Another trophy! Keep going on in to fame and glory
Matthaus Takes On New Role
AC Milan manager Lothar Matthaus has capped a good season by taking over his first national side, although not really one you'd quite expect. He has taken over The Cook Islands U21s, in a move almost no-one could have predicted.
Matthaus has apparently been interested in taking up a national role for some months, and indeed he did apply for six teams earlier this season, including the Cook Islands senior side, but was laughed off by all of them. Matthaus has now won another European trophy, and feels it is high time to try again. He also allegedly applied for the vacant Cook Islands B role. He is said to be excited about the prospect of taking on this new challenge, and has promised fans to take the team as far as he can. He apparently hopes this will provide a stepping stone to managing the national team, and maybe even win something with them.
Matthaus' first match in charge of the Cook Islands under-21 side will be at home to Tonga's under-21 side on 12th August 2014. This is a big match for Matthaus to make his international debut in, as there is a big rivalry between Cook Islands and Tonga. Fans are confident that Matthaus will be able to pull off another good result, at his fourth team in three years.
