,,My family’s good health. That’s most important of all. Professionally that we got this far in the Champions League. And that we are in the top of the league table in Holland.’’

Expectations for 2003?
,,I hope we continue this way and keep growing as a team. I am hoping for a very good year.’’

With whom would you like to drink champagne?
