"It's easy to see leaders who have had much success, it's often players who can relate to their players and get the best out of the players as well. Leading by example is only part of it, the most important part is getting along with the players on the team to help them fulfil their potential and continue to give them confidence and inspire them and a lot of it comes down to talk, it's about your professionalism, it's about believing in yourself and everyone around you"
