Former Manchester United and Marseille defender Gabriel Heinze has been rumoured to be on the verge of joining Marseille as part of the coaching staff in the summer. The French club recently appointed former Athletic Bilbao and Chile national team manager Marcelo Bielsa as their manager. The South American has been out of work for the last few months, but he is regarded as one of the finest managers of the last five years. Marseille have been heavily linked with Marcelo Bielsa for the last few months and they announced the arrival of the new manager in the last few days.
Manchester United’s record signing Juan Mata has stated that he wants to be part of the team from a central position. Mata made his name at Valencia as winger, but he was used in a more central position at Chelsea under both Roberto di Matteo and Rafa Benitez.
This proved to be a master stroke, as the Spaniard dominated the matches with innovation, vision, and goalscoring abilities. He has been one of the leading assist makers in Europe over the last five years. However, since his move to United, Mata has been used out wide by David Moyes.
