Milutinovic, highly amused with Beach Soccer

The Serbian born assures that ?this sport requires lots of strength and technique, and the role of the coach is crucial?


The recently concluded FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2013 ? Asian Qualifier Qatar enjoyed during the final day a very special visit. Bora Milutinovic, one of the most renowned football coaches in the world and today advisor for Aspire, attended the last matches in the competition, and was highly amused with the level of the competition, as well as the uniqueness of a sport he already knew.

Milutinovic, who is together with Brazilian Carlos Alberto Parreira the only man to have managed five squads in five different FIFA World Cups, pointed that ?a lot of strength is necessary to play beach soccer. You cannot survive in such a tough surface if your physical condition is not optimal?.

Besides, he also reckoned the importance of individual technique. ?Beach Soccer players are very skillful. This game involves a high amount of individual quality to perform most of the actions: ball control, passing, shooting, volleying??, he said.

Always under his analytic eye, the Serbian-born also highlighted the role of the coach in the game. ?The way the coach manages his players, the substitutions, and the choice of each man for each function, is determinant. Tactics have a lot of weight in Beach Soccer, and it absolutely makes the difference. I see coaches such as Ruy Ramos, and I can see how they control the game?.

Milutinovic also wanted to talk about Qatar and their strong bet for Beach Soccer, and the world of football as a whole. ?They are a really welcoming country, and their attitude is amazing. They are all the time willing to improve, willing to get better, willing to grow in organizational and technical aspects. I highly appreciate this attitude and their way of working?.
