Sometimes things are just not as fun as you think they will be. Just ask Gustavo Matosas, who resigned as Costa Rica men’s national team coach less than a year into the job because it was too “boring.” On Wednesday, Matosas brought up the difference between managing a club team and a national team as one of the reasons why he chose to step down just days before Costa Rica’s friendly match against Uruguay on Friday. “I realized that in the national side I feel unproductive even though I kill myself watching videos,” he said.
