Bobby Clark on Iain Munro …
“Iain was a very smart fullback and a very good player. One thing that we share is that we both went to the same phys ed college. He has a teaching degree from Jordanhill and that’s what separates him from many other professional soccer players, the fact that he’s a teacher. He’s a very good teacher and a fantastic addition to our clinic coaching staff.”
“Iain has the top coaching license in Europe. He’s a Euro Pro License coach, which is the very top level you can get to coach in the professional level. Iain is a great teacher who can coach the very top professionals and he also has the ability to coach the youngest kids. At the moment, he spends a lot of his time with 6 to 12 year-olds in the pre-academy squads. He’s a special person and we’re very happy to have him as a guest clinician.”
