“I’m not just a maniac playing football manager,” develops Reims coach Will Steele
The Reims coach is annoyed by the caricatures that have been made of him since his arrival in the French League.
Stade Reims will host Olympique de Marseille on Sunday. The shock that Will is still anxiously awaiting because his team is in eighth place in the French League. It is a position that allows the club to dream of a European place. The Belgian coach stated at length during a press conference where he talked about his own training to some extent because he does not possess the certificates required for training in the first division, which forces his club to pay a fine of 25 thousand euros in each meeting.
Not having his Pro UEFA licence, the young manager quickly inherited a reputation that now sticks to his skin, that of a coach trained in the management game Football Manager. A label that does not satisfy the person concerned.
“It’s a myth that we have to break because we have testimonials, whether it’s Didier Digard (nice coach, editor’s note) or me. We have the highest certifications possible or obtainable to date. I repeat, at the age of 30, having a BEPF or professional license is too complicated to enter the course. I couldn’t do that before because I’m only my ageinsisted the insistent technician.Of course, diplomas are important and I’m not just a soccer freak because it’s all wrong.»
