Now Sjors Ultee has plenty of time to think about his future. For the moment, he is not in Belgium, Japan or Poland. He fished for his services from those countries, but he doesn’t want to think about a new club until after the winter.
Until then, he’s trying to become a better coach. With the help of Louis van Gaal. Ultee was able to visit his great example in Portugal to talk about the profession. The most important lesson he learned there: have a vision, stick to it and be a good person.
“I think the latter is the most beautiful end of the coaching profession,” says Ultee.
