Is it easy mak­ing the switch from player to coach? Ryan Fet­ton via Twit­ter

HE AN­SWERS Kevin Phillips Derby County coach

“As a player you’re self­ish and think just about your­self. You will come in and go home and then turn up for matches. But as a coach, the big thing I’ve found is you’ve got to think about ev­ery­one. The or­gan­i­sa­tion side of it is in­cred­i­ble – as a player ev­ery­thing is or­gan­ised, but you don’t see the hours that go into it. I used to train from 10am un­til 12pm. Now it is an 8am start and some days you may not leave un­til 5pm.”
