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.”

    We have a good and promising coach on FDB. Just give him enough time to rebuild our squad and playing system. Trust. That is all he need right now.

      Yep, I with you and Franky on that…. I was so much against him at the beginning but he´s showing that he´s a great motivator, a hard ass boss and a great teacher of football as well, with many players improving ALOT(all the things Mancini wasn’t in fact).
