Its interesting that he’s fairly candid about everything. It’s often seemed that there’s still a lot of secrecy about transfers/ transfer plans here for both the clubs and players, and as such whenever anyone discusses anything (Lukaku, Leipzig re Lookman etc. there’s a general fume).
There seems to be a lot less emotion in transfers (generally, there’ll always be some exceptions for rivalries) away from here.
I suppose for them it is a simple business negotiation. Pressure, of course, but not like we feel as fans sat at home clicking refresh every 30 seconds and wondering why nothing is happening!
It seems we have a proper professional team in charge now. Every now and then I have to step back and think is this really the same club as ended the season with a reviled manager and a disfunctional DoF. Night and day.
