Great Job At Southern Cup guys, now let's get back to work!
" I always believed that when I am playing bad, when I am not winning, you don't have to find excuses outside or reasons outside. You have to look at yourself in the mirror and say, thats my fault. (it) is not a question of coach...not a question of physiotherapist or physical trainer. Is a question of myself "
