Sheffield United Hire Francesc de Nadal
Sheffield United have hired former Barcelona and Spain player Francesc de Nadal as their new head coach on a 3 year deal worth a reported £5000 per week. De Nadal, 37, made 344 appearances for Barcelona in his one-club career whilst making 32 appearances for Spain before retiring due to injuries in 2005. The appointment of de Nadal marks his return to football after over 5 years out. The former Spanish midfielder was known for his excellent passing and dribbling ability, it is thought that the new manager will look to imprint his own “Spanish” style on the under performing Yorkshire club.
