The study has been carried out in the past on the other side of the Channel, its results are supported by analyzes carried out by French sports economists Luc Arrondel, Richard Duhautois and Cédric Zimmer. Over the 20 years of Ligue 1 that the trio has scrutinized, from 1998 to 2018, there is no evidence that a change of coach has any influence on a team's results. A somewhat sad observation ... This season in L1, eight clubs have already tested several coaches on their bench - and some rather twice than once! In Metz (Vincent Hognon then Frédéric Antonetti), in Dijon (Stéphane Jobard then David Linarès), in Nice (Patrick Vieira then Adrian Ursea), in Nantes (Christian Gourcuff then Patrick Collot then Raymond Domenech then Antoine Kombouaré), in Paris (Thomas Tuchel then Mauricio Pochettino), in Marseille (André Villas-Boas then Nasser Larguet then Jorge Sampaoli), in Nîmes (Jérôme Arpinon then Pascal Plancque) and in Rennes (Julien Stéphan then Phillipe Bizeul, pending the arrival of another strategist ), we will therefore have tried the famous blow of electroshock. In vain a priori. “In football, analyzing 'leadership' is like studying the impact of a coach on results. And one way to test its importance - or not - is to measure the effect of a change on the bench during the season. Conclusion: There is a relative academic consensus that the change of coach has little impact on the results of the team, except perhaps in the short term. This is confirmed by our study on L1, breath relayed by France Info Luc Arrondel, who works at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). Our analysis shows that there could be an improvement in results in the short term after the change of coach (say the five games after dismissal) but only at home. "The salary of the players takes precedence over the coach This rebound - quite relative - observed, the researchers attribute it to two factors, essentially:" It is easier to climb up the standings after poor results (when you have hit rock bottom, we can only go back) and the problem of "reverse causality": it is the teams in difficulty who dismiss their coach. "But again:" The improvement in results at home could be explained more by the pressure exerted by the supporters on their team than by the differences in skills between the old and the new coach. "Also the British Simon Kuper and Stefan Symanski - pioneers in the study of the question - they want to be severe in their judgment of the coaching profession, as Luc Arrondel reminds us:" Kuper and Szymanski indeed affirm in a provocative manner that coaches "bring so little that they could just as easily be replaced by secretaries, or by the president, even a teddy bear, without this changing the ranking of the club ...". "According to these last two economists, only" the efficiency of the players' labor market "" which wants the salaries of footballers to explain the greater part of the team's results "matters.

Does the DFB get involved with the revolutionary? .
Hansi Flick remains a preferred candidate for the DFB as the new national coach. Ralf Rangnick, on the other hand, has publicly expressed his interest.
