“I wrote: You fought for us, now we are going to fight for you.
But I hope he will recover from this tournament. I don’t think it is the end of his career, I would say. I think, what I could understand, that he was in good condition and still in a good laughter, when Schmeichel was talking to him. And I hope he will recover and it is not taking so mentaly on him”.
