    That’s someone who has the intention to be a coach….already working towards that line even before she has quit the game, already doing “bits and pieces” while still active.

    Not watching comedy shows for 6 years after retirement and then suddenly wakes up one day (without having even conducting a soccer clinic for primary school children before) and start scheming to take the National team to the world cup in 2 years….LMAO
