Ireland defender Dianne Caldwell has criticized her former coach Vera Pau, saying the group created it to the Women’s Planet Cup “in spite of”. Caldwell believes Pau failed to get the greatest out of the players due to inadequate preparation. Pau led Ireland to their very first big tournament of the year in Australia and New Zealand, exactly where they have been eliminated in the group stage. The Football Association of Ireland (FAI) performed a overview of the team’s overall performance and decided not to renew Pau’s contract.
According to Caldwell, the final results and performances the group accomplished have been accomplished in spite of Pow’s coaching. She pointed out that the preparations for the matches have been not at the level anticipated at the international level. Caldwell noted that physical preparation, opponent evaluation, match techniques, game play techniques, substitutions and game systems could have been much better. The players asked Pauvo to professionalize a variety of elements of his preparations.
Pauv, who has been replaced by interim coach Eileen Gleeson, claims FAI executives have undermined her position at the Planet Cup. She also noted that the FAI’s attitude towards her had changed just after allegations of “abusive and inappropriate” behavior through her time as manager of the Houston Dash in America’s leading flight NVSL have been published.
It remains to be observed how Ireland will fare beneath the new interim manager and how they will prepare for future competitions. The group will appear to find out from their experiences at the Planet Cup and continue to boost their overall performance on the international stage.
