“My decisions about starting him or not starting, selecting or not select, will be based on a perspective of a future. I cannot hide that. It will also be based on a perspective of a future.
We have a present and in football we have to focus on the present, in this case the game tomorrow, but it’s a club where you have to think about the future.
“These important decisions obviously they have an influence on my decisions as a head coach, but the important thing is that Christian staying or leaving, he’s that type of guy who easily I could understand.
“A proper guy, loves the club, loves his colleagues, amazing colleague in the dressing room. So it doesn’t matter what, he’s one of us until the last day.”
