We shouldn't rush to judgement on the decision of the head manager. A decision will be made Tuesday; and I think the football association owes the head manager a little more confidence after all we won our group in Euro2016 which was quite a feat in itself after 44 years!
I also think Imre Szabics is too young to be head manager, I think you need to be 40 or better to be head coach, that job simply is not a manager-in-trainee position, it's the most elder and senior position of football management in a country.
Very smart and careful decisions need to be made for the right candidate to be in that position, somebody with a career track record, somebody with proven experience, somebody who can motivate and teach the advanced techniques and nuances and subtleties. Somebody who knows how to scout, spot and integrate good talent and make all those pieces dynamically sparkle and not lose on the field and win a majority of their games.
I think the team is looking not necessarily for a journeyman coach, a technical foreign trainer or some galvanizing spiritual football guru, but a genuine, long-haul legitimate manager who will be there for the long duration in 10, 15, 20+ years' time.
You know maybe, Storck should be given one more year if we closes out the year strong. Two years is simply not enough time to build out a strong team which this team is capable of being.
The onus is on him and his team, and the team has to perform primarily first. If the team talent is simply not there, then I'd say Storck was a successful manager.
