From Owen Slot, in today’s Times, writing about the problem with French coaching. Rang a bell.

In other words, there is a tried and tested pathway, here, a system designed to give coaches learning and experience beyond what came second nature to them as players. This is where France is light years behind. One of the clichés among modern players is their desire to learn every day. If there is one way to infuriate a player, then it is to give him a coach from who he does not learn. And the surest way to create such a coach is to promote them from within the team, from senior player to coach, without extra learning or experience, because that is when you get a coach who can only regurgitate the lessons that he himself was taught. That is the process from which so many French coaches are created.

Was he talking about national coaches or club ones? French coaches have a pretty good record of winning European cups...
