Four Top Players Who Were Coached By Their Former Team Mates

As you may be aware, football is not only about players on the field; it also involves coaches, club owners, fitness trainers, and a variety of other individuals. No football player can play for ever, and some players continue to play after retiring.

While other players retire from the field, others go on to work as coaches and technical managers. Some footballers take time off to relax, while others become trainers and maybe coach their fellow players.

The player and coach, who were previously colleagues, have a deep connection, but consider having two persons like that in your football career.

1. Pep Guardiola - Xavi Hernandez 

Xavi is now a manager in Qatar, where he is now training Santi Cazorla, a former colleague, but he has also been in that position before.

He was signed up for Barcelona in 1991 and stayed there for 24 years, playing alongside Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique, who would eventually become his managers.

It is very important to have solid relationships with everyone since you never know what tomorrow will bring.

2. Zinedine Zidane-Sergio Ramos

Sergio Ramos understood much about the French legend to determine his next actions after playing with him. Sergio Ramos stated during Real Madrid's Champions League victory against Paris Saint-Germain earlier that year that he wouldn't be confused if coach Zinedine Zidane left.

3. Luis Enrique -Lionel Messi

Frank Rijkaard chose a kid from Barça B to participate in a friendly versus Porto in 2003/04. Leo Messi was his name. Luis Enrique, who was in his final season at FCB, was among the regular first-team gamers in the lineup that night. And the two came together in a play that nearly resulted in a goal.

4. Ryan Giggs -Wayne Rooney

This has been the most latest combo we've seen performing together. During his stay at Manchester United, Rooney said that he and Ryan Giggs were the most often put to Sir Alex Ferguson's legendary "hairdryer treatment."
