“I’m a big believer of fan power – in the stadium. That’s completely different. [The coach incident] was a senseless thing. If somebody at Man City is concerned still, then it’s our fault. Not that we did it all together, we all didn’t thrown the bottle or whatever it was, but it was one of us. That’s why we are responsible. All of us have to make sure that something like this will never happen again.
It’s long ago and since then nothing has happened. I don’t think it was Man City specific. After the punishment we got, we haven’t had a similar situation – the positive outcome of something like this. Actually, we used to enjoy that [the coach welcome], when we come in, it’s impressive. It’s a nice part of football, but if you overstep the line then it’s not allowed that you do it anymore. That’s how it is.
I wish I could say it will never happen again but unfortunately I can’t. But what I can say is we will do everything that it will never happen again. Everybody agrees to feel this responsibility that it won’t happen again. That’s why I say – go in the stadium, nothing to do outside, have your food, go in, wait for the team, we will come, let’s make a pretty special game of it. In football, you never know what you get for it. But we know what we have to do for it. Let’s make sure that we show that.
