“It’s easy to say it’s my fault, I still love my players, all my players. When we also spoke of Reguilon, it was my fault. When the players stay here, they know what it means. It’s difficult, I experienced it as a player. Playing here or elsewhere is different. (…) Here, we must demonstrate, with the very strong competition that there is also, the fault is not only the coach, there is also a part of the responsibility of the player ”, he blurted out.
