Experience in Asia
An interesting aspect to his career and profile in general is his South African nationality, bringing him to Taiwan and other parts in Asia. A friend of Chancy Cooke looked to travel to China for his first experience as a coach. While he was eager to return back home, a job was landed in Taiwan and after some time playing football, a job was offered to coach. This led to Cooke’s ambition to become a full-time coach as well. Cooke’s time in Asia of seven years also had him study and look to achieve higher level coaching badges, with Cooke receiving his UEFA Pro A licensed Football Coach.

During his time coaching in China, Cooke had exciting matches and experiences with his teams, playing against FC Barcelona, Dortmund FC, and other top European Clubs. Cooke also sees his experience overall as a privilege to express his passion for the beautiful game to young players looking to become professionals as well.
