Antipas set for Euro trip
Motor Action coach Joey Antipas will leave for a one-month coaching attachment with German champions Borussia Dortmund and Danish top flight outfit Brondy FC next month.
The former Warriors assistant coach will be returning to Europe for the second time in two years following a similar arrangement in 2011, where he had a stint with the Bundesliga giants and VFL Bochum of Denmark.
Antipas, who last year received a wholly suspended five-year sentence for his involvement in the Asiagate match-fixing scandal, believes the attachments will equip him with modern coaching trends in football.
“I will be going to Denmark and Germany for a coaching attachment and this will help me enhance my knowledge of the game and mingling with some of the top players in the world. This will also help me learn modern techniques and modern coaching networks of the game. I did the same thing in 2011 and it was a great experience.
“As coaches we need to continue learning because modern football is evolving a lot and you can’t just sit back and relax and think you know everything. Football is now different to what it used to be so these attachments really help me as a coach. I will never stop learning as long as I am still in football,” Antipas said.
Motor Action, who had one of their worst seasons in the Premiership last year, finishing eighth and 28 points behind champions Dynamos, are hoping to benefit immensely from Antipas’ Europe sojourn ahead of the upcoming new season.
