The return of goalkeeper Krups Jr has been a massive boost to the squad but the coaches came to me after a training session one evening with some news regarding him again. I braced myself for the worst, thinking he can’t be injured again. Luckily it wasn’t such worrying news but the message from the coaches was rather disappointing. They reported back saying there had been some problems in training with the effort he was making and this made me livid. I had to have a word with him, not as his dad but as his boss. I told the coaches to send him to my office before heading home.
Krupesh: Come in!
Krupesh Shah Jr: Hey dad…
Krupesh: No right now I’m your manager and from now on when we are here you will refer to me as sir/boss/gaffer but never dad!
Krupesh Shah Jr: Sorry boss…the coaches said you wanted a word?
Krupesh: Yeah listen mate they’ve been reporting back to me and you’ve done well to come back from injury and slot in again to the first team but just because you’re miles ahead of any other keeper here DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO SLACK OFF IN TRAINING. Do you have any explanation for this?!
Krupesh Shah Jr: That’s not fair I’ve been working hard since coming back from the injury.
Krupesh: To be honest what you feel isn’t relevant here because these coaches out there are watching you and right now I trust their judgements! Any more drops in training and effort and you’ll be on the bench! Do I make myself clear?
Krupesh Shah Jr: Yes sir. Anything else you want to shout at me for while I'm here?
Krupesh: Enough with the attitude and just take this on board. You're a youngster with an unbelievable future ahead of yourself. Take it on the chin. Now get yourself home and I’ll see you at home for dinner
