Michael Clarke believes that Justin Langer’s taskmaster-like coaching style may rub some of the Australian players the wrong way.
Recently there were reports Langer’s intense coaching style with the players is not going very well.
Michael Clarke, a former Australia captain, indicated that some players may need some routing from intensive training sessions from time to time.
Ex australian captain said NSW Big Game Breakfast.:
“Justin Langer is tough too; his character is tough. He These people want to know that if you are going to succeed at the highest level, then every part of what we do challenges ourselves. We look to get better.
“What comes along is something most people don’t like because he is very much on the disciplined side of a head coach or as a player. For some players who don’t want to go for four hours of training and training, Or some people who don’t want to go to team meetings and go through every single player. No doubt, it’s not perfect for everyone. But that’s their style. “
Clarke said that if players are uncomfortable with something, they should be taken directly to Justin Langer or their captain Tim Paine.
“Even if people have beef with him or don’t feel comfortable, go and talk to Lang about it or try penny as a captain,” Clarke said.
Michael Clarke was unhappy that the player went behind Justin Langer’s back
A few days ago, The Sydney Morning Herald cited dressing room sources as how some Australian players found Justin Langer less acceptable, with him turning to assistant coach Andrew McDonald for advice and support.
Michael Clarke was unhappy that such things were out in the open and discussed in the media.
“It’s going behind closed doors and to a journalist, ‘the source said’, is very weak. I hope that’s not been the case, I hope it’s just a headline-making story and a player.” Lang hasn’t gone behind his back. I think it’s weak that you don’t name the player. I hope JL realizes who the player is and faces him, “Clarke said.
The Australian team has come under intense scrutiny of the series after the defeat against the Indian team.
The Australian team will be keen to return in the upcoming three-Test series against South Africa.
