In an interview with Sport Bild, the French champion and current Paulo Sousa’s technical collaborator at Salernitana spoke about his goals: “I had the best relationship as a player with him, Hitzfeld and Heynckes”
A goal. And a tip. When interviewed, Franck Ribery, Paulo Sousa’s current technical collaborator at Salernitana, intends to pursue a coaching career. He wants to do it keeping in mind the teachings of some holy men with whom he worked in his years at Bayern Munich: “My goal is to become a coach – admitted the French to Sport Bild -. In my 12 years at Bayern the best relationship I had it with Hitzfeld, Heynckes and Ancelotti, who is a truly exceptional man. With them I made the most of it because my head was free of thoughts and I enjoyed myself like a child”. This is why Ribery is convinced that it is important to create a human relationship with the players, to ensure that they perform at their best.
However, the former Bayern player also spoke about Gnabry and Sané, who replaced him and Robben on the wing. “Bayern players need to have fire inside – he explained -. It’s a question of approach. Both are top level players, with great potential. They are fast, technical, have a good shot. “I know both can improve. I had to fight hard to have the chance to stay at Bayern. To be among the best in the world you have to work hard. My goal was to get to the top.” And the same was true for Robben: “He worked like crazy every day. He too had fire burning inside. To stay at those levels, you have to want to improve every day. Regardless of the value that the player has already shown to have. We have to keep pushing on the accelerator.” And darting on the wing. Or, having changed jobs, be a guide for your players.
