Shared Hand

They want a recurrent sentence: that team needs a firm hand. As if the people who say that had a firm education and they tutor blood. I don´t think that it looks interesting and effective.

A coach is a detachable father; but a father with identical responsibilities in the sport education as a biological father. If you get far away from the guys, you convert that life university, in a nursery or a reformatory. You need a lot from them and make them mature or make them participate from your ideas and how you develop them. It is also important asking them their opinion to involucrate them. That is essential. If you get far away from them with your methods, the distance will be physical and something more irretrievable: emotional.

Players admit failures but not lies, and your relationship should be direct and true. They appreciate it even that they don´t know it; they will remember it during his career. That´s why firm hand does not have to be the most vigorous, not even the soft hand has to be the most stable or sensible. There is always a middle point and a moment for both of them. It always needs a proper measure.

Along my football fan and professional history, I meet more successful teams with charity, respect and personality, than the ones who want to cover their deficiencies with tyranny. If you want and opinion or idea, more than a young player coach advise, don’t let a method ruin your good relationship. Each player of your team need a way to see you and that you can see them. Use your “hand” with ability: the share authority. It will bring good results.

Between fear and pressure

In football, as in life, mind is really important. Having a mind free of ties and prejudice, makes you feel better. These have been proven. My experience tells me that, when you suffer it and you don´t know it, yo lose energy and your efficiency decreases. You fight against your imaginary opponents and the real […]
