“I can understand that you want more response from Chelsea.
“It must be clear that I am not the guy to clear these questions. I am not the guy, I am the coach. I am not a part of the board. I was not involved in these decisions, all the thoughts and all the work that was put in or not put ing, whatever. I do not know the details of all this. I can understand that you need more and want more answers to get a bigger picture.
“I am clearly not the guy, I am here to coach the team.”
