WFA Sweden – Podcast

Holländske supertränaren: ”Inga kortare utbildningar för gamla spelare – utan längre”

Schermafbeelding 2015-11-23 om 14.04.43Raymond Verheijen, 44, har tagit flera VM- och EM-medaljer som assisterande tränare.Han sågar tanken på gräddfiler för gamla spelare. – De borde få längre utbildning för att ta igen vad de missat under sina 20 år som spelare, säger han i podcasten Lundh.

I internationell fotboll är Raymond Verheijen både välkänd och ökänd. Den holländske tränaren har ofta fått rubriker för att han gått hårt åt gamla managers sätt att träna spelare och inte sällan gett sig på Europas storklubbar. I avsnitt 78 av podcasten Lundh är Verheijen gäst i samband med en tränarutbildning i Stockholm och ger bland annat sin syn på att gamla storspelare ofta vill ha en gräddfil och slippa den vanliga utbildningen.
