It’s important to think about what athletes value most in a coach. Here’s a nice little article explaining who Ronaldo considers the best coach and why.
“We had an important game in the Champions League and I said, ‘Coach I need to go to see my daddy’ and I was a key player, I was a very important player and he said, ‘Listen, your personal life, your family is the important thing that you have in your life. If you want to go three days, four days, five days you can go’.
“This moment is what I keep for me because it was the most important time in my life and he shared it with me. This is why I respect him and for me he’s the best coach I ever had.”
This is a crucial lesson for us all.
