I Love Futbol!

This quote from long time soccer coach, Manfred Schellscheidt, gets it right about the beautiful game, how it flows through the moment, for each player on the field:

The game is the best teacher. The coach is really a substitute voice. We want the players to hear the silent voice, the game. The game is actually talking to you. All the questions will come from the game and so will the answers.

Now I love Messi’s game, and am a Barca fan. But I have to go old school here and bring up Zidane, the current coach of the Royalistas (arch rival, Real Madrid). Like Messi, the silent voice of the game sang beautifully for him.

Dance brother Zidane, dance….

Blue Swerver, Zinidine Zidane
