A Day in the Life of a Football Coach #1

I received a call from a mother telling me that her son was unable to attend football training because he was still feeling the body aches from last Wednesday’s football training. I was worried and asked whether he was getting enough protein, carbohydrates and sleep. Mum said yes and the conversation went on to addressing her elder son and other stuff.

So at training, I asked the boys whether anyone felt any ache after last Wednesday’s soccer training and majority who attended put up their hands. Then I saw this boy who put up his hand. I asked him that since he didnt attend last training, how come he had an ache.

“I got stomach ache that day coach.”
