Player respect coach when they feel he can help him excel: Mike Hesson

Player respect coach when they feel he can help him excel: Mike Hesson

New Delhi, May 22 (UNI) Former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson feels that a coach can only gain the respect of a player once the cricketer identifies that the coach can be of some use to him and can make him a better sportsperson.

''Once the player identifies that you are of use to them as a coach, then you’ve got their respect and for some coaches that takes longer time than others," Hesson said on the Star Sports show Cricket Connected.

"When you become useful to a player, they actually think that this guy is going to be helpful for me to get the best out of me as a player. It’s not about just telling them stories about what you used to do as a player, but it is about them genuinely thinking that you can help them become a player, ' he added.

Hesson, who is also the Director of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) franchise in IPL, said that

coaches who are less experienced would exhaust all their personal experiences in the first week of coaching.

"The coaches that are less experienced and come straight from a playing background, they will exhaust all their personal experiences in the first week of coaching, he said.

Former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar, who was also a panellist on the show, said that it's important for players to delink from their past when they take up the job of coaching.

"May be players who have played at a very elite level may not understand what players of average ability are going through. One thing that we are taught during our coaching education is that you delink from your past. Basically you can't coach the way you've played the game," he said.
