“Players like that (Roy Keane as a leader on the pitch), who can take matters into their own hands, are increasingly hard to find. Players tend to not think things through and that starts with the youngest kids, who everything is worked out for in advance, with a couple of coaches standing on the touchline barking orders at them. And in such a way that they are too scared to colour outside the lines, and so lose all sense of initiative. That is the kiss of death for football.”

– Ruud Gullit, from “How to watch football”
