I don't want to portray myself as a hard man in management or anything like that.

I do appreciate that the most important thing as a manager is to get good results.

There are people who have been in this job for 20 years who will tell you that something new crops up every day.

In a utopia you want to win matches by several goals and by playing a wonderful brand of football. But that's utopia.

I just get the impression that everyone is willing me to succeed.

If my results are not good I will lose my job.

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.

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 am nothing without the players.
