Teams: All Azerbaijani clubs, Azerbaijan NT; FC Barcelona
I totally agree with Quidam - we have had too much of our local coaches, and even Mirjavadov's and Abdullayev's qualifications are not enough in order to create a strong team. I would like to see a German coach (no Brazilians, Italians, Spaniards, Latin Americans). Only a German coach is able to change to whole mentality of our players and do a gigantic work to improve country's football affairs. As far as names are concerned, of course getting a very exprienced and well-known coach from Germany is extremely expensive. However, it is possible to invite a quite young and talented coach, who would have much energy and desire to work for the good of Azeri football. As candidate #1 I see Michael Skibbe, who currently coaches Bayer Leverkuzen and despite his quite young age, he has achieved many things, in particular in the areas of working with talented and promising players. Exactly what we now need.
Another option, which would be easier for everyone, taking into account the usual communication problems with the arrival of a foreign coach, it would be a nice idea to invite somebody from former Soviet Union. Many excellent coaches do not work, however, they could contribute perfectly to our national team. Moreover, in comparison to any other foreigner, a Russian (Soviet) coach will not have any problems with understanding our player's mentality. There are many names which would be appropriate for our national team, for instance Vitali Shevchenko (ex Neftchi player, by the way - one more positive point) or Gadzhi Gadzhiev. Both did a great job training FC Torpedo Moskva and Krylya Sovetov, respectively. And both would be able to create an "iron discipline" in our football.
Therefore, our federation should seriously consider these two options, if they are really interested in the future of our football. Either a German coach, or a Russian. NO coaches from Azerbaijan and NO coaches from any Southern country.
