Milo Fernandez Araujo is one of those guys who accomplished everything in polo: he reached 10 goals in Argentina, won the Argentine Open 3 times playing for Indios Chapaleufu II, won the Queen’s Cup and so much more. But in the latest years he became known maybe as the ultimate coach. He took charge of La Dolfina at the 2013 Argentine Triple Crown and led the Cañuelas’ foursome to six Argentine Open titles, six Tortugas Open titles, three Hurlingham Open titles. Plus, the team became the first ever team to won the Triple Crown for three years (2013-2015) in a row.
Working for Monterosso at the English polo season, Milo Fernández Araujo spoke to Pololine TV and among other things he said:
“I never thought about being a coach, but when they (La Dolfina) invited me I saw it as a great opportunity to make history”.
“The role of a coach is important if you really take it as a coach role and not just the day of the game. There are a lot of things that you have to learn and study to make stronger a team, to keep them growing as a group too”.
“I think that what Eduardo (Heguy), Pepe (Heguy) and myself have in common is the same idea of polo that is just simple polo”.
“You have to say the right things in the right moments and no more than what you have to say”.
