From today's presser: “First of all I think it is really important that we speak about it, because I can't remember the last time when we spoke about this, the space for improvement within football, in professional football. A lot of times in life there must be a crisis, not maybe a virus, but a crisis for people to start talking, so I'm really happy that people now start talking about it. Yes, it's very competitive and that's positive and nobody wanted to change that. I am not really in it, it's not that I was involved. I was informed from a specific point. But I can say that all the people I know who are involved (in Project Big Picture) are concerned about football. Yes, about Liverpool as well, it's normal, but about football in general. That was their intention. And now other people can make of it what they want. If you want to understand the idea behind it I think it's possible. If you don't want, then you just knock it down. It's not a problem. We will play on football, before that, after that, but there are things we can improve and I really think that you always really need to improve them now, before you see the realy problems in the future, and that's what these people tried to do. When the process keeps on going and people are talking about it, then it's very, very positive."
