MUFC Podcast: Football coach on Mourinho and who should replace him when the time comes

Dale is delighted to be joined by football coach and author Gary Curneen, originally from Northern Ireland but currently working in the United States as assistant manager to the Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL (women’s professional league).

Curneen is a United fan, who studied Mourinho’s management at a Real Madrid coaching event in Los Angeles some years ago. He tells us about the influence Mourinho has had on his career and how he’s still one of the very business in football.

Gary previously was the head women’s coach at California State University Bakersfield, where he led the program to a first-ever second place finish and was named Coach of the Year in 2016. He has started Modern Soccer Coach to help educate other coaches and provide avenues for coaches to learn from some of the best.

We take a look at how football has evolved down the years and how Pep Guardiola has helped reshape football after winning domestic titles with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.
