It was totally new for me.
I had won titles in my career as a player. But I had never experienced the feeling I got when winning the CONCACAF Champions League as a manager for the first time.
When you are a player, you enjoy winning in a different way. Firstly, because you play a major role on the pitch.
You work on developing your performance to show that you are good enough to be there on such a big stage. Basically, you play football.
But when you win as a coach, all of that adrenaline that has been building up on the touchline just gets released.
I was 21, and just starting my career as a professional player with Bella Vista in Uruguay, when I realised that my place was on the bench as a coach.
