Weekender: Patrick O’Neale, football coach, 45

I live in the Cayman Islands, but I’m moving to Fulham – I’ve had to come here to further my career.

I have to spend a lot of time watching football. I watch it live, on TV at home, when I’m studying… everywhere, really. If it’s what you love, you’ve got to do it. It’s not a chore.

I like to kiteboard – that’s my free time. I’ve been doing it for about seven years. In the Caymans, we’ve always got our kiteboards set up for the beach. It’s beautiful. I enjoy the adrenaline and having time on my own; the time to think, or not think.

I’m very much a family person. I live with my wife and two beautiful children. My nine-year-old son kiteboards, too. Right now, my perfect weekend would be spent with my family at the beach, or by our pool at the house, just chilling and listening to music.

Today’s a Jimi Hendrix day – that’s what I’m listening to right now. I love the man, I love the guitar. When I’m cruising around, I like to plug myself in and get myself going. The last gig I went to was Faithless at a small, intimate venue in Paris, which was off the hook.

I like to wear one thing that stands out – today it’s the boots, by Oliver Sweeney – and the rest I’m not worried about. I’m in trainers or football boots all week, so I like to have on a nice pair of shoes the rest of the time.
