Dion has made regular visits to the Liverpool Football Club Academy over the past ten years. It is very rare that we allow a visiting coach to lead any coaching sessions with our elite groups. However, in Dion’s case, we were convinced that the players would enjoy and learn from his sessions. He has worked with all of our age groups from Under 9 to Under 18. He has earned a reputation for creating and delivering skills sessions for individual players to work with the ball in a fun and testing environment.
He has shown a tremendous work ethic and professionalism in all of his dealings in his visits to our Academy. He is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic coach who gains the respect of his players and his peers. He has excellent relationships with all of our staff and he has shown the qualities needed to work in a team – as a member of the coaches who take the elite teams and as one to fit in with the whole Academy staff.
As a measure of his dedication to football, he has visited and worked in many different countries in a variety of situations. He has a great appetite for learning about the game and he is a real forward thinker on the future development of football coaching and all connected topics.
I strongly recommend Dion to you without reservation.
