In the summer of 2022, I completed this portrait of Ivica Osim and bring it to an end with this great floater frame. I have given it the subtitle “Spielen Sie!”. This roots in a training session at the old Gruabn Stadium in the early days of his coaching, which I seem to remember. I think there were a few players fooling around, and he formally exhorted them to focus and get to work. To me, it was unusual for a soccer coach to communicate so formally because when you saw these young fellows, you had more of the feeling of seeing a father interacting with his sons. Great memories!
