Do I still have to desire to throw myself into a crazy challenge? I dont know.

It is a job that needs total commitment. I need to take a bit of a space which I have never done.

What will influence me? What is inside me. How much I miss being a coach. How I manage to live without this adrenaline which is part of being a coach and influencing a football match. To experience a beautiful game of football and share it with others after a the game the emotions.

It is not a devil – it is an angel.Football has allowed me to meet amazing people, who have offered their hand and who have helped me do what I have done.
