Owl head coach Markku Kanerva: “I relax at home”


Markku “Rive” Kanerva, the head coach of the Finnish national football team Huuhkajä, jogs and plays golf when he has time, but surprisingly, he also does homework: Markku especially likes vacuuming.

– There is a rumble on the vacuum cleaner arm while listening to fun stuff. Wiping the dust doesn’t excite as much, he says.

It is important for Marku to share homework evenly.

– I usually take care of shopping trips with us, and I like to cook. Especially when my wife first cunningly praises my skills. Yes, I make pretty sweet vegetable puree soup.

“I’m a locker room animal”

After a long day, Mark’s jacket is often pretty empty, but small bellows help.

– As a holidaymaker, I’m miserable. In my current job, the longest free time has been 12 days in the tube. Because of my work, the family’s holiday trips and cottages have been missed. Planning a trip to Bora Bora is our common joke and at the same time a dream.

The coach, who once studied as a classroom teacher, believes the background has been useful in his current role.

– I got tools at least for managing groups and giving feedback. But in the locker room I’m sure for the rest of my life, football brings excitement and content to life.

Things to take care of

The activity watch is a good friend of Markku. It and the smart ring largely control the activities of his day. There are quite a lot of friends anyway.

– Happiness is a close circle of friends to whom you can share your concerns. The friendships that have survived the school days are wealth and resource.

In the world of football, Markku has learned to approach things the way they demand. His habit is to analyze situations and accept realities.

– The most important thing is to focus on what can be affected. Things will be sorted out sooner or later. Still, nothing happens by itself, but you have to act in such a way that things are done.
