Thanks to God Peter and Marat are having an almost perfect player-coach relashionship now...even if it took several months to really understand each other.
Marat said several times that they have a Teacher - Student relationship...And that's the best way...He doesn't want his coach to be his buddy...He doesn't need to go out and have a couple of beers with him.
I think it's important that a coach cares about his player, that there's an involvement because they spend a lot of time together and they depend of each other but it can't be a too close relationship - there is an invisible line that they must find.
It's hard to be a coach nowadays.
