That was far from JM's strong point. He never once talked to his players during a game. Any in-game strategies came from Muller.
Tactician was the wrong word I guess I should say X's and O's guy, what I mean is Martin had the hockey knolwedge and Muller was the glue that made it work. You can have Martin scribbling away in his notebook behind those big ass ears as long as you have a person like Muller who knows how to talk to and engage with, motivate, etc... make people feel like human beings not pieces on a chess board or scribbles on a dry-erase board
