“Teamwork is an integral part of who I am and what I believe in.
“They [staff and players] can to relate to it. You know, they sort of talk to me about teamwork and they say ‘Ant you’re at the most elite level, life or death’, and I’m like listen, ‘you’re at the most elite level with what you do’. It’s not life or death, but it’s win or no win. Every time you go out on that pitch it is an arena.
