Our ideas in May in contrast to what occurred in the finish there isn’t any widespread thread. At this level in our journey we should always not take unusual gamers, however gamers with nice prospects: Charles is one of them. In 2001, he confirmed essential issues in the Champions League. We want time, I know the followers and the press cannot wait, however let’s wait.

All the issues we requested for he acquired as a result of he’s like that. He grew and raised us, he’s a born chief. They have been thought of as a regularthese days being unusual is an excellent factor. It’s a particular relationship, we battle, we share, we battle. I am sanguine. He has lastly discovered a spot the place he can present who he actually is as a person and a trainer. Exchange of concepts in the market? We do not dwell a lot on names however on historical past: in the starting it wasn’t like that. He told us that many of the boys who arrived didn’t know him. We share concepts on what is required. ”

We have to create one thing that makes us blissful and it is this circle, in any other case we keep to inform ourselves the outdated issues and that is not one thing that makes me blissful”.
