It mentioned that, in that then the dynamics in which it was incurso when it directed the Real Madrid resumía in that it was necessary to win constantly. "I have been a bit victim of me same. If it could, it would be one of the things that would not repeat. I won, I won and I won. I put me in a dynamics in which not winning seemed like the end of the world (…) I same, by my personality, promoted a bit this, that all is always to win, win or win. When it arrived to situations in which it was very difficult to do it, something that for other trainers was something acceptable, for me always considered insufficient, a failure ".
