PERSONAL:

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT COACHING FOOTBALLERS?

The vibe and the culture. Footy players don’t tend to take themselves too seriously and like to enjoy the process of getting better instead of just focusing on getting the outcome. A lot more fun to work with.

WHICH MOVIE & OR BOOK HAS IMPACTED YOU?

Tough question, I’m a big movie and TV guy so there’s a lot to choose from, and all good stories leave an impact somehow. Some would be Baby Driver, Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but there are plenty more.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE WAY TO SPEND YOUR DAY OFF?

Well, love some movies and games. Other than that the gym or finding an excuse to see friends.

WHICH SONG DO YOU NEVER GET SICK OF LISTENING TO?

Naturally, there are a few. Hypnotize – Biggie, Bring the Ruckus – Wu-Tang Clan, Everlong – Foo Fighters, Outlaw Torn – Metallica, Beyond the Sea – Bobby Darin

FAVOURITE DESTINATION FOR A HOLIDAY AND WHY?

Italy or Germany. Not that I’ve been but would like to because of the amount of history, culture, and nice food that comes from there.
