August is fast approaching and in fact, we are already in the last week of July. So for all the football fans out there it only means one thing. The 2013 European football season is almost around the corner. And every club out there has strengthened their squads by acquiring the services of great football players around the globe during the summer transfer window. As of the moment many clubs got what they wanted and many known players will be playing under different jersey when the 2013 season will kick off mid of August.
Although there are lots of surprises as to what club players went after the recently concluded season but intriguing stories came out as well to coaches of big clubs in Spain, France, Germany and UK. It all started with Guardiola moving to Bayern Munich early this year then Jose Mou’s rumored homecoming to Chelsea has been materialized. And Ligue 1 champions (PSG) lost their coach after the season and was released to Real Madrid while ManU has a new coach after Sir Alex Ferguson resigned after capturing United’s 20th Premier League championship.
More to it and just very recently, Tito Vilanova, Barca’s manager, announced his resignation before the season even started because of health reason. I’m not sure how critical it was for Barcelona’s already troubled games especially when they are dismantled by the Bavarians in the Champions League semi-finals. Not to mention that they are also beaten twice by arch rival Real Madrid in just a span of 5 days and their 2013 season is quite interesting to follow and that also includes Monaco in the Ligue 1.
