Daryl was highly thought of at Chelsea and did an excellent job in the four and half years that we worked together. He is an excellent coach who is able to develop individual skill and technique in young players. At the same time, his personality enables him to interact with the players and inspire them to reach their full potential. I have kept close contact with Daryl and his career path. He did a very good job in his time at Tottenham Hotspurs FC as an academy coach. In addition, he has shown great confidence and commitment to his career by moving outside of the United Kingdom and coaching at a senior level in Azerbaijan.
