Dean Keates Takes Inspiration From Many of His Former Managers

Dean Keates has discussed his belief that his managerial style has developed from the experiences he had as a player, taking parts of each manager's styles to form his own way of doing things.
Recently appointed Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the local press and discussed his belief that his managerial style has developed from the experiences he had as a player, taking parts of each manager's styles to form his own way of doing things.

Keates, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "I like to think when you play under different managers, you take the best bits from all of them. I was fortunate to play in some great teams and under some great managers.

"Chris Nicholl brought me through. He was very determined and disciplined. It was was the same with Ray Graydon who was, of course, very successful. Then I had the joys of playing under Richard Money. And I also enjoyed playing under Darren Ferguson down at Peterborough.

"I have played under some very good managers. I would like to think I have taken little bits and pieces from all of them. But you want to put your own scope on everything and do things your own way as well."
