London: Two coaches are taking diametrically opposite approaches to their World Cup campaigns in regards to their players having sex.
Bosnia and Herzegovina coach Safet Susic has decided he does not want his players wasting their energy romping with their WAGs in Brazil. Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has announced that he would allow his players to have sex during the World Cup, but with the disclaimer that the sex be 'normal'.
Is seems Susic believes in what Rocky Balboa's trainer, Mickey Goldmill, said in Rocky I, "Women Weaken Legs".
Susic wants "military discipline" from his squad during their first ever World Cup and is leaving nothing to chance in a bid to keep his squad fresh.
"There will be no sex in Brazil. They will have to get by as they can. We are not going to Brazil for a holiday," said Susic.
Urging his players to concentrate on the job in hand, Susic said, "There will be no sex in Brazil. They can find another solution, they can even m********* if they want. I am not interested what the other coaches do, this is not a holiday trip, we are there to play football at the World Cup."
It seems Susic believes in what Rocky Balboa's trainer, Mickey Goldmill, said in Rocky I, "Women Weaken Legs".
Manchester City star Edin Dzeko, Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and Roma playmaker Miralem Pjanic are among the players in the team, which will get their campaign underway on June 15 against Argentina in Rio de Janeiro.
Bosnia will also face Nigeria and Iran in the group they hope to qualify from.
Scolari, meanwhile, has announced that he would allow his players to have 'normal' sex during the World Cup, but forbidding anything "acrobatic".
"Sex before matches? If it is normal, yes," Scolari said in a press conference in Portugal recently. "If done 'normally'. (But) there are certain ways to do it that are acrobatic and that will tire you."
Brazil will face Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon in their group stage.
Recently, it was revealed that England captain Steven Gerrard's model wife Alex is planning to defy her husband and join him in Brazil.
Gerrard had recently warned against an army of WAGs traveling to Brazil, fearing a repeat of the 2006 World Cup where they were seen as a distraction.
However his wife, 31, revealed she would risk his disapproval by flying out to cheer him on.
"If it gets to the late stages I'll definitely go," she said.
England manager Roy Hodgson has said the WAGs can come to Brazil, but has decided they will not be part of the official FA party.
