Adi Hütter coaching style

Interestingly, Adi Hütter was all about possession during his playing days, and preferred seeing nice football back to front. However, as a coach, he eventually started to prefer a much more dynamic, and direct style. He explained how he no longer likes “to play the ball around with horizontal passes in our own half.”

Aside from a direct play style, good communication with his players is everything for Hütter. Hütter can speak multiple languages and during his time at Frankfurt, he shared how he was jealous of former Rennes man and Switzerland international Gelson Fernandes’s language skills. He stated:

I would have liked to have been Gelson Fernandes, I’m even a little bit jealous. I’m impressed by how many languages he speaks; he can talk to anyone. I think that’s brilliant.”
