Favourite football event: World Cup as you get to watch all of the best players in the world.
Best thing about coaching kids: As a coach, it’s easy to lose sight of what is truly important. It’s not all about the winning – it’s about teaching kids about life, how to be happy and successful, how to be a good friend and teammate and how to live with integrity and confidence.
One reason that you love Aphrodite Hills: It’s a stunning resort, everyone is so friendly. We also have the benefit of running the only Soccer School on the island that is open all year round.
