The reason I became a manager was to have full control over training. If you are a coach, you are bound by what the manager wants you to coach. The other reason is that I just like the company of football people.

People think I’ve got a problem with the press. Actually I have no problem with the press, but just like in football there are a handful who cause problems because they’re disrespectful, they’re lazy, and above all – and this is what really gets to me – they haven’t worked hard to get there.
I’m afraid that this is me getting on my high horse now but we have yob television, yob newspapers, and funny enough whereas it was my mum and dad, school, police, church who used to set the standards, now it’s tabloids and yob television who set the standards by which people live.
