I don’t know why. True, I haven’t managed a club before. But that isn’t necessarily how things work around here.
I mean, when I worked as a ‘consultant’ for some organisations around the Black Sea — forgive m if I don’t name them; they like me to be discreet — I built up a good network. And when it comes to getting the job you want, that can help to open doors.
Not that, now that I’m in post, I can expect any further favours.
But in any case, they are, as you can see from my profile, lucky to have me.
Especially since some of that profile is actually true, which really sets me apart from some of my peers.
For example, it’s true that I have a Continental A licence. Well, I have a certificate saying that, which comes to the same thing, don’t you think?
I’m relieved that I’ve come to a club that already has a decent goalkeeping and fitness coaches. And I’m very confident that I’ll prove an asset in my intended role, as possession coach.
I don’t know where that ‘catenaccio’ bit has come from though. I don’t even speak Italian: I don’t know what it means.
