Head Coach / Owner
"To begin with I am looking to see what the players specific needs are, to then create an individual training programme for advanced development. Being a creative midfield player myself I specialise in ball manipulation, ball control, passing techniques over short and long distances, and finishing.
A key focus of my work is decision making and I like to give my players multiple options to chose from, to then give them freedom to find the most effective results. I also like to delve into psychological aspects of the game and what is needed to play at a high competitive/elite level".
"You play at the rhythm you train at. If you train badly, you play badly. If you work like a beast in training, you play the same way"
"As a coach we can motivate players to perform, but attitude will determine how well the player performs.
Find the player with that attitude, then motivation is no longer needed from the coach. This is the key to building success"
"Some players base their decision on their current situation. Intelligent players have already evaluated that decision before the ball arrives. The more situations they find themselves in, the quicker the solution will come to them, but only if they are being educated or guided in the right way"
