”We’re here to help you, we don’t have all the answers but one thing for sure is that we care about you guys because you’re the future of the soccer (football) in this country (Guyana)”, stated Instructor Juan Carlos Michia, a former Major League Soccer (MLS) player and Coach, during the press brief at the GOA, yesterday.
The other instructor, Lenny Lake, pressed the issue of discipline of being successful, “The good coach is all about conduct and character.
When we leave (Guyana) we must be able to say to CONCACAF that we are satisfied to have licensed coaches not only who can coach but those that have the right character and conduct to develop football in Guyana.”
Meanwhile, head of the GFF Wayne Forde, stressed the need for the development of local players who show immense potential which is usually curtailed in the long run.
“Guyana has the raw talent but we haven’t done much with it in the past”, Forde posited as he reiterated the role of coaches in player development.
