It does feel a bit silly to hype the guy like this when he hasn't had a single day on the job, but when put in the big frame, it is easily the best and most confidence-inspiring Liitto signing we've seen in many, many years - no matter which age or gender group we talk about.
Maybe if you're talking about his current market value, but if they'd come out with this signing two months ago when Ässät looked like they'd given up and wouldn't even make the playoffs, the reception wouldn't have been nearly as positive as it is now.
I'm still not sure how much credit for Ässät's current success can really be given to Kivi, but I've heard good things about him as a junior coach.
