As fans who are concerned about Valencia information, it has become a fashion to catch the wind outside the stadium. This Thursday, loved by La Liga fans, the Portuguese star Thiago Mendes, a member of Atletico Madrid's Golden Decade's best team, made a big news: resign, and then apply for the La Liga coach's job certificate!
The 39-year-old Thiago joined Simeone's coaching staff after retiring. In July, he was appointed as the head coach of the Portuguese Super League Guimarães. This is his first time as the head coach of a professional club. However, after only playing 3 games in the Portuguese Super League, this Thursday he announced his resignation as the team coach without warning.
What is interesting is that this summer, Thiago was once one of Valencia's coaches, even before the current coach Gracia entered the team's field of vision. It was also said at the time that he might lead the Valencia Mestalla echelon. But the reason for the failure in the end was that when the team wanted to register for it, the Western Football Association warned that Thiago’s coaching license does not have the qualifications to coach abroad as prescribed by UEFA. After that, Valencia appointed Gracia as the new head coach, and Thiago quickly returned to Portugal just 2 days later and became the head coach of Guimarães.
After Lightning resigned, he signed up for an unknown course that could help him obtain a Spanish teaching qualification.
Valencia coach Gracia was very tired this week. After waiting for signings, negotiating with the agent for the future, communicating with the chairman, cheering for the locker room players, and publicly announced that he would stick to the team after an ideological struggle. Continue to devote himself to daily training, and also talked with Kondobia who was in the rumor of leaving the team and Guedes who was in poor condition.
The unknown courses mentioned above only last for a few days. At that time, Thiago can obtain the UEFA PRO coaching license, and he will be qualified to replace any La Liga team coach.
The reason why Thiago left Guimarães was explained by the media that there were disagreements on the club’s player transfer policy and the club did not introduce the players he wanted. If the reason is true, then no one knows Thiago better than Gracia at this point.
Finally, it is emphasized again that this news is purely off-court tidbits and may not have any actual relationship with Valencia.
