“We’ve got the example of Edinson coming into our place and how much one player can influence a team. We’ve had Eric Cantona coming into the team with that experience.

“So Tom Brady is an example for every sportsman out there that it’s still possible at the age of 42 or 43, whatever he is now. But yeah, we do keep the dialoghue between ourselves.”
