“Hello my brothers, how are you? Boy, I’m tired. I was in Nantes taking care of things, things, things, things, things, things. And it never stops, it never stops, it never stops. Anyway guys, I’m up in this plane that feels like its falling to pieces, and I’m going to Cardiff. Craze… we start tomorrow training in the afternoon guys, in my new team… Let’s see what happens.
