As always Mauricio comes across as an extremely intelligent yet versatile and honest human being. The type you would willingly invite round to your house for dinner.

Maybe we have the new Bill Nick or SAF on our payroll. He certainly says things that are common sense as well as intuitive.
Really happy to have him as our manager.

You can't pin him down on anything!
'I don't have an opinion...'
'Why should I have to choose..'
So there are no clues to how he consistently gets players to play at their max, especially the younger ones.

Comes across as a really thoughtful guy in translated interviews, in particular. s
Agree about the translation. When interviewed in English he is a bit predictable - but thats because he is communicating in a second language.

Although he has done well to get to a workman level of English, in interviews you just don't see the subtly and depth of his thinking.

I think he is an inspiration - not just at a football level but on all levels. He is a fantastic role model. A guy you can learn from. Football, life......

Yeah I’ve tried to adapt some of his non footballing principles to my workplace. His comments on discipline but adaptability are really transferable. The idea that you need to come up with a plan customised for your staff and not push them in square holes
