I don't blame the players today for the money. I blame the owners. They started it. They wanna give it to 'em? More power to 'em.
The trouble is not that players have sex the night before a game. It's that they stay out all night looking for it.
Young players need freedom of expression to develop as creative players... they should be encouraged to try skills without fear of failure.
Mentally, the only players who survive in the pros are the ones able to manage all their responsibilities. Everybody struggles in different ways.
I wanted the players to feel like they were part of a family, to be conscious of that controlled togetherness as they made that slow entrance onto the field. It had a great psychological effect on the opposing team, too. They'd never seen anything like it.
The best thing you can say about any coach is his players play hard for him.
Heroes are people who are all good with no bad in them. That's the way I always saw Joe DiMaggio. He was beyond question one of the greatest players of the century.
I was one of seven, and we took a lot of road trips - long road trips. And this was before iPhones and iPads and DVD players in cars. I remember how novel it was when I got my own Walkman so I could listen to music.
With the recent addition of a full soundtrack and the players map, millions of Poptropicans around the globe are now fully immersed in a multimedia gaming experience when they embark on our high quality adventures.
You don't buy experience at the pharmacy. You acquire it through games over time. Every player must go through that, but when the federation hired me, they told me they wanted new players and young players who will prepare for the future.

No coach has ever won a game by what he knows; it's what his players know that counts.

The only players I hurt with my words are the ones who have an inflated opinion of their ability. I can't worry about that.
You have to be able to psychologically help your players, support-wise, be in touch with them, so I think managing people is very important.

One time I was doing a speech to a group of kids, and just before I get there, I see this little kid crying. I found out they just lost a game, and he was the losing pitcher. I went over there, put my arm around him, and said, 'What are you crying for? When major league players lose, they don't cry.'
Seve Ballesteros was the best trouble-shot player who ever lived. It didn't matter how far in the woods you put that guy, he'd find a way to get out. But Seve inadvertently put a lot of big numbers on the scorecards of average players, because he inspired them to take dumb chances.
Football has an important role to play in society. Players should have a sense of social responsibility, have a moral dimension to them which shows up in good conduct.
Vicente del Bosque

Not just the fans and players, but everybody in Brazil lets us know that they expect it. Our president, people in politics, all tell us to come back with the World Cup.
I set myself up to be a bass guitarist and bass players get a lot more work than people like me.
