    I don't actually remember but I think I might have wanted Fabio Capello as I was a huge fan of his Scudetto winning Roma side with a front three of Totti, Batistuta and Montella.

    Hardly.
    Valencia under Cuper were fantastic to watch, can’t say the same about Simeone’s Madrid.

    I was just messing around...

    He was the one taking over. Apparently contract and everything was done.

    I think I was quite keen on Egil Olsen as a possibility

    Thankfully it wasn't all noise about it at the time in Poland and my English wasn't good enough to read your media.

    We are talking about 2002/3, LVG was manager of Barca, he even managed BM later on. How would you know he would have wasted 200m back in 2002? You judge a person base on what he did 15 years later.
