āAt times Iām not a coach, Iām a friend, a father sometimes. And sometimes Iām a coach and I need to say, āYouāre wrong ā OUT!ā
āWe have different levels here ā coach, board and players. I respect the level of the board and the board respect my level, the players respect me and I respect the players.

āBut we talk things through and thereās no more problem. Solved. Itās not difficult.ā
