“So it’s a second to last opportunity, the last one coming this morning. So I’m glad we got it.

“I was often on my way to the airport, and often on my way back while driving I was called back because my test was bad.

“And we finally did it, I arrived yesterday for dinner, at 8.15pm. I arrived on time to the team, giving a chance to participate in the final training session, so I took meetings today.

“It’s not a good thing to watch the semi-final in the office on the screen, but as a coach you want to be on the sidelines. The effort was very good.

“I have a tactical signal to see the entire stadium and a TV signal on the big screen to watch games from a distance. And I was with my assistant on board.

“We did the same with the cup, but not like I used to talk to them, it was more or less every 10 or 15 minutes.

“It’s amazing. Teaching is also about hearing, online, so I also need input from people on the sidelines. It’s impossible to coach just from the office.”
