Tony Sinclair, "Juru Kunci" di Balik Mulusnya Old Trafford

MANCHESTER, KOMPAS.com - Nama Tony Sinclair memang asing di telinga para penggemar Manchester United (MU). Akan tetapi, Sinclair justru menjadi sosok penting di belakang layar Setan Merah. Ya, Sinclair adalah Kepala Stadion Old Trafford.

Sinclair menjelaskan bagaimana pentingnya untuk menjaga kondisi Old Trafford tetap terawat setiap hari. Bagi Sinclair, rumput Old Trafford memiliki nilai sejarah yang luar biasa.

"Ini adalah bagian yang paling penting untuk tim. Kalau lapangan tidak dalam kondisi baik, maka akibatnya bisa menjadi besar. Para pemain ingin rumput yang subur dan basah sehingga mereka dapat bermain ke level tertinggi," jelas Sinclair.

"Saya merasa terhormat untuk melakukan pekerjaan ini. Pekerjaan ini dilakukan pada akhir pekan ketika Manchester United tidak bermain di kandang. Memotong rumput atau memeriksa lapangan dilakukan jika ada masalah. Rumput itu alami," lanjutnya.

Old Trafford merupakan salah satu stadion terbesar di Inggris dan juga terkenal di Eropa. Tak ayal, Sinclair merasa pekerjaannya ini harus dilakukan dengan profesional agar tetap menjaga kredibilitas Old Trafford.

"Old Trafford adalah stadion paling terkenal di dunia dan saya telah melihat beberapa momen yang benar-benar signifikan. Beberapa gol yang telah dihasilkan di lapangan ini dalam sepuluh tahun terakhir sangat luar biasa," pungkasnya.

FYI : Tony Sinclair ini sudah bekerja di Old Trafford sejak tahun 1990 dan mendapat promosi sebagai Ground Manager pada 1 Juli 2011. Hampir 25 tahun nih mengabdi mengurusi rumput Old Trafford dan pastinya dia bangga rumput yang ditanganinya pernah diinjak oleh banyak legenda United dan sejumlah pemain top dunia :)

UNITED AWARDED BEST PL GROUNDS TEAM

Manchester United have already registered a win on home soil ahead of Sunday's clash with Swansea City, without even kicking a ball.

That's because the club have been announced as the winners of the Premier League Grounds Team of the Season for 2016/17.

The prestigious award recognises the sterling work the groundstaff have done to keep the hallowed Old Trafford turf in perfect condition for every home game this term.

The decision was made by the Playing Surfaces Committee, of which the Institute of Groundsmanship, the Premier League, EFL and Sportsturf are members.

Tony Sinclair, head groundsman at United (pictured left), received the award from Simon Barker, chairman of the Playing Surface’s Committee, on behalf of the club at the annual Institute of Groundsmanship conference.

Ed Woodward, executive vice-chairman of Manchester United, said: “With 30 games of football and one Rugby League match at Old Trafford already this season, no other top flight club has had the same tight turnaround as our groundstaff.

“Late nights, early mornings and demanding shifts often go unnoticed but the dedication and commitment shown by the team is something that everybody at the club should be proud of. I know the hard work really is appreciated by the manager and the players.

“I congratulate head groundsman Tony Sinclair and his team for their dedicated work in this well-earned award.”
