“This word is very important, ‘commitment’ is very important. When you engage, you understand certain decisions better. You are more patient and keep doing what you need to do. You focus on your task, day in and day out.

“I want all the players to be equally involved,” he added. “It would be absurd to say [you] this is the reality because players have their own expectations.

“A lot of them work very, very hard during the week. And then the weekend comes and the coach decides to leave with other players.

“I think he deserves all respect because every time I’ve been with Ole, and we’ve faced each other many times, he’s a wonderful person. A respectful man. And I really admire him,” said Nuno.
