“I've been a fan of the team before I became an assistant coach, so I’ve seen from a fanatical point of view how people feel when they are watching the team. We as players, while playing, don’t notice these things but after my retirement, I’ve been a pundit, I’ve given my opinion about what should be done in the team."

The 40-year-old also stated that after his good career at club and country level for about 15 years, it is imperative for him to add that sort of consistency to the team and the time is now.
