Why is it so difficult to achieve a successful coaching career?
Because the coaching job is not all about football knowledge and experience only – there are some other crucial characteristics and skills of the individual, which are very important, such as: intelligence, character, efficient and quality communication, attitude, courage, responsibility, self-control, cooperation, hard work .. Having behind a successful player’s career is a great advantage in the very start for the coach because charisma of the top player is the key that opens the door to every club, when it comes to getting a job. But what’s next? It turned out that most former top players did not manage to repeat their success in coaching career afterward simply because they thought that the very fact that they were top players would be enough to create a successful coaching career. Only hard-working, dedicated and highly focused coaches, who live for the team, are fully engaged and focused on the daily basis, can achieve a successful coaching career. The secret of success in the coaching profession lies in the willingness of the coach to educate constantly, readiness to be focused on his job solely, and to be persistent and consistent, motivating himself with the higher expectations in the future.
