“Kim Ewé is more or less an institution in Danish Football. He is involved with the national team, the education of new coaches, and has been very helpful to other teams. His results speak for itself, and he has had success everywhere he has coached. He will be missed on the Danish sidelines, but I think it is very impressive that he gets a shot at coaching abroad. I wish him much success in Italy.”
-Thomas Pederson, HC, Aarhus Tigers (Denmark)
“It has been my pleasure to work with and get to know Kim Ewé. I’ve know him personally for the last two years and as a team we’ve learned so much from him, mainly due to his passion for the game and his professional attitude. He carried us from “street” football to “organized” football, and for an Italian football team it’s a great boost. He helped me grow personally as a coach and a manager, and taught me to coach with passion and patience. His competence in any aspect of the game is amazing, whether it’s offense, defense, or special teams. I’ve truly learned a lot of things from Coach Ewé, and on top of that he’s led us to unbelievable results on the field. For these reasons, I strongly recommend adding Kim Ewé to your staff – he’s a great coach, a great professional, and overall a great man.”
-Franco Bernardi, Defensive Coordinator, Castelfranco Cavaliers (Italy)
“Coach Kim Ewé is a true lover of the game of football. This characteristic is strongly reflected in his professional approach to the head coach position. He’s able to turn any team into a winner from the very first season. He’s a team builder with great attention to every detail of the team. He knows very well how to drive a team to success in Europe. Despite the fact that European teams can only dedicate two days to practice each week, he maximizes the efficiency of those practices so his team is always prepared to play. Coach Ewé is constantly refining his craft and he’s a true professional.”
-Marco Cecchin, Team Manager, Castelfranco Cavaliers (Italy)
“Kim Ewé is the best coach I’ve ever worked with. He knows how to build teams and utilize the strength of his players to their maximum abilities. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kim for over a decade on both national teams and club levels, and he is one of the most thorough coaches you will ever meet. He understands all aspects of the game, prepares tirelessly for each practice, and always does whatever it takes to put his team in a position to win.
Kim’s way of coaching also reflects on him as a person, outside of football. He is always there to offer coaching advice if you need it and he has become a close friend as a result. I highly recommend Kim if you’re searching for a great coach and a great person.”
-Troels Vestergaard, HC, Søllerød Gold Diggers (Denmark)
