Future top coaches

Suppose that based on some criteria you can predict who will be a good coach in the future. These criteria would be something like 1. Handling media 2. Having trained under big coaches 3. Being able to handle the pressure.

The first one I'd like to mention is Gert Verheyen. He's one of the few football players that has something interesting to say to the media, without falling back to the clichés.

As for point 2.: he has trained under Aad De Mos, Georges Leekens, Hugo Broos, Erik Gerets, Trond Sollied,...

Point three seems a certainty too, as he has been through a lot in his professional career.

Like this you can also expect a lot from Timmy Simons, who is good with the media and has trained under Trond Sollied and Guus Hiddink, two coaches with a very specific style.

Who do you see as a good coach in this perspective?

[EDIT]: the idea for this came from the fact that coaches often say who their most influential trainers were. Like this you have a Pavic-Goethals-Happel or Norway style of coaching.

Help me, Jeebus!!!
