City on Wilson:
EDS Skills Coach Kristian Wilson started out as his coaching career working with Simon Clifford, the man credited with introducing South American training techniques to children within the UK courtesy of his Brazilian Soccer Schools.
He was mentored by one of the game’s leading coaches, Roger Spry, who is now the technical director for the Austrian FA and has worked with Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger and Sir Bobby Robson.
The 32-year old’s first job in club football came at Sheffield Wednesday before Ron Reid and Scott Sellars took him across town to be part of the Academy coaching set up at Sheffield United.
Brian Kidd was assistant to Bryan Robson at Bramhall Lane at the time and quickly spotted the potential in Kristian, bringing him in to work at first-team level before Scott Sellars and Kidd brought him across to City’s Academy.
In June 2013, he was brought into the EDS coaching setting up by Patrick Vieira.
