4 QUESTIONS WITH DIANE GOLD

Diane Gold

Coach - GU9 Black

 
1) What is your favorite game attended any why?
On my bucket list is to attend an EPL game, their fan's passion for the game is amazing. But now that my daughters are grown and done playing competitive soccer, my favorite game attended is any one in which I could watch them play. It seems just like a moment ago when they were 4 or 5 yrs old and starting to play the game. Time goes by so quick!
 
2) What do you enjoy about coaching soccer?
I enjoy the long term relationships made while coaching soccer. I get to watch young players who I coached as 8, 9 or 10 grow up and becoming amazing athletes for their high school and club teams.
 
3) Who is your favorite player and what do you like about that player?
Being a female coach and a coach of girls, I have to pick a female soccer player as my favorite. It has to be Mia Hamm for her talent as well as her impact in advancing women's soccer in the USA. It is sad to me that many young players today don't know who she is and I feel fortunate to have been able to watch her play.
 
4) What suggestion would you make to our San Diego United players?
I would tell the SDU players what I tell all my players. To work hard at training and games and to be a good teammate. You will gain the respect of your coach and the trust of your teammates.
