PBA: Coach Leo on Finals: 'I think it will be a good series against Ginebra'

It's either San Miguel Beer head coach Leo Austria is stressed over the PBA semifinals or he just has a really, really high level of confidence. Or maybe he just thinks in advance. Anyway, it seems like coach Leo is already ready for a Commissioner's Cup Finals against Brgy. Ginebra. After taking a 2-0 semis lead against Alaska Monday, Austria casually mentioned the Gin Kings as their Finals opponents. Take note, San Miguel could still end up losing to the Aces and Ginebra is still only up 1-0 against top seed Rain or Shine in the other series. But asked if he has the championship already in mind with the Beermen one win away from the Finals, Austria is keeping his focus on the present series against Alaska. Can't say the same against the Ginebra-Rain or Shine series. "No, we're not thinking of the championship, dahil kung para sa amin, darating 'yan eh," Austria. "But I think it will be a good series against Ginebra, dahil alam naman natin they are the hottest team in the league right now, eight consecutive wins ano. And makikita mo, nag-beef up sila, so with the addition of Jeff Chan, so probably they are preparing their team for our zone defense against them," he added. It's either San Miguel head coach Leo Austria is stressed over the PBA semifinals or he just has a really, really high level of confidence. Or maybe he just thinks in advance. Anyway, it's funny. That's coach Leo for you. Back to the Alaska series, Austria is still bracing for an Aces comeback. This current rivalry has seen crazier things happen in the recent past. "Well, makikita mo naman talaga, lahat naman sinasabi, sabi nila super team kami against Alaska without Abueva and Banchero. And they keep on fighting back, and in the first half, lagi kaming nalalamangan nila. So I have to admire, 'yung trabaho ng mga coaching staff dahil talagang scouted nila, and alam nila kung anong ginagawa namin, but maybe because of the superior talent we have, 'yun ang nagpe-prevail," Austria said. "But we should not be matuwa dito sa talent na pinapakita namin, dahil come championship game, so it's a different story. And we still have to work hard, especially on defense," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Deschamps joins Zagallo, Beckenbauer as champ player, coach

By Ronald Blum, Associated Press MOSCOW (AP) — Didier Deschamps walked into the interview room in the bowels of Luzhniki Stadium and prepared to answer questions for the first time as coach of a World Cup champion. A noise to his right caused him to turn, and his players rushed in. A bare-chested Benjamin Mendy jumped onto the table in front of Deschamps, and Florian Thauvin leaped up, too. Olivier Giroud and probably a dozen more giddy buddies sprayed their boss with bubbly, beer, cola and water. "This is third time I got changed, and I still smell just as bad," Deschamps said through a translator. He lifted the trophy as his nation's captain following the first title at Stade de France in 1998, and now he watched Hugo Lloris raise it in a Russian downpour following Sunday's 4-2 win over Croatia. The 49-year-old joined Brazil's Mario Zagallo (1958-62 as a player, 1970 as a manager) and West Germany's Franz Beckenbauer (1974, 1990) as the only men to play and coach a world champion. "Well, I don't really like to talk about myself, but I'm going to be forced to do so a little bit, of course," Deschamps said. "I had the immense pleasure and immense privilege to live through this as a player 20 years ago, and it was in France, so of course it will be marked in my memory forever. But what the players did today is just as beautiful, is just as strong." His players had to be brawny. They lifted Deschamps after the match and flung him into the air, over and over. "They've always been a little bit mad, my players," he said. Deschamps was a defensive midfielder for Nantes, Marseille, Bordeaux, Juventus, Chelsea and Valencia from 1985-2001, winning the Champions League with Juve in 1996 and the 2000 European Championship with France in addition to the World Cup. He coached Monaco, Juventus and Marseille before taking over France in 2012. His national team coaching career included a quarterfinal loss to eventual champion Germany at the 2014 World Cup and a 1-0 defeat to underdog Portugal in the Euro 2016 final. It seemed like film noir — he said there's an upcoming documentary coming out. "Two years ago, it was so, so painful to get past this opportunity of being European champions," Deschamps recalled. "But maybe if we had been European champions, then we would not have been world champions today. I did learn a lot myself through this final." Now the story arc includes happiness. He posed for photos on the field with wife Claude and Dylan, cradled one of the hardest trophies to win in sports. He hugged son Dylan as the 22-year-old waved a French tricolor. "When we were world champions, he was too young to understand," Deschamps said. "And today there are young people who are maybe 15, 16 years old, and they've lived through that. They had this happiness, to be able to live this event with us — of course maybe to be crazy and a little bit mad." Based on the losing experience of 2016, he revamped the team's routine ahead of the final. Player relaxation was at the forefront. And it worked. "They had to get that star, that shining star," Deschamps said, referring to the symbol that goes above a national team's crest to indicate a World Cup won. "I'm proud for them, and I'm also proud of myself — with all the humility, of course.".....»»
