Nigel at St. George's Park

16 October 2013

Manager on his coaching philosophy

Earlier this year Nigel Adkins was a special guest at St. George's Park, as he took part in the FA Coaches’ Conference - and Reading fans can now watch a video of his exclusive talk. 

The Royals boss spoke in depth about his management philosophy with former England goalkeeper Ray Clemence, and gave an insight into how he first entered into the world of management - answering questions from a number of visiting delegates. 

"Being shoulder to shoulder with somebody to talk about ideas, opinions - if you can just talk about it and go through it that's important," he said.

"Opportunities are limited at times so when you are in the game you've got to work really hard to stay in it. These [conferences] are brilliant.  There are 400 people in the room and the knowledge that is here, especially for the youngsters to go up and speak to somebody is great."
