I am most privileged and honored to write a testimonial about you.
In my over 40 years of involvement in the “Beautiful Game” of Football (Soccer), I have the distinct honor of knowing Mr. Roni Schneider. He is without question, one of the most knowledgeable and honorable people you will ever know. He has incredible knowledge of football, not only as a top level, former player, but more importantly, as a person of great character and integrity. He has been very successful as a professional coach, scout and educator of soccer and is always available to offer help and support to anyone in need of his vast knowledge. He is a “treasure trove” of information and guidance to all who seek his help!
If anyone takes the time to seek his counsel, you can be assured he will be there to offer his help and guidance! I can think of no other individual I would rather have to guide me in the various aspects of the game of soccer, whether as a coach, scout or educator!
With my deepest respect,
