‘I respect the Premier League and Championship’ – Crespo would like to trace Bielsa and handle England


The prior Chelsea, Milan and Inter striker is still making his way into direction but wishes to go back to the UK at a certain point

Hernan Crespo says he wishes to return to England as a supervisor, maybe after in Marcelo Bielsa’s footsteps by cutting his teeth at the Championship.

Contrary to his vastly experienced former manager Bielsa, Crespo is comparatively new to the training game. His existing side, Argentine outfit Defensa y Justicia, would be the fourth group he’s handled, after previous spells at Banfield, Modena and the youth group in Parma.

The prior Chelsea, Milan and Inter forwards is enjoying training and dreaming about a return to British shores.

“I was really delighted playing in England, visiting training, really pleased with the lovers,” Crespo informed the Daily Mail. “That is the reason why now for a supervisor I want to have the ability to re-live that. I respect the Premier League as well as the Championship, also.

“Being a trainer is amazing. Being Jose [Mourinho] in Chelsea and Inter, I heard that the manager is 360 levels.

“The best way to take care of journalists, physicians, players, backroom staff, the air, fans, together with everything.  These three [Mourinho, Bielsa and Carlo Ancelotti] opened my mind up to particular things.”

While Crespo played his fair share of top directors, he’s determined that his training style is going to probably be his very own — as his playing style has been.

“I loathed Marco Van Basten, Romario however I could not be Van Basten or Romario, I needed to become Hernan Crespo,” he explained.

“I shall simply attempt to place my name on the map without copying anyone. For me it is about individuality. I enjoy the supervisors who’ve identity such as Pep Guardiola or even Diego Simeone or even Jurgen Klopp.”

Regardless of his future in direction, Crespo also talked about his playing ago, such as his lowest moment. The then-forward scored twice in the first half of this 2005 Champions League final to give Milan a 3-0 lead at the break, until Liverpool implemented their renowned comeback in Istanbul.

“I do not recall what you are discussing,” he joked when asked about the match.

“The pain has been really good, but this is the reason why we love soccer, since it isn’t math. Pain won over motive. Matters simply happened which needed to occur. It is not something that you could control”
