I can't be a hypocrite as a coach because as a player that's what I wanted. I wanted feedback, I wanted communication from the boss. I showed up for work, you can yell at me if you want, but I want input. So that's the kind of coach I want to be.
Growing up as a kid my father was British and a soccer player. His idol was a guy that passed the ball a lot, Stanley Matthews. Our family thought if you could be unselfish your teammates would always like you.
I was a punk. I think that's why I'm such a good person now, because I was such a bad guy then.
Even the superstars need to be coached once in awhile.
You eat and sleep it all day long and play on the streets until mom calls you in. My story is no different than anybody else's.
