After Ecuador’s 9-0 win against Fiji, for the Sub 20 worldthe Argentine Rodolfo Zapatawho managed Oceania’s youth team until a month ago, destroyed the team he had left when he carried out a doping check on the team and two footballers tested positive for marijuana.
Through a harsh post written in English on his Instagram account, the coach did not mention Fiji or its footballers but it was clear the reference to footballers who are not professionals and charge a daily allowance of $60 in a good quality country of life.
“Discipline off the pitch represents play on the pitch. The difference between a good player and an average player will probably be how you live your life after each training session. When players are disciplined off the pitch, they can play better on the pitch, focus on the game and not be distracted by other things” Zapata began.
“Sleep well, eat healthy, no drugs or alcohol… and that depends on each player. Being on time for training and matches, following a healthy diet and lifestyle and being responsible are some of the key elements of discipline off the pitch.”
The Argentine highlighted in his message the keys to “focus, discipline, hard work, goal setting and the excitement of finally achieving your goals.” “All of these are life lessons. But don’t worry, if you don’t discipline yourself, the world will discipline you. Without discipline, success is impossible, period,” she concluded.
