It has been three weeks since Wilfried Nancy became the head coach of CF Montreal and he has no regrets at all.
“When you are an assistant, you will provide ideas to the coach, and he or she will accept or not accept it based on how he or she feels.”
“When you are a coach, you have an idea and work with the “staff” to put it into practice.”
But now, Nancy finds herself in an unusual situation, because she can only participate in two friendly matches before the start of the season to prepare for her team, that is, against Toronto Football Club on April 17.
“With more friendliness, I could have tried more things. There, it’s not that I won’t try, but I will try to save time.
“Will be a player ready for the first game. Yes [ce] Will it become a holder? I really don’t like that noun very much. “
He admitted that since the club’s more than a dozen players left wearing the colors of their respective countries, he still pays attention to the international meeting last week.
“But I eat salt, because every coach has their requirements.”
At the beginning of this winter, the team announced that most of the preparations will be carried out in Montreal to prevent players from leaving their families for too long.
Facts have proved that this decision is a good decision, because the team has been training for more than a week, and this has rarely happened in March for ten years.
Nancy insisted: “Preparation in Montreal is essential.” We weighed the pros and cons, knowing that we would be away for a long time. “
“This is the first time in history that we have fully prepared synthetic fibers, but due to the weather, we were able to exercise on the lawn. During the first training on the lawn, I saw the children.”
