Looks like my miserable national team is close to hire that dude. I know the factfile (1992 till relegating Silkeborg), but what's he's like?

Poor you .

One of the most boring coaches in the world. Capable of inducing mindnumbing sterility in any team while excelling mostly at set pieces. It's the standard cliché when any coach talked about meeting Silkeborg or Esbjerg when he was there: "We know that we will be facing a very organised side that is dangerous on set pieces and counterattacks". In the last years it seems he forgot about the counterattacks though.

Is good at giving youth a chance, but prefers running over playing.

Having said that - he has the record in Danish football in terms of winning promotions. He is good at getting results like that, but he is incapable of building something interesting... actually developing a team. In some ways, given what can reasonably be expected from Estonia, that might not be entirely awful in terms of results. You just won't be enjoying it very much I think.

NB: He is a friendly hillbilly outside of the field, but can go absolutely ballistic on the sideline... kicking, shouting, screaming and abusing the ref, linesmen and his own players. Managed to get ligaments damage while celebrating a goal last season . That's about as much colour as there is to him though.

APATHY: A word now fallen into disuse due to a lack of concern for it.

Don't worry, i never enjoyed Estonian football, just some national prideness kicks in every now and then.We have zero points and zero goals so far, basically all time lowest in FIFA ranking, so we do not want intresting, we want to save a little bit of our pride. He was appointed for teh next 7 games.
We have Pasi and Ratnikov, so going ballistic wouldn't be a problem.

He is no doubt going to bring you results if he's given the time to organise your team... It's not going to be pretty to watch though..
