I fight with him when he eats chips or fries. He knows I don’t like it. Even my youngest children, when they eat chocolate, look at me fearfully. We must be strong. To be honest, he’s got potential, he’s a strong, fast boy, he dribbles well, but he’s still nothing. I tell him each time: it takes a lot of dedication, work. “
“Sometimes when he’s at home, I advise him to do the treadmill and then take a cold water bath to recover, he continued. But he complains. I understand he is only 10 years old. I will not put any pressure on him, I will not do anything to make him a footballer. Of course, I would like him to become a footballer, but he will decide his own future. “
