I get the impression that Sanchez came to their team with an outlook to change things, he doesn't sound like he had a lot of belief in their approach and wasn't prepared to build on that. I think that a good coach would not try to force them work differently since the start of cooperation but would take things slowly and more carefully AND strive to create a good working relationship with her father.
There's a lot of sound reasoning to what you've shared above,and it also makes it more believable when other posters claim that Piotr found one of his old buddies to work with Caroline
