About: Apart from my wife and family, there is nothing I love more than football. Those moments when you bring a smile to a players face, or see them develop into better footballers and people is priceless. I love football coaching so much because it allows me to impart my knowledge and skills, to make better footballers and people in an enjoyable manner. My favourite football team is Aston Villa (unfortunately some would say), and my favourite players are Franco Baresi, David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane.
