).
Gerardo Seoane (without club – Borussia Mönchengladbach)

Another serious German club changed managers. In place of Daniel Farke (who arrived in Krasnodar for two months at the beginning of 2022), Borussia Mönchengladbach appointed Gerardo Seoane. In the Bundesliga, the Swiss specialist worked at Bayer (2021-2022), and earned a name at Young Boys. In Switzerland, he won three national championships and one Cup. Seoane now faces a new challenge: building a strong team in Mönchengladbach.
Who has finished behind Bayern in the Bundesliga in the last 10 years?
Bayern was the hegemon of the Bundesliga for 10 years. Do you remember who came in second place?
Luciano Spalletti (Napoli – no club)

Spalletti led Napoli to their first Serie A gold in 33 years and unexpectedly left the club. The reason is the disagreements with the president of Napoli, Aurelio De Laurentiis. For example, the head of the Neapolitans sent a letter to the coach about the automatic renewal of the contract by email. This greatly upset Spalletti, who felt that he deserved more respect. As a result, Luciano left on top and took a year’s break. The most likely candidates for the vacant position are Luis Enrique and Gian Piero Gasperini. At the moment, the hateful De Laurentiis is choosing a new coach for the team.
The Napoli fans celebrated Spalletti in an unusual way:

Philippe Clement (Monaco – no club)

Monaco, for which Alexander Golovin plays, passed the European Cups at the end of the 2022/2023 season. The Monegasques were unstable throughout the championship and coach Philippe Clement was blamed for this. The specialist has been working with Monaco since January 2022. Last season, Clément’s team finished third, and now they are only sixth. Is it time for Golovin to leave Monaco?
Bordeaux was left without games against PSG next season due to the stupidity of a fan:

Carlos Carvalhal (Celtic – no club)

The only resignation in Spain at the moment is the departure of Carlos Carvalhal from Celta. The club was ranked 13th at the end of the season, which did not suit the bosses. Carvalhal took charge of Celta in November 2022. Under his leadership, the team had 10 wins, 8 draws and 11 losses. However, the ambitions of the leadership turned out to be greater, so the contract with the 57-year-old specialist was terminated.
