I think it was a deserved win against a very strong team and we played like people know Leverkusen can play. It is this insistence on the way his team play almost irrespective of the result that makes Schmidt stand out.
This is something Schmidt also sees in Tottenham. Instead this is Tottenham football. It will be a fascinating clash of philosophies at the BayArena on Tuesday.
Both sides are desperate for a win with only a point separating them in second and third place of Group E and both will be confident of winning.
Only one thing is guaranteed: Order by newest oldest recommendations. His principles have led to some high scoring games, including when Salzburg beat Ajax on aggregate in the Europa League.
So what went wrong for Schmidt? One issue which he created for himself was that success breeds expectation. Leverkusen were thought to be able to challenge Bayern Munich this season and definitely be part of a big three with Borussia Dortmund.
Bielsa , another manager with a fierce press famously tended to wear his sides out towards the end of season. Schmidt would see his team tire in a different way.
They would often tire late in games and would always have a lull in the season. It would not necessarily be at the end of the season but they would always go through a patchy spell.
Perhaps the biggest issue for Schmidt was his reluctance to change. This could be seen with defeats in his final month to Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund which both seemed to go the same way as initial lines of resistance were easily punctured.
Teams that were quick and incisive could isolate the centre backs. This was part of the reason that they concede a lot of good shots.
They have also conceded a large amount of goals from set pieces. Watching his sides play can also be a weird experience.
It is a different type of football which often seems like just watching lots of chasing while odder tactics include giving the ball away in certain areas.
When it is going well you can ignore all the negatives, when the results go the wrong way you start to feel he is just not worth the trouble. Schmidt has been mentioned quite prominently for many jobs over the last few years including the Arsenal one.
He was also recently mentioned in connection with the Leicester job. The Premier League seems to have not had as much tactical variation as other big European leagues and Schmidt would be an intriguing hire.
It would be a more agresssive version of Jurgen Klopp who has been lauded since his arrival in England. I would be surprised if a German team hired him as he currently has a bit of a bad reputation in Germany.
Given his links with Red Bull teams, he could be a name to watch. He also led them to the round of sixteen of the UEFA Europa League before being beaten by Basel 2—1 in the second leg to lose the match on aggregate after drawing the first game 0—0.
On 25 April , Bayer Leverkusen hired Schmidt to become the head coach at the start of the —15 season. On 21 February , Schmidt was sent off by the referee Felix Zwayer in a game against Dortmund after disputing a free kick that led to a goal for Dortmund, the only goal of the game.
Schmidt initially refused to leave, causing the referee to suspend the game and lead the players off the field, causing an eight-minute delay, before the game resumed without Schmidt on the field.
In June , it was announced that Schmidt joined Chinese side Beijing Sinobo Guoan on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Leaving Karim Bellarabi and Chicharito on the bench here felt like a final throw of the dice — and not one that ever seemed especially likely to have the desired effect.
It was already too late. If we are being less charitable, the whole Schmidt ride has been a rollercoaster of soaring peaks and alarming troughs.
The beauty of when it all clicks , which led to him being linked with the Bayern and Arsenal jobs down the line, glossed over the stumbles.
Last term, it was a poor restart post-Christmas that was the major wobble before they locked into gear. These dips had become the norm.
The familiar, exhilarating pressing had become a scrappy parody of itself. Here, it seemed like a loss of control.
His successor will be charged with bringing fresh identity to a highly talented squad and he will have to do it quickly, with Ömer Toprak already off to Dortmund in the summer and others unsettled.
For the future, as well as the present, Leverkusen could not wait any longer. The one disappointment was a thigh injury to Marco Reus that will keep him out until March, at the end of a week in which his good friend Mario Götze was ruled out indefinitely with a metabolic condition.
The under-pressure coach, Markus Weinzierl, will thank goodness for home comforts anyway. Gladbach do not have many visitors who they enjoy seeing quite as much as Die Könisgblauen , having now beaten them on eight of their last nine visits.
It has not been that easy on his former colleague Alexander Nouri either, with his team picking up more injuries here, including Clemens Fritz again and Zlatko Junuzovic.

The defence looked disjointed, the midfield had no rhythm and, more surprisingly, the forward line were finding it difficult to poke home even the simplest of chances.
Chicharito finally got going again after the relationship was repaired at the Florida Cup. Christmas brought a time of reflection and when the squad departed for their Florida winter training camp it looked like Schmidt was prepared to work with the underperforming star.
The American sun looked to have done the trick, along with the newly appointed Jörn Wolf. Leverkusen flew out of the winter break and destroyed highflying Hertha Berlin Even Chicharito was back in on the act, this time turning provider for Ömer Toprak after only 12 minutes, had Schmidt turned the corner?
Unfortunately for Leverkusen the answer seems to be no. After playing some scintillating attacking football for 45 minutes against Gladbach on Matchday 18 they went into the half-time break up.
What followed in the second 45 minutes was one of the biggest collapses seen in the Bundesliga for a long time. As fixtures go this was a disaster, Leverkusen crumbled and the watching Schmidt could offer little.
Three tactical substitutions failed to address any of the obvious issues. His game plan had been worked out, and bettered, by Dieter Hecking in 15 half-time minutes.
Leverkusen find themselves in eighth, the top four a disappearing dream—the relegation playoff only three poor results below them. Without doubt Leverkusen could find themselves in a scrap come the end of February.
With four difficult upcoming fixtures their atrocious roller-coaster form must be addressed. The side from the Spanish capital will be overwhelming favourites to progress.
Matchday 19 sees a difficult trip to the Volksparkstadion and anything less than three points could see the final coating of Teflon disappear from Roger Schmidt.
When all those around you have changed, and results stay the same, at some point Völler must turn his attention to the only constant: Having been a regular at Liverpool FC since the late 80s he also has a passion for the Bundesliga and all things German.
Contributing to a number of local, national and international publications he is focused on analysis and the stories behind the goals.
He can be found somewhere between the Kop and Yellow Wall. Follow Chris Williams on Twitter: Your email address will not be published.
