“I put all my heart and soul into it. I am willing to fight and work for this club, these players and staff. I think it is possible, but then we all have to be like that.”

‘I will always be a fighter’

Despite all the setbacks, the 104-time Orange international does not think about giving up in his debut season as head coach. “I will never throw in the towel. I never have and I never will. I am a fighter and I always will be.”
