Soccer is very, very hard. You must prepare every day. You must not waste a day. . . . Prepare. The game is only 90 minutes. It is nothing. It is over like this. You must work the whole week. Monday, one step. Tuesday, second step. Every single day, step by step. It is impossible for good training Monday, then cheat on Tuesday and Wednesday. Good training Thursday. Nothing Friday. Impossible to win the game Saturday. No. Every single day, I bring water to the tree. One day, I pick the fruit. | back to top
