I am ready to work, I am ready for this job and I am ready for this challenge.
In a utopia you want to win matches by several goals and by playing a wonderful brand of football. But that's utopia.
I am nothing without the players.
If my results are not good I will lose my job.
I don't want to portray myself as a hard man in management or anything like that.
But to me the bottom line is the more education you can give yourself, and the more preparation you can do, the less chance of failing.
I do appreciate that the most important thing as a manager is to get good results.
I just get the impression that everyone is willing me to succeed.
There are people who have been in this job for 20 years who will tell you that something new crops up every day.
The way I was brought up by my parents and guided through my football life by the influences of various managers means that in some ways I am black and white.
I am one of those people who quite enjoys responsibility.
I have lived my life that way and I expect the people who work for me to be the same way.
I think management is about just that - managing people via man-to-man skills.
I want them to be fully committed to the work place and fully committed to the people they work for.
There is a set of rules and a code of conduct that I believe that you should adhere to in life.
