His motto is Hard Work Pays Off
I played futsal for…6 years.
I have been coaching futsal…for the last two seasons.
Why Futsal? Because it is a very challenging, fast and tactical game where you’re never certain of the result before the final whistle.
I try to… transmit what I’ve learnt to my players. It has been part of my life for these last years.
It’s a pity…seeing so many teams stopping from this wonderful game. Unfortunately it is not easy to run a futsal team nowadays.
Futsal is..a game where as a player you learn a lot of skills especially to think faster and play with both feet. It should not be a game for players who are about to retire but for developing a player; a stepping stone before going into an 11 a-side senior team. Unfortunately some local clubs do not share this view.
I am…satisfied with my team’s performance till now. Obviously I think that we could have done better. My team could have easily played out for the fourth place but a series of injuries and players quitting in mid-season made our task quite difficult. At least we have managed to achieve our objective to finish among the top 8 of the table.
We need to..work harder as a team to achieve better results. Hard training pays off, if don’t you work hard, you can never gain results. This has always been my motto both as a player and now as a coach.
My personal objective is…to improve and gain more experience as a coach. Hopefully I would like to see more competitive teams participating in futsal so that there would be a much balanced league. This is not an easy task as not all clubs have the same resources.
