the book of the values of the mercury-Cups shows the correct behavior for players, coaches and spectators. This time it's about to be a fair loser.
County – you Know, what is a world? We don't know it well, and sincerely hope to never know. But what is the Bayern this evening in front of a good 20 years, is likely to have been for her so something Similar. From heaven to hell within seconds, two goals in injury time. Over the beautiful, long-held dream of victory in the Champions League. The big Triumph is now celebrating Manchester United, this was actually defeated already. It must be a terrible feeling to preserve in these moments of attitude, which requires almost superhuman powers.
Hitzfeld: Even at low-a great winner
turned out to be exactly in these minutes from a loser to a big winner. The coach, Ottmar Hitzfeld would have had every reason to quarrel with his players and the fate to kick in tons, to throw objects or evil words. However, he is marched off from one of his men to the other, to each individual who lay there crying and stunned, on the grass or crouched. He has comforted each of them. For him it were not the scapegoats, who had given away the middle, also his Triumph lightly. There were people who needed consolation. Also Ottmar Hitzfeld would have required him, but has answered the questions of the Reporter gently smiling, sober analysis, without charges and without bitterness in his voice.
It was a great Moment for FC Bayern, for football, for Sport. A man has to have a role model held for many other similar bitter defeats never experienced, but have proven to be in far less dramatic situations, much less attitude.
We have reminded us of unspeakable performances of some of the gentlemen, to absurd to blame any sportiness assignments, remote. And we have thought of many youth coaches that are actually much more of a duty to act as a role model.
recently, we a F-youth tournament where in the finals the team of fame club of rich pretty chanceless against their chances of success counterparties have witnessed has been. The coach, visibly surprised and overwhelmed by the Situation, is wild been fuchtelnd on the line, has first his players and then the referee yelled. And finally – because of an alleged Foul was not whistled, his boy, quivering with rage, from the field brought. The man just couldn't lose, he never has learned it. How are the children?
"is to convey the goal of the mercury CUP it,
that is, exemplary handling forms
and for a good each other to worry about."
Philipp Lahm, world champion 2014
Some of the youth coaches of their role model, obviously not aware of, do not suspect, how much the children just from your behavior. The Trainer begins to rant at the referee, so do the children; no longer will you lose the game, but the Impartial steal you the victory. The Coach is fuming on the sidelines, drops people's inhibitions to try it with cigarettes. The coach in the presence of his team regularly drink one over the thirst, you will also steer clear of its players is hardly the alcohol.
Trainer also sports teachers in the field of youth a great educational task. No, you do not have to occur with a halo. You must always be aware that the Sport also has an important social function that you learn in sports to respect his opponent, to comply with the rules, with low deal were. With the Latter many problems.
Therefore, the appearance of Ottmar Hitzfeld was in Barcelona a great moment for the Sport. Because it is far more difficult to be a good loser than a big winner.
