Chairman of Girona would even drive the successful coach to Munich himself

Girona's recent victory against Atlético Madrid, bringing them level on points with La Liga leaders Real Madrid, has been a significant milestone for the club, especially under the leadership of their coach, Míchel. 

This achievement has not gone unnoticed in the football world, drawing attention to Míchel's capabilities as a coach. Relevo's conversation with Pere Guardiola, Girona's president and brother of Pep Guardiola, sheds light on the future of Míchel at the club.

Pere Guardiola's comments indicate a deep respect and gratitude for Míchel’s work with Girona. He emphasizes Míchel's autonomy over his career decisions, acknowledging that the coach has the right to move on if he chooses, especially if an exciting opportunity arises. Guardiola’s statement about personally driving Míchel to Bayern Munich if such an offer were made, although possibly hyperbolic, underscores the level of appreciation and support for Míchel at Girona.

Guardiola also highlighted Míchel’s decision to stay with Girona despite having opportunities to join clubs competing in European football. This decision speaks to Míchel’s commitment to Girona’s project and his belief in the club’s potential. Guardiola assures that the club will continue to support Míchel by providing him with the right players to achieve their objectives.

The interest from other clubs in Míchel is a testament to his rising profile as a coach. Mundo Deportivo’s report about Newcastle United and Olympique Lyon showing interest in Míchel, with Lyon even reportedly making an offer, indicates the level of recognition he is receiving. Míchel's decision to reportedly reject Lyon's offer further demonstrates his commitment to Girona, at least for the time being.

The situation with Míchel at Girona is a reflection of the dynamic nature of football management, where success can quickly lead to new opportunities. It also highlights the importance of a good fit between a coach and a club, where mutual goals and understanding can lead to overachievement and success. As Girona continues to perform well in La Liga, the future of Míchel, both at the club and in his career, will be a point of interest for many in the football community. His decision-making in the coming months could have significant implications for his career trajectory and for Girona’s future prospects.
