Steve McClaren reveals his secret tactical guru: Al Pacino
Oh, and Bono too
The now ex-FC Twente manager Steve McClaren ensured his team wrapped up the Dutch title successfully with a superb, moving motivational team-talk. But rather than amuse his players with his comedy accent, he decided to let Al Pacino do the talking instead.
Showing off his rather nifty video editing skills, the former England coach showed Pacino’s famous American football team-talk from the film Any Given Sunday with clips of Twente’s efforts so far in the season ahead of their final match against NAC Breda.
It seemed to do the trick. And McClaren was able to pack up his we’re all in this together spirit and his knock-off copy of Windows Movie Maker and head off to Wolfsburg.
