It fits into a Club & Academy leader or a team leader that could work under the name Head Coach. The Master Coach is well prepared, concentrated, and disciplined in his/her way of being and has learned to control structures and be clear and determined. Of course, the Master Coach should be a role model to all other coaches and his/her own playing ability skills are very high. Playing with the best juniors and international players should not be a problem.
