• Arribage guided Toulouse to French Cup glory as well as second in Ligue 1
• The 47-year-old led Toulouse to the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League
• Toulouse has also been named the Ligue 1 Best Team of the Year

After winning the award last year, Toulouse manager Dominique Arribage has gone back to back in being named French Manager of the Year. Arribage lead his team to a French Cup victory as well as finishing second in Ligue 1, the 47-year-old also enjoyed a successful campaign in the UEFA Champions League where Toulouse were eventually eliminated by Ajax in the Round of 16.

“It is always nice to win awards like this but my main objective is to win trophies for the Toulouse Football Club.” said Toulouse manager Dominique Arribage. “I am enjoying my role as manager of the club more than ever and I believe the club is capable of great things.” he added.

“Dominique has a great influence on our squad and there is no doubt he is the best manager in France at the moment.” said Toulouse vice-captain Predrag Rajkovic. “He gives our players the belief that any achievement is within our grasp while maintaining that we remained focused against all opposition.” he added.

The awards continued for Toulouse at the end of the year with the side itself being named the Ligue 1 Best Team of the Year for the first time since Arribage took over as manager. Toulouse now head into the January transfer window with a number of players being linked to other clubs, they will face a tremendous battle as they attempt to keep their squad together.
What a hero he is! Well done mate
It should be renamed as Dominique Arribage manager of the year award :P

http://s105.photobucket.com/user/chrisgriffin89/media/maxresdefault_zpsnsk5l1td.jpg.html
After a frustrating spell with Juventus, Hakim Ziyech is set to join Toulouse

• Ziyech has been brought to Toulouse for a transfer fee of €11.75 million
• Iheanacho is set to join Toulouse at the end of his contract with Manchester City
• Dominque Arribage has also signed Neal Maupay who arrives from AS Saint-Etienne

After failing to make an appearance for Juventus during his time at the club, Toulouse have secured a transfer for Hakim Ziyech with the Moroccan international joining the French club for a transfer fee of €11.75 million. The 25-year-old will earn €64,000 per week during his time at the club until 2023.

Starting his career in Holland with sc Heerenveen, Ziyech moved to FC Twente where he forged a reputation as a talented attacking player. A number of clubs across Europe displayed interest in the Moroccan before Atletico Madrid secured his services but failed to live up to expectations. Ziyech then moved to Italy with Juventus for a fee of €18.75 million before moving to Toulouse.

“The arrival of Hakim will give us more dead ball options while adding more depth to the squad.” said Toulouse manager Dominique Arribage. “I believe he can truly help us as we look to continue to improve on our results from last season.” he added.

In other transfer news, Kelechi Iheanacho is set to join Toulouse at the end of his contract after Manchester City opted not to offer the striker a contract extension. Toulouse have also signed another striker in Neal Maupay who arrives from AS Saint-Etienne to add further depth to the position.
I don't know loads about this player, so will be fun to see how he copes in a tough league!
Love how you're signing the players that not everybody signs on FM - also good deal for Iheanacho there :)
Neal Maupay :)

PSG are shaking in their boots now, I can feel it

Toulouse captain Emanuel Mammana is set to move to Arsenal

• Securing the transfer of Mammana will cost the London club a sum of €35 million
• Cristian Pavon has been announced as the new captain of Toulouse
• Serbian international Predrag Rajkovic will remain as Toulouse vice-captain

After a successful stint in France, Toulouse captain Emanuel Mammana is set to move to Arsenal with the London club paying a transfer fee of €35 million. The Argentinian international has signed a contract which will see him at the club until 2023, earning €115,000 per week.

Starting his career at River Plate, Mammana signed for Toulouse in the 2015/16 season, going on to become club captain in 2017. The defender played 102 games in four seasons with the club while scoring nine goals. Mammana won six trophies during his time at Toulouse including the Ligue 1 title in 2017.

“Emanuel has been a terrific servant for the Toulouse Football Club and there is no doubt the club would not have been as successful without him." said Toulouse manager Dominique Arribage. I believe he will develop into one of the best defenders in the world and I wish him nothing but success for the future.” he added.

It has been announced that Cristian Pavon will take over as captain while Predrag Rajkovic will remain in his role as vice-captain. The 23-year-old will make his debut as captain when Toulouse take on rivals Girondins de Bordeuax at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux.
An exceptional player to lose, no doubt. My question is that do you have a replacement lined up in the transfer market or will a youngster fill in his role?
Mammana will be a big loss but, you have enough to buy a replacement or invest elsewhere if you want ti
Big loss in a big player and an influential captain! Hopefully you can replace him quickly

Arribage Signs Belenenses Defender


http://s105.photobucket.com/user/chrisgriffin89/media/maxsportsworldtwo353224_zps57epautr.jpg.html
Dominique Arribage has brought in Paulo Pereira to replace Emanuel Mammana

• Pereira is expected to earn €52,000 per week at Toulouse until 2023
• A professional footballer for four years, Pereira made 68 appearances for Belenenses
• The 19-year-old is seen as the future in defence for the Portuguese national team

Toulouse manager Dominique Arribage has moved immediately following the departure of Toulouse captain Emanuel Mammana to Arsenal by signing 19-year-old Paulo Pereira from Belenenses for a transfer fee of €20 million. The Portuguese international is set to earn €52,000 per week, signing a contract which will see him at Toulouse until 2023.

A professional footballer for the past four years, Pereira has made 68 appearances for Belenenses during his time at the club. In 2018, Pereira made his international debut against Poland with the defender being seen as the future in defence for the Portuguese national team.

“The departure of Emanuel is certainly tough but all of the qualities in which I saw in him at a young age I also see in Paulo.” said Toulouse manager Dominique Arribage. “He is a player who displays incredibly strong mental application for someone his age and I believe he can come into the first team squad and make an immediate impact.” he added.

Continuing to battle Paris Saint-Germain, Toulouse are looking to gain an advantage in the Ligue 1 title race while they continue to compete in the UEFA Champions League and French Cup. Should the race for the title go down to the last fixture, the title will be decided when both sides meet at Parc des Princes.
Certainly wouldn't expect a player of such quality to be playing for Belenenses! Hope the deal works out for you man :)
