How do you feel your values ​​and working methods fit in with NF Academy?

I strongly believe that my values ​​and working methods as a coach match NF Academys. For me, both as a person and as a coach, values ​​are the most important aspect of training. I have a strong belief in honesty, humility, hard work, emotions, mental and social satisfaction for everyone, and the most important value of them all, that the player always comes first.

Regarding working methods, NF Academy always seeks to convey understanding of the game, by combining the search for better decisions with correct guiding. It’s important to me to always ask players what’s behind their decisions.
