A chance to list examples of people failing upwards.
Frank De Boer.
85 days at Inter Milan, leaving them in 12th place in Serie A.
77 days at Crystal Palace. Four league matches, four defeats, no goals. “The worst manager in the history of the Premier League”, said Jose Mourinho.
Frank then stumbled into the hot seat at reigning MLS Champions Atlanta United, and promptly made them ex-champions.
Frank, undeterred, failed upwards into the job of Netherlands Senior Men’s National Team manager.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. You can hardly fail any worse than Frank continually does, anyway.
