World Book Day

Mr Steadman is currently reading a book entitled ‘Barcelona – the Making of the Greatest Team in the World’ written by Graham Hunter.  In the book , there is a quote by Pep Guardiola, the hugely successful former Barcelona and now Manchester City coach, which Mr Steadman wants to share as it epitomises the importance of individual/collective responsibility, being a team player and winning in the ‘right’ way:

“Winning is not incompatible with good early training.  On the contrary, good early training means that youngsters develop into players who win, but who win the right way.  They respect their opponents, behave at all times as representatives of the club (school), accept that there is someone in charge, have tactical discipline and work hard at training.  That is the way to win.”
