Luis’ wife has hopefully sparked some proactive change in him …..
My wife has made observations like, “You were arguing with the referee and the defenders too much; you didn’t really seem up for it; you might as well have not been on the pitch.
I go away, think about it and realise she was right. She said people must go away and think that is what I am like off the pitch, even though I’m usually relaxed and easy-going.
Having a wife that closely watches the game is good. She knows me better than anyone else and I want her observations to help me play better and be a happier person. She’s my biggest critic, she always comes to watch me. She asks what I’m doing, why am I arguing with the referee. ‘All you’ve done today is turn up to shout at people, why don’t you concentrate on playing football?’
If I don’t, they [Sofia & daughter, Delfina] won’t come and watch me anymore. These are things my wife has picked up on and so has everyone else, so it has made me think.”
