Coaches who wear suits on match days and tracksuits on training days are more likely to get the best out of their teams, according to a new research at the University of Portsmouth, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Dr. Richard Thelwell said, "We have found that the clothing that coaches wear can have a direct effect on the players' perceptions of the coach's ability."
Players look to their coach to provide technical skills, to motivate and lead them. A coach in a suit suggests strategic prowess that is ideal for a match.
In the study, coaches wearing a suit were perceived as being more strategically competent than those wearing sporting attire. However, when wearing sporting attire, they were perceived to be more technically competent than those in a suit.
