The Premier League in England is nearing its conclusion, with 3 teams due to be relegated to the lower league. There are a number of teams still in the frame to go down and they have 6 games left to save themselves.
One of the teams in danger lost again on Saturday and their manager gave a rallying cry in the post match interview about their next game, against one of their rivals for relegation. It’s a must win game and this is what he said:
“They need to listen — that’s all they need to do,” the manager said of his team. “That’s what they are paid to do. None of those guys are ever going to be as good as I am at what I do, because they are only players and I am the manager, so make sure you listen to me.”
Come next saturday I can imagine his players will be busting a gut to do their best for him, with these stirring words ringing in their ears……..
Brian Williams was a pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, here’s his thoughts:
“You are only as good as the coach thinks you are.”
I hope the Premier League manager’s players don’t play down to his expectations of them….
