Krautzun is a very experienced successful coach who is already 70 years old. I don't think he would be assigned coaching 7-8 year olds. He led the Philippines to the semifinals of the 1991 SEA games and actually would make a better coach than Coach Weiss having numerous successful stints at the club and national team level. I believe he is here as a consultant for the PFF, which is less time consuming and probably more appropriate for his age, although I wouldn't mind having him as head coach of the national team if he is still up to it.
The Germans have been helping us for a long time. We were not just as receptive to it before as we are now.

I think I saw coach Krautzun roaming around from one field to another making observations on the current skill level of the kids playing in the RIFA U10 tournament in Makati last Saturday. Im 90% sure that it was him. The only doubt that I have is that he was wearing shades at that time. I asked one of the local official who's with the coach and he said that that's the German coach. Yeah, a pretty broad answer for a very specific question. Anyway, according to the official. They were selecting players from that age group to be used as one of the benchmark on how young kids will react on different situations during a match. I also over heard him asking if he can select players from BSM (British school Manila) and one of the officials replied.. Nope, they are not Filipinos. They are foreigners.. Hahaha

yes, herr krautzun was there. and, he was selecting a few boys from the 8 year old class to join the pool of talent for the 2019 U17 match. I know because two of the younger boys in our group were selected. Sadly, my two boys are too old at 10 and 11. imagine, being considered too old already at 10 and 11!!!!!
by the way, lest our southern friends lather at the mouth, this selection was done only after he had traveled extensively throughout the southern hotbeds for several weeks and made far more selections down there...
