Everyone wants to progress. I'm not talking only about the footballers. We're choosing the direction where we develop ourselves, according to our own priorities. Sometimes unconsciously. For some it's money. For others, knowledge. Social status. Or fulfilling your dream, or being true to yourself. Football locker room is no different - everyone wants to progress. This goal is more common than simply winning.

This coach is so far famous for his work with the junior teams, with whom he won everything there is to win. Now he’s trying to achieve success with seniors. He believes his philosophy will guide him to the top.

Coach, you are coming from youth football, where no one would question your achievements. But working with the seniors is really something else.

Everything is something else, editor. Working with every junior team I've worked with has been different every single time, because the people were different. As the old saying goes: you never step in the same river twice. But the people get it wrong, they think it's a warning. And it's about the river changing, even if it looks the same from the bank.

That's what you're famous for, and I wonder how it will work.

What do you mean?

Philosophical nods. And I can respect that, but I also wonder: this could have worked on the young players who were just getting started in football. But the old timers? The players who have had ten diferent trainers? I wonder what's their perspective, to put it mildly.

They have the right to see it any way they want. More - I'll love to hear about their previous experiences with coaches. Those who have had ten are first in the line, because they have the most to talk about. In the end, no one needs explaining that we share a common goal. Does the editor know what is it?

Like everyone's - victory.

No

You're not interested in winning? Well, if you want to lose, it might be quite eas…

I appreciate your sense of humor, editor. Usually it's a sign of intelligence. Just remember, usually, not always.

To respond to your question - everyone wants to progress. I'm not talking only about the footballers. We're choosing the direction where we develop ourselves, according to our own priorities. Sometimes unconsciously. For some it's money. For others, knowledge. Social status. Or fulfilling your dream, or being true to yourself. Football locker room is no different - everyone wants to progress. This goal is more common than simply winning.

Do you know the players who don't want to win?

Of course, every player knows them. If you're on the bench, your best shot at changing your position - which doesn't require you to practice a lot - is your team losing a few matches. This might be cynical, but it's true. But progress is the same for everyone, no matter what's your status in the team.

But you're facing the same challenge. The one on the bench won't advance as much as the one on the first team.

Progress is so much more complicated, dear editor, than playing on the first team. It's different for everyone. It's one's own. And despite your doubts, I don't think you question that if everyone in my team wants to progress, we will make a dangerous team?

If you put it together tactically.

I will, because I'm no different: I want to progress, too.
