|Alfredo di Stefano and Faas Wilkes
|Least favorite opponent
|Camp Nou in Barcelona
|Ajax. Is just a little more dynamic than other shirts. Barcelona’s is sometimes hard to make out in the distance, especially when a player walks close to the stands.
|Ajax – Liverpool, de famous fog match (December 7th 1966)
|Sport apart from soccer
|Spain, the mountains in winter and the sun in summer
|I eat everything. I love fish, but I also love marrowfat peas with lard or stew. I am very easy
|Spanish red wine
|Used to be Toon Hermans, André van Duin at a later stage. I find people who have the ability to give others a happy night special.
|I read all kinds of things. Especially detective novels. Robert Ludlum, Frederick Forsyth, relaxing reading.
|Nat King Cole. Beatles. Quiet music. Laurens van Rooijen, Richard Clayderman.
|Vincent van Gogh and all naïve art
|Honest. Someone who does something good for the collective. I am not bound to a party, therefore I will not mention names.
|Classical. I think Zegna is beautiful. So is Hugo Boss.
|I have been driving Mercedes for years.
|Fear of failure
|I do not have it.
|You do not know the final standing, but you must never be influenced by that.
|Does not exist. You are in control of that.
|All that is beautiful around me. That can be a painting, but my grandchildren as well.
|Of my children who, despite the extreme circumstances in which they grew up, as as they are. We are a tight family.
|Necessary to succeed. People who take the initiative have the most succes.
|People who use an institute in a cunning fashion without adding to it.
|I ask for nothing, I get something. I like everything people put their time and attention to.
|Lovely! I have been at all events. Including the Dutch national soccer team.
|To favour or to neglect
|Neither. As a trainer, you are dealing with soccer players. Not with your son. I have protected every player. You cannot bring it onto someone to debut in a full Nou Camp when they are not yet up to it. Especially your son. You would not let them hiss at your son, would you?
|Men and women will always be equals, but they will also be different.
|Helping out in the house
|Of course. But not because I should.
|The most important person in my life. Without her, I would have made so many mistakes… Not necessarily by your own stupidity, but because you are confronted by so many interests. She keeps me on course.
