Malaga’s new manager Bernd Schuster!

Malaga confirmed that Manuel Pellegrini’s successor is Bernd Schuster, former Real Madrid manager. After reaching to the quarter-final with underdog Malaga Pellegrini declared on May 22 that he will leave the Spanish side.

Bernd Schuster started his managerial career at Fortuna Koln for just a year and left them for another years for another Koln club, and after that he went to Shakthar Donetsk where he established the record of the most consecutive victories but haven’t won the championship and haven’t experienced Champions League glory after he failed to reach the last qualification round with a loss to Lokomotiv Moskva and he was sacked although having 69% win.

After short reign at Levante Bernd Schuster left for Getafe where he spent another two years and Schuster helped them secure UEFA Europa League place after overcoming a 5-2 first leg defeat by the hands of Barcelona by beating the Catalans 4-0 in the second leg.

Bernd Schuster didn’t left Spain and joined his former team (as a player) Real Madrid, after being forced to  to buy-out his existing contract with Getafe for €480,000, which he paid for out of his own pocket to get the Blancos’ job, and he made a good start bringing Real Madrid to the top of the La Liga standings, playing offensive football, had never lost at Santiagu Bernabeu since the start of the league and beating arch rivals Barcelona, Bernd Schuster did amazing job turning Fabio Capello’s unattractive defensive style of football to fast paced attacking football, but couldn’t give any sort of Champions League success to Madrid after losing to AS Roma, but the German manager won the 31st Spanish title for Real Madrid with 3 games to spare.

Schusters’ Real Madrid broke the record of most league points at that time, with 85 but constant confortations with the media made Schuster step down as Madrid’s manager.

And after two years without managing any team Schuster signed for Turkish side Besiktas, among his new signings was Ricardo Quaresma, former Real Madrid legend Guti, and Portugal intrenational Hugo Almeida, but after another confortations with the media Schuter has resigned again.

All that led him to Malaga, where he will try to copy the success of Manuel Pellegrini and try to keep hold of the highly rated Isco.
