‘Optimism, excitement’ – Salzburg’s US coach Marsch looks forward to football returning

first_imgSalzburg have found the going tougher since losing Haaland and Japan’s Takumi Minamino to Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool respectively.Both were outstanding in Salzburg’s Champions League campaign as they impressed against Liverpool and Napoli.Haaland, the 19-year-old Norwegian, scored 28 goals in 22 games before joining Dortmund and netting nine in his first eight German Bundesliga appearances.“He is a freak, he physically is gifted in ways that very few people are. There is very little that he can’t do in terms of the requirements of the game at the highest level,” Marsch says.“You could see in every training session and every test game, he had moments that were like ‘wow’, and those ‘wow’ moments got to be more and more until sometimes it would be a 90-minute performance.”If losing Haaland and Minamino in the winter was a blow, Marsch points out that youth development is central to the strategy of a club who have also polished players like Sadio Mane and Naby Keita.– In defence of US women –Salzburg gave him an opportunity too, to make a name for himself as an American coach in Europe.“This is an experiment for me to see if my way of thinking, my way of leadership, of relationships, can function in the most competitive world of our sport here in Europe, although I understand Austria is not the highest level in Europe.”He still keeps a close eye on goings-on at home, though, and has been supportive of the US women’s national team who recently had their case to be paid the same as their male counterparts thrown out by a federal judge.“I just felt like those women earned more than the respect of everybody to be treated like heroes and with full respect,” he says.“After the lawsuit getting thrown out, yeah I have emotions for that too, because I would like to see them treated fairly.” Share on: WhatsApp The first American to coach in the Champions League, Red Bull Salzburg’s Jesse Marsch is excited about football returning after the coronavirus shutdownParis, France | AFP |  Having become the first American to coach a team in the Champions League and overseen the remarkable rise of Erling Braut Haaland, it was already an unforgettable season for Jesse Marsch before the coronavirus pandemic came along.Now the coach of Austria’s Red Bull Salzburg is preparing his team to return to action after a two-month shutdown.Salzburg have already been back training in small groups but are set to resume collective training on Friday before the Austrian Bundesliga picks up again in early June.“We had to all get tests today again to make sure that nobody had the virus. This is the second time that we have had tests,” Marsch told AFP on Wednesday in a phone interview.“We will still have to keep distances in the locker room, and we will wear masks in the building. Even on the bench we will have to keep distances of one metre between players and coaching staff.”Unlike in Germany, where the league resumes this weekend, teams in Austria have not been forced into quarantine training camps.Indeed, if Germany has coped well enough with the pandemic to be able to bring back football, Austria has arguably done even better.With its population of almost nine million, it has registered only 624 deaths from under 16,000 cases and began easing its lockdown in mid-April.“If you were here and you saw how people have followed the rules, how they wear masks, how they respect each other’s space, it would give you a lot of confidence that the virus is well contained,” says Marsch, who was assistant coach at RB Leipzig in Germany before moving to Salzburg last year.The 46-year-old Wisconsin native spent lockdown in Salzburg with his wife and two sons. Their 18-year-old daughter stayed in Leipzig to finish high school but returned to the family before the border between the countries closed.Salzburg have not played since March 8. While in lockdown, Marsch focused on “family, friends and football” and — like everyone it seems — “did a lot of Zoom calls”.Now the season is returning, and Salzburg’s first game is set to be the Cup final against second-division Austria Lustenau in late May.Then it will be back to the league, as the Red Bull club try to catch leaders LASK Linz and claim a seventh straight title. They are currently three points behind.“Right now there is a lot of optimism and excitement,” admits Marsch.– Haaland: ‘A freak’ –last_img read more

London to coach Virginia, 2nd current Black head coach at BCS school

first_imgKEY HIRING—New University of Virginia head football coach, Mike London, left, speaks during a news conference with athletic director, Craig Littlepage, right, in Charlottesville, Va., Dec. 7. by Hank Kurz Jr.CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP)—Mike London said all the right things in accepting the job to rebuild Virginia’s football program, talking of how high academic standards shouldn’t rule out success on the field and the importance of building deep and personal relationships.The latter will be especially true as it relates to high schools and recruiting. “I think we have to recapture the state of Virginia,” the former Richmond coach said Monday. He succeeds his former boss, Al Groh, who was fired last Sunday after nine seasons and a 1-8 record against Virginia Tech, the dominant team in the Atlantic Coast Conference.London agreed to a five-year contract that will pay him $1.7 million per year to take over a team coming off a 3-9 record, its worst since 1982. It has had three losing seasons in the last four and fallen behind the rival Hokies in the minds of many in-state recruits.London will be just the second current Black head coach in the six conferences with automatic bids to the BCS, joining Miami’s Randy Shannon, but said he wanted to be hired on his merits, not his skin color.“I guess you guys can talk about the historical significance of it,” he said.His hiring, though, was celebrated elsewhere.Former NFL head coach Tony Dungy, who on Sunday night called the low number of Black head coaches in the college game “disgraceful,” said in an e-mail that he applauds Virginia “on doing an inclusive search. I hope this will be an encouragement to other universities to do the same—to look at a broad picture of candidates and hire the best person for their job.”London is just the 10th Black coach at the 120 Football Bowl Subdivision schools.Widely respected as a recruiter, London says he intends to build a network that reaches not only into high schools, but into the surrounding communities because, he said, “people don’t care about how much you know until they know about how much you care.”He also had a message for high school coaches, particularly in the state:“If Virginia hasn’t been there, we’ll be there,” he said.London left a team that won the Football Championship Subdivision national championship in 2008 and reached the quarterfinals of the playoffs this year to return to a place he knows well, having spent six years as an assistant under Groh in two stints between 2001-07.The courtship was “a whirlwind,” according to London, who said the downer of his Spiders losing to Appalachian State in the last 10 seconds on Saturday night was replaced early the next morning by “euphoria” once Virginia asked for permission to speak with him.Athletic director Craig Littlepage said once he knew he was in the market for a head coach, “one coach, just one, stood out,” and he was delighted that London was available.“There have been a lot of athletic directors who have asked me about him. I was hoping they wouldn’t hire him for that maybe one day we’d have this sort of predicament,” he said.London’s background as a college coach also includes stops at Boston College and William & Mary, similarly strict academic schools, and he said his recruiting approach will be to seek players who view playing football at Virginia as a best of both worlds opportunity.“It’s a fit, a perfect fit for me,” he said.last_img read more

Adopt-A-Pet Dog of the Week: Snoop Dog

first_imgFacebook151Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Adopt-A-PetMeet Snoop Dog! He is a happy, super-smart, one-year-old, German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix who is in search of his own active and loving family. He has lived successfully with another dog and enjoys playing with mellow dogs (with supervision and after proper introduction). Because of his size (87 pounds) and high energy level, children in his home should be older, dog-savvy, and gentle. Snoop Dog enjoys leash-walks (the more the better), playing tether ball, inventing his own tennis ball games, and swimming.Besides being such a cool dude, he is considered handsome by the volunteers here at the shelter. Volunteers say that his chestnut-colored neck hair really sets off his black muzzle and pearly whites. If you are looking for a very nice dog, and can provide him with love, exercise, further training to satisfy his desire for knowledge, good chow, and a fenced yard, then perhaps we should set a “get-to-know” each other date.If you have further questions or would like to schedule an appointment to meet Snoop Dog in person, please contact the adoption team at Shelton Adopt-a-Pet. Emails are the preferred method of communication.Adopt-A-Pet has many great dogs and always need volunteers. To see all our current dogs, visit the Adopt-A-Pet website, our Facebook page or at the shelter on Jensen Road in Shelton.
