The Villans will now be playing under new manager Remi Garde after the club sacked Tim Sherwood. Every manager has his own set of rules and regulations which are mandatory to be followed by the players. New boss Garde has set some rules, as well.

In an interview, Remi claimed that the players should strictly resort to English for conversing. The boss believes that if the team has to progress, there needs to be unity shown and it would begin once the players start understanding each other. Garde said that the players should use English to communicate, the squad is in England so it’s necessary to adapt. French can no longer be used as they’re not in France or playing for any French team.’

His words were,

“They will feel better, but my problem is not the French players, my problem is the team, the team results, so I won’t care more about the French players than I will with the English or Spanish or Africans.

“I don’t want anybody speaking French in the dressing room, for example, because it’s very important that we understand each other, but it’s also important that the English players speak slowly sometimes at the beginning. Everybody has to make efforts to be a team.’’

Remi is right in his approach towards binding the team together. For a team to succeed in games, there surely needs to be a sense of unity among the players and the manager’s rule of resorting to only English could be the very first step in helping to bring about harmony and understanding. Good job, Garde!
