It's a good question.
Ryan Lowe: Striker
Steve Schumacher: Midfielder
Kevin Nancekivell: Attacking midfielder
Rhys Wilmot: Goalkeeper
I'm not saying a striker can't coach defending and vice versa, but you'd think playing professionally at centre-back for 15 years - for example - would give you more tools to coach defensive principles than if you spent 15 years scoring goals.
It does seem to be a bit of a glaring omission.
Yes, it wouldn’t surprise me if at some point KN becomes surplus to requirements at first team level. This side definitely need a specialist defence coach.
