After this weekend I had some doubts about a guys I know who coaches a youth team ( u15) I reckon. I know being a coach is more than just explaining techinque, tactics etc... But also man management.
So I 'm just wondering, do you need to be a good player to be a good coach ( having some credits with your XI)
To continue my story, that guy is a wicketkeeper, pretty good one but his batting is poor.
Always playing defensively as well in league as friendly scoring a max of 2 runs a game, where I score more runs
So what's your opinion about it, I'm not dissing this guy. I do realize that if he knows how to teach it to the kids and they like it it's all good. But the element of being a decent player would be an added value.
