Coaching Philosophy

My coaching philosophy is heavily predicated on technical dominance of the ball coupled with the principles of positional play (Juego de Posicion). A progressive approach to soccer, helping to develop creative and problem solving players that can integrate in to any team.

Quote

"Technique is not being able to juggle a ball 1000 times. Anyone can do that by practicing. Then you can work in the circus. Technique is passing the ball with one touch, with the right speed, at the right foot of your team mate".

Favorite Team

Barcelona. My team, my family's team, where I met my wife and where I got married.
