My own way is paved with honesty, directness, and discipline. People who know me understand that I am a meticulous worker. Even the smallest mistake needs to be analyzed and remedied. But it is important to me that this is done within the team. For me, community and communication are key factors for success. And with success I do not necessarily mean a victory in the next match – even though it is really nice. But during my career as a coach I have proven more than once that I am not only able to lead experienced players, but also to develop young players. For me, this, too, is success: developing young players, advancing them, and making them a part of the professional team. For instance, seeing Salem Al Dossari, under-21 player at Al-Hilal in Riad, develop from a street soccer player into a national team member gave me great joy.
People who know me also understand that “discipline” is another cobblestone on my path. I attach great importance to discipline in my work. And I am convinced that discipline does not automatically exclude having fun. Fun? Yes, fun! It is important to me, too. For me, a job is not just some kind of occupation for a limited time. I live for my job and I want to have fun doing it and to communicate this to others. For me, this requires identification: when I sign a contract, I fully identify with the goals and tasks at hand and I will give everything for the club. I become part of this club, part of the city, part of the country and its cultural ways of life. I am very happy about getting to know many different clubs, cities, countries, and cultures as part of my job.
