the players on and off the pitch?
Absolutely. It’s provided all of the coaches with a chance to get to know the different personalities in the squad and they can get to know us as well. It’s allowing us to build up that trust and relationship that you need to help the club going forward.
Finally, how excited are you for the season to get started now and is the main focus on being ready for that first game?
Everyone is really looking forward to it, but I’ve been in the game long enough to know that the season is a marathon, it’s not just about the first game. It’s about where you finish the season. Over the 38 games it’s going to be a great ride and one I’m really looking forward to. It’s a fantastic opportunity to work at a great football club and follow arguably the best manager that has ever lived. It’s an inspiring challenge and one I’m relishing.
