Ok guys. We could not celebrate together when
we were Champions because we were at home. So… Maybe it’s the easiest speech I can
do and at the same time it’s the most difficult one Big congratulations because we are the Champions.
We are the best in England. So for all my staff, the people here, the laundry, everybody
I would like you to feel part of that. Always you speak about the managers and the players
but it’s impossible to achieve what we have achieved without your unbelievable effort.
Of course we are absolutely here to help those guys and you know how outstanding they were.
It’s not just one game, you can lose one game, two games but to be nine or ten months, every
single day, that is the most outstanding thing an athlete can show in their lives and with
the people who surround them. You create something unique in the locker room, the spirit and
your friendships. It’s impossible to achieve what you have achieved if you are not good
human beings, if you are not good people, if you don’t accept one another. In the end
what we have done is to be better than nineteen teams. Nothing else. It’s a lot, but nothing
else. But what you have done, every day, the staff take care of the people here, Stacey,
Lee all the people here, so that’s why you deserve all my respect. What has happened,
personally and hopefully for you as well, will always be in my heart until the last
day of my life, I’m pretty sure of that. What I lived, what I felt this season, it’s something
amazing. That’s why now, when I finish, right now we want everybody down on the pitch to
take a picture with everyone, not just with the players but with all the staff. But before
you leave I would like to give ourselves the best and a huge applause that we deserve.
