“I was very affected by the passing of Gérard Houllier. Since my becoming a coach, he has always been kind to me. He was very protective of me. He gave me a lot of advice on approaching the trade. He told me to use the misfortune that befell my football career as an opportunity to pass on how precious the opportunity to play was to young players. Gérard had identified some of my personality traits. He told me that he had a management style similar to mine. He had a special relationship with certain players, like with Steven Gerrard. He tries to give a human touch to management; football is above all a human adventure."
