"
… the past hours: "Right after the Union match, we sat together in the trainer's cabin to let it sink emotionally, and then we drove home.After a sleepless night with a lot of phone calls, we met and had a very early morning It was a very good, emotional conversation, Sandro helped pave the way, and after the shocks of the last few weeks, we were convinced that we could not cushion that and get out of the negative spiral. "

There have not been any discussions or phone calls, there is no candidate yet do not let us push too. "
