I’ve always liked this feeling of the unknown.
This question of: can I dominate all the difficulties that come, not only with a new competition, but also a new country?
To win in Italy, in England, in Spain – it requires the flexibility to adapt. To sometimes go against your own ideas and choose the right way to succeed, depending on the reality of the club and of the competition. Even socially, you have to understand the needs, the aims and the motivations of everyone.
I am lucky to be rich with this kind of experience. That’s why now, I don’t close the door to a new country, to a new competition.
There is just one requirement from my side. One thing that I need from a job.
I have to play to win.
I am quite pathological in this. Somebody could give me a wonderful, incredible, amazing 10-year contract and tell me: “The objective of the team is to stay in the top half of the table. So, if you finish seventh, eighth or ninth, it’s perfect.” That is not for me.
I need a project where the feeling is I play to win. I compete to win. After that, if I win or I don’t win, then that’s my problem, and that of the players and the club. But I need a project with that pressure.
This is my nature.
