London, Mar 6, (UNI) Looking for a football coach? Go to your mom as they make better football coaches than dads for being naturals at motivating children.
According to a study, mothers can get the best out of young footballers through years of being unpaid teachers, nurses, counsellors and disciplinarians.
''I agree that many of the qualities I have as a mother are totally relevant to coaching youngsters,'' The Daily Mirror quoted rising football star Theo Walcott's mother Lynn as saying.
World Cup hero Sir Geoff Hurst also believes mothers bring out the best in young players. ''Mums know how to engage children, how to speak their language and how to motivate them,'' he said.
