The national team coach announced that the project he is involved in is linked to the United States’ qualification for the Qatar World Cup in 2022 and confirmed that in the last decade the American country realized that “to develop top-level footballers they had to change the plan.”“One of the things that caught my attention the most when I arrived in the sport is the individualized work, not only of the coaches but of the players.. But soccer is different and the mistake comes there. There are players with very good technical qualities but they do not know how to develop it in a context, understand what the rival is doing and what is around him, “he said.”One of the changes in the United States is the change in this methodology, now there tends to be much less individualization and more collective games“he added.Estevez said that he does not close “the door” to a return to Spain, but that his family is adapted in the United States. “Once you establish yourself in a site, you make contacts and many times you get more options in the place where you carry out your work than in Spain.. My family is adapted and likes to live here, “he concluded. The Spanish coach and second coach of the United States soccer team, Nico Estévez, He explained that several states of the North American country have tightened their measures to avoid contagion by coronavirus after seeing what has happened in cities like New York and he confessed that at the beginning of the crisis “it was seen from afar” and most of the society thought that it would not affect them.“Here at first it looked from afar, like it was not going to affect, but now that it is entering so strongly in New York and New Jersey there is some concern and the rest of the country’s states are trying to take other measures so that what happens in New York does not happen, “Estévez said in a virtual conference organized by the Valencian Community Football Federation (FFCV).The Valencian coach, who in his time in Spain he managed to lead Valencia in two official matches in the transition between Djukic and Pizzi, works and lives in Chicago for a year after joining the United States national team coach, Gregg Berhalter, who recruited him in 2014 to work for the Columbus Crew, the top division in American football.last_img read more
