“I wanted the players to see the big man and for me and him to share some minutes and have lunch together. I enjoyed it, he enjoyed it.

“I’m the type of person who does not see ghosts. I respect the past and I know he loves the club.

“We have good relations and I know this is his house.

“When he wants to come here, to the dressing room, to see the players train, he knows he is more than welcome.”
