The Newcastle has already started planning the future after the arrival of the money from its new owner, a Saudi fund, and one of the first changes it intends to undertake is in the sports management, where it has aimed the name of Luis Ocampos.
The Portuguese leader made champions of France to Monaco and to Lille, where he worked until last summer, and, according to the English media, his profile adapts to what they are looking for in Newcastle, which does not intend to become a wasteful club, but to create a sustainable model.
In that aspect it stands out Ocampos, whose management led to Monaco from Kylian Mbappé to be proclaimed champion of France and a semi-finals of the Champions League and to Lille to win the last French league. Some of his greatest discoveries in these years have been those of Mbappé himself, Fabinho, now at Liverpool, Bernardo Silva, who plays for Manchester City, and Anthony Martial, at Manchester United. What’s more, Ocampos also worked with José Mourinho during his stay on the Real Madrid bench.
Ocampos has been free since leaving Lille at the end of last season and could adjust to a club like Newcastle that is beginning its renewal. Steve Bruce, the current coach, is expected to be fired in the coming days, while the first signings will arrive in winter.
