Frank de Boer spoke with NOS in his homeland before boarding the flight to Prague, which has since landed: “Italy were World champions in 2006 and they decided to call a Coach straight from Holland, I certainly couldn’t go in like a bull in china shop, a Dutchman who comes in and wants to explain how things are done. For that reason, I’m moving step-by-step. It wasn’t easy to come in, I had to take the place of an Italian Coach. That means there’s a lot of pressure on you, everyone looks at you with their mouths open. There are real winners here, I don’t have to push them to do things like when I was at Ajax. A simple game of handball is seen as a pleasure here, whereas at Ajax they saw it as a nuisance.”
