Sean O'Driscoll is on a learning mission with his Saddlers

Sport | Published:

Walsall head coach Sean O'Driscoll says discovering how to get the best out of players is what excites him most about being a manager.

The 58-year-old boss has enjoyed an impressive start since his appointment at the Banks's with five wins, one draw and one defeat from his opening seven games.

But as well as getting positive results, O'Driscoll revealed it is helping develop players that brings him the most satisfaction.

"Whoever comes in and sits at the top of a football club has a big responsibility to the players," he said. "What you do affects people – you think it doesn't, but it does. I have got to ask 'what do you they think of me as a manager and what we are trying to do?'

"With managers it's usually my way or the high way – if you are going to get the sack you might as well do it the way you want to do it.

"The important thing though is to look at the players, get to know them and think how to get the best out of them."

Meanwhile, Marc Czuczman has returned to the Saddlers as first-team physio. The 37-year-old was assistant to Jon Whitney between 2006 and 2008.
