Advice from the Academy

Edu Rubio is a UEFA Pro Licensed coach who works at MK Dons as the Head of Coach Development & U18 Manager.

Edu joins the PDP team for an interactive discussion which covers a range of topics to help developing coaches.  We question Edu on his personal journey, what coach behaviours he looks for in his staff, implementing a playing style, flexible formations and the importance of authenticity and empathy in coaching.

This is a must watch for coaches of all sports as Edu brings a wealth of knowledge, ideas and experience that can help you improve your own environment.
