Madigage anchored by humility: iLIVE
I am deeply saddened by Thomas Madigage's passing. It feels like I have lost a personal friend or family member.
He was the wunderkind of our generation and, but for injuries, would have had an even bigger impact on the European stage.
He went on to become a successful assistant coach and spiritual guru. His image will forever be intertwined with the iconic ZCC hat.
Here is a man who could have elected to become a head coach. Yet, as testament to his humility, he chose to lead from behind.
Today's soccer professionals, and future ones, could look up to the likes of Madigage as a role model on how to conduct themselves on and off the field.
Rest in peace, Tommy, and thank you for having been my inspiration.
