Spain - Malaga CF has hired manager Hokie79 to lead them thru the Serie B campaign starting next week. The newly appointed manager failed in London as he got West Ham relegated to Serie C. But he seeks refuge in Spain and hopes to reignite his career after failing twice in London.
"For some reason, my two stints in London havent been good enough. But I wanted a team that can adapt to my style and in the end I felt Malaga had enough skill players in the right position. I am aiming high and want to go back to the top and compete in Serie A. I also want to get my first trophy as a manager. I will be playing with a little more caution this year as the competition has improved since coming back."
January Transfer Rumors: As the transfer period sets to open in the new year, manager Hokie79 is hoping the cash-strapped club do not open up a garage sale on their top talent. Hokie79 is already preparing to have life without the experienced Santa Cruz, who is headed out to Mexico Cruz Azul, leaving a hole in the final third with Juanmi as the targeted replacement. Another potential troubling exit will be his starting GK Ochoa - who had a brilliant World Cup campaign. Kameni is still around as a backup, but it is evident Hokie79 prefers the Mexican GK as his first choice.
It will be a long month, but until the transfers are confirmed and go through, Malaga will continue to play their schedule and grab points where they can. As far as incoming talent, it has been all quiet in the Spanish front.....maybe Messi will come in? One can only hope.
