Mike Varney has described his relationship with Dr Michael Binder as a “very good one”.
The former New Zealand All Black rugby player has recently taken over from Binder, who is now a consultant in the medical field, as head of physiotherapy for the All Blacks.
The pair have developed a friendship and Varney told Financial Post he is “pretty close to Binder”.
Varney also says that Binder is the best coach he’s had in his career.
“I’ve had the best coaching staff I’ve had in my life,” Varney said.
I can’t believe what he’s saying about me.” “
To me, he’s been the best player, the best physiotherapist, the most patient, the biggest influence in my career.
I can’t believe what he’s saying about me.”
Varney and Binder worked together at the University of Auckland, before the All Backs moved to London in 2003.
Varney played for the English side for a decade and is now head of physio at Rugby New Zealand.
Varneys first coaching job was in 2009, but it wasn’t until 2011 that he became a consultant.
Varner has been with Rugby New York since 2011.
“There are a few people that I have spoken to, but the ones I’m close to, I just trust them and I think I’m a good person and they’ll help me,” he said.
Varne said that when he was a young player, he used to get a kick out of working with Binder.
“You know, if he was playing in England, and he was on the wing, and you saw his game, I’d say, ‘How are you?’,” he recalled.
He said that while he was happy to see Binder retire from rugby, he still supports the former All Black, despite his own career being over. “
If he was in England and you were training with him, and I was coaching with him or you were on the bench, I was like, ‘Ahh, what are you doing?’.” Varne, who has played nine times for the Backs, also said he’s a big supporter of Binder’s career.
He said that while he was happy to see Binder retire from rugby, he still supports the former All Black, despite his own career being over.
“It’s a good story.
He’s had a great career, he did great for us, but now, I still believe in him, because of his time in New Zealand,” Varne told Financial Posts.
It’s the whole game. “
We are all in this together, it’s not just us.
It’s the whole game.
So, I’m glad he’s retired, because I think it’s a great story.”
Varneys current job at Rugby World Cup 2018: Binder will be coaching the All New Zealand men’s side for the final time in 2020.
Varneck has already been asked to coach the men’s All Blacks team at next year’s tournament.
He will be joined by another coach, Peter O’Mahony, who will coach the All Blues team for the second time.
He says that while Binder has been successful, he has not been a part of the All-Star game.
Varndell says he still loves the game, and is proud of his coaching abilities.
“Yeah, it does feel good, I feel good.
Varner said that he is looking forward to working with his new colleagues. “
But I’ve been doing this for 20 years, so I’ve done it a few times and I’ve learned so much, and the guys I work with, they’ve been really great.”
Varner said that he is looking forward to working with his new colleagues.
“The way it’s going is great, so hopefully I can bring some good vibes and bring some new people into this and bring new things to the game,” he added.
“Maybe a new coach that’s going to be better at this.”
