In spite of successfully coaching Real Madrid, Italian Fabio Capello was fired at the end of the 2007 season. As a replacement, German former player Bernd Schuster has been assigned the new post. Is it the right move? We’ll have to wait and see. As a coach, Schuster is yet to bag big laurels under his belt – delighted and swollen with pride, feeling a great opportunity shouldered on him in leading the world’s no.1. Schuster starred for Barcelona in winning the Spanish league title. Serving Real with distinction as a player, he won the league titles in 1989 and 1990. Lots of credit goes to his favor for winning the 1980 European Championship with Germany. Schuster retired as a valuable player in 1997. With a new errand, Schuster started managing various small clubs successfully, but was unable to get the clubs promoted and also became accustomed of being fired occasionally. Moving back to Spain in 2004 to coach Levante UD, he gave a wonderful start and again faced the same plight of being fired in the disappointing final rush. In summer 2005, he signed the Getafe CF. Under his guidance, the small side from Madrid moved to their best season in team history. Schuster coached Getafe again in their second successful season and the team did even better, being placed 7th in the La Liga, securing entry to the 2007-08 UEFA Cup and thereby, steering its side to reach the final of the Copa del Rey.
