There’s some good news today in that according to the Chronicle, Newcastle have offered a “no comment” on the rumors yesterday that they want Rayo Vallecano boss Paco Jemez as the new head coach at the club this summer, and if this man gets the job it would be simply terrific news for Newcastle fans.
Paco Jemez – plays beautiful attacking football
The Rayo Vallecano boss played as a center-back and represented Spain 21 times, and he just loves to play good attacking football, and he admits in his playing days when his coaches told him to just hack the ball down the field he hated that – but in more flowery language.
Paco like the play the beautiful game and that’s how he has Rayo playing, even though he has been restricted with very little money to spend – but he could do that at Newcastle, with a huge rebuilding job necessary at the club, and he would definitely help to attract some top players.
He is a very talented coach and has done really well at Rayo over the last three seasons, and it may be a good time for the Magpies to get him, before he starts to attract the big clubs, and as we reported this morning, he has said it’s his ambition to coach in the Premier League.
Paco will not compromise the play of Rayo, and he has them playing Barcelona style football and they pass the ball around and retain possession, and attack the opposition – everything Newcastle are not doing right now.
And Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is an admirer of the 45 year-old Spaniard and Pep’s said that Barcelona, Bayern and Rayo Vallecano are the only three teams in the world who attempt the bold play that Guardiola has always played – so that’s a compliment indeed.
However, Paco is also outspoken (great!) and he takes no BS, and therefore may not fit easily into the closely managed and controlled Newcastle United of today.
But hey, perhaps Mike Ashley has seen the errors of his way and the embarrassing way in which he has put the club at risk of relegation by his dealings in January, and will hire Paco this summer.
It would be a great time for the Spaniard to come in, because Newcastle will be rebuilding the squad completely in the summer – and we are just hoping we can get the 3 points necessary to keep us in the Premier League.
Getting Paco Jemez to Newcastle would be phenomenal.
