Archived from the original on 21 March Enrique Orizaola had a short-lived period as coach, staying at the Club for only five months.
In the end, that is exactly what happened as he was let go at season's end during the summer of to make way for Arrigo Sacchi. Despite the goalscoring exploits of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbainkthey were eliminated from —00 UEFA Cup at the eight-final stage by Lensbut relegation from La Liga several months later came as the most painful blow of all.
Making the Copa del Rey final for the second consecutive season came as one bright spot in an otherwise disastrous season, but even that was not to be as they were beaten to the trophy by Espanyol.
It turned out to be another unsuccessful stint for him, however, and at times full of controversy. It is mostly remembered for the mid-season free transfer signing of English football's "bad boy" Stan Collymore from Bradford City on 30 Januaryagainst the wishes and advice of many watchers.
The move garnered a lot of media interest, but also ended up having a disruptive influence on the rest of the team. It soon became apparent that Collymore was not only out of shape physically, but also not focused on the game mentally. Barely a month after arriving to much fanfare, Collymore left Oviedo without notifying anyone from the club and soon released a statement through a spokesperson announcing his retirement from football.
On the other hand, in Champions League, the expectations were substantial. His record with the club in the season since taking over was nine wins, six draws and three losses. The second leg turned into another tough battle with very little separating the sides: With momentum on their side, Barcelona mounted wave after wave of attack. The coaching change came as part of the general team overhaul initiated by the newly arrived club president Joan Laporta.
The squad never gelled together and he eventually resigned on 29 March following a 0—2 home loss to Real Zaragoza that dropped the team to second-last league position. He was in charge of the team in just nine league games, managing to get only seven points. They were also easily eliminated from the —04 Champions League by Arsenal 5—2 on aggregate. He later admitted joining Celta in such circumstances was a mistake and vowed never to accept coaching jobs in mid-season again.
On 25 August, he was officially unveiled as the new head coach.
His bench debut took place on 6 September in a qualifier against the Faroe Islands in front of less than 10, spectators at the almost empty Marakana Stadium.
And while Serbia lost 2—1 to somewhat wounded France that just days earlier shockingly lost to Austriamany positives were taken from the match at Stade de France such as a brave attacking approach with a lot of running from the wings. Next up in October was in-form Lithuaniawhich had recently defeated Romania and Austria without allowing a goal. As the winter break arrived, Serbia clearly made a statement of intent by sitting atop the group, tied on points with Lithuania, but with a superior goal differential.
In what was probably its toughest test of the entire qualifications, Serbia came through again by defeating Romanians 2—3. The squad featured one extra player with an understanding that one would be cut on 1 June. The first preparation friendly was played in Klagenfurt against minnows New Zealand on 29 May. The final dress rehearsal took place at home in Belgrade against Cameroonand although the 4—3 win was achieved, it came in nervous fashion as the Africans took the lead twice following lax Serbian defending.
The second half began in much the same fashion. Surprisingly, Serbia started playing much better, creating two excellent scoring opportunities in quick succession. Unexpectedly getting no points from the opening match meant that Serbia now faced a must-win situation against its next opponent, powerhouse Germany that destroyed Australia in their first match.
After cautious opening, German forward Miroslav Klose got a second yellow card on 37 minutes. Despite being down a man, Germany managed to create some chances in the remaining minutes of the first half with Sami Khedira hitting the crossbar. The first fifteen minutes of the second half featured a complete onslaught by the undermanned Germany. With chances coming one after another, confused and disorganized Serbia was completely pushed back despite having an extra player on the pitch.
Serbia eventually won the match and brought back hopes of progression with it. In the final group game against Australia, Serbia only needed a single point to reach the knockout stages and named an unchanged line up from the win over Germany.
They were defeated by Australia 2—1 in an entertaining match where Serbia's dominance in the first half and in period's of the second half would have made it look like a Serbia victory. They unfortunately were their own worst enemy, their failure to convert many chances again proved costly with Australia scoring 2 goals in the second half through Tim Cahill and Brett Holman. They finished last in the group, missing out by a point.
He started the campaign strongly with a away win over the Faroe Islands. He left the post with disappointment and sued the Serbian FA not long after. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. He holds dual Serbian and Spanish citizenship.
