Roberto Martinez is the deserved Coach of the Year 2018. Most of all because he installed the high performance mentality within the Red Devils team and the results he realized with this team. Certainly not because je didn’t select Radja Nainggolan, although the non-selection was an act of great leadership, full of learning opportunities for the player to live a professional football player life as a Red Devil. Martinez showed him the way. It was an act full of valuing the values often lacking in the behavior of a diva. The consequences are clear. Roma and Inter have chosen the same path. But it is never too late for Radja, who is a great football player. Changing his mindset to follow the professional lifestyle way is the right direction.
