Thanks Mike!

 

I am going to repost this video because it features one of the best defenders in the world talking about how Rafa is an incredible coach. 

 

 

The Rafa talk starts at 5:45.

 

He was the first to me this way: tactics, using glasses and then video. He trusted me to play football at the highest level. He treats everyone how they deserve to be treated. He doesn't have a problem saying things to people's faces. When I arrived, for the first six months I played every game. He  always let me play, even if I made mistakes. He always put me in a position to learn to play at this level. He really helped me grow in this respect and he managed me very well. People saw my first year as a failure but I felt it was a very important year because I learned so much about myself and about football, about tactics. When I arrived I wasn't ready, I needed time  and he understood that.

 

Who do you want to rebuild a club from the ground up?

 

(Of course, we haven't a chance in hell of attracting the likes of Koulibaly. Don't believe it.)
