Richard Sneekes wants Hereford United to entertain

Hereford United

Hereford United's new coach Richard Sneekes is keen for the team to play an entertaining brand of football.

Sneekes, 42, is embarking on his first coaching role in the Football League.

"The players have got to have the desire to express themselves and entertain people more than anything," he told BBC Hereford & Worcester.

"We'll work from a solid back four where we don't give away a lot and then in the attacking third we've got to have flair."

Sneekes, 42, was appointed to the Edgar Street coaching staff following the departure of Dave Kevan who has taken up a post at Stoke City.

While this is his first coaching appointment in the Football League, Sneekes is confident he can get his message across to the players.

"I have got that experience of being a player for 18 years and then I have done my Level One and Two coaching badges," he said.

"I have got five years experience of coaching and have my own coaching school.

"From the short time I have been here the reaction from the players seems to be that they are very much enjoying themselves and that is my coaching style.

"I don't expect us to play like Barcelona but what we are going to do is play attractive football.

"The size of the pitch suits it and the boys are enjoying themselves so hopefully the fans will flock back and enjoy the brand of football that we are playing."
