VIDEO: Stramaccioni loses it!

Esteghlal boss Andrea Stramaccioni had his Gattuso-Trapattoni-Malesani moment as he accused the Iranian club of ‘cutting off his translator’ in a rant.

Stramaccioni was only appointed Esteghlal boss in June, but already there have been fears he could walk out on the club, amidst disagreements over transfer strategy.

The 43-year-old stayed to oversee their opening League game of the new season, but he let rip after having watched them lose 1-0 to Machine Sazi.

Stramaccioni to quit Esteghlal

Andrea Stramaccioni’s experience in Iran with Esteghlal FC could be over already, with reports he’ll terminate his contract by mutual consent.

The former Inter and Udinese Coach only signed on June 13, with a contract that was meant to run to June 2022.

However, according to Tuttomercatoweb, the tactician and agent Federico Pastorello are in talks with Esteghlal to break off the deal before the season even begins.

Sky Sport Italia reports Stramaccioni has signed a two-year contract, with the option for a third, worth €1.6m a season.

The 43-year-old was considered one of Italian football’s most promising young Coaches when he guided Inter’s Primavera side to glory in the precursor to the UEFA Youth League in 2012.

He was then promoted to the Nerazzurri’s first team but lasted only 14 months at the helm.

Report: No Strama for Villa

Andrea Stramaccioni is unlikely to become Aston Villa’s next manager as the English club have reportedly targeted Thierry Henry.

Stramaccioni was said to be a leading candidate to replace Steve Bruce, but The Times claims Henry is the favourite to take over, with former Chelsea defender John Terry assisting him.

The former Juventus attacker has been part of Belgium’s backroom staff since 2016 and had been linked with the Villa job over the summer.

Stramaccioni to Aston Villa?

Former Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni is reportedly a leading candidate to become the next manager of English club Aston Villa.

Calciomercato.com and Calciomercato.it cite reports in England, which claim Villa have targeted Stramaccioni to replace Steve Bruce.

Bruce’s position seems increasingly insecure as the former European Cup winners have won just three of their opening nine games in the EFL Championship.

However, a change would not be imminent as ‘the next few games will be decisive’ for the ex-Manchester United defender.
