Help choose the sporting leader of October from McCaw, O Connell, Owens and Klopp

November 1, 2015

Richie McCawLeaders We Deserve subscribers are invited to submit candidates for Leader of the Month. The following attracted attention in recent news stories. This post reveals my four sporting leaders of October. Unsurprisingly, three were from the Rugby World Cup

Richie McCaw

Increasingly recognized as  rugby’s leader of his generation before and after New Zealand’s World Cup win and maybe as the greatest of all time [GOAT]. Photo is of Richie in 2008 from wikipedia.

Paul O Connell

Not for his heroic injury-wrecked Rugby World Cup, but for his long term impact as captain on the Irish Rugby team.

Juergen Klopp

New Liverpool manager Klopp identified for his charisma even before the victory against Chelsea [Saturday 31st October]

Nigel Owens

Takes top spot refereeing the final of Rugby’s World Cup. Rated best in the World.  Humorists in Wales said they know Wales would get to the finals. Owens is  already a celebrity off the field for his courageous stance on gay rights.
