Former Manchester City captain heaps praise on National Coaches Conference

Andy Morrison says it's a great place to learn

Former Manchester City captain Andy Morrison says the FAW National Coaches Conference is the perfect place to learn to become a better coach.

The Scotsman, who is currently manager of Connah's Quay Nomads and a UEFA Pro Licence candidate admits he's very excited about the conference at the end of May.


The former Man City, Huddersfield and Blackpool defender said: "It's a great opportunity to learn.

"I've been six times but I always come away with a greater understanding of the game than I started with.

"It's also a great chance to see old faces and it's always thoroughly enjoyable. It's at the end of the season so it's the perfect time to catch-up.

"The most important thing for me is, every time I've been, I've left with a greater education."

At last year's conference, Morrison spoke in detail with his fellow Pro Licence student Thierry Henry and watched sessions by Mikel Arteta, who is now the assistant manager to Pep Guardiola at his former club.

He said: "You've got top coaches and top people in the game taking sessions and giving lectures.

"It's three days of the people at the very top of the game passing on their experiences.

"It's certainly been beneficial for me over the years."
