Spain coach Lopetegui does not believe in individual prizes

San Sebastian (Spain), Jan 14 (IANS) Spain’s football team chief coach Julen Lopetegui has acknowledged that he does not believe in individual prizes that are given hype, such as the Ballon d’Or or the Golden Boot, since the important thing in the sport is, in his opinion, a shared objective.

Lopetegui on Friday said during his speech at an event in San Sebastian that a player wins matches but a team wins championships, reports Efe.

The important thing is, in his view, for every player to assume the role they are assigned and not forget that soccer is a group sport.
