“I must praise Stuart for keeping me on my toes. There has been good competition between me and Stuart.
“There is no bad blood, never media utterances. He is a gentleman and I treat him like a gentleman. He treats me like a gentleman. He understands competition. We are professionals.
“He is a qualified top coach who has coached national teams and in England. I need to acknowledge his education, his background and his CV.
