Paulo Bento: creator of new memories
Once remembered for his immature outburst in Euro 2000, the Portuguese national team coach is now revered by all ahead of Friday's clash with Israel.
There are many soccer players who one can immediately tell will eventually become coaches. Johan Cruyff is perhaps the most striking example, going from Netherlands maestro to Barcelona ideologue, but these players do not necessarily have to be as brilliant as the Dutch master. On the other hand, there are players who become coaches only after they mature, change, learn and practically go through a metamorphosis.
