Football has an important role to play in society. Players should have a sense of social responsibility, have a moral dimension to them which shows up in good conduct.
The Confederations Cup is interesting. It served Spain very well to take part and then go on to win the 2010 World Cup. We knew the stadiums, the atmosphere, the conditions and also the difficulties of a tournament which simulated the World Cup format.
Leadership must be likeable, affable, cordial, and above all emotional. The fashion of authoritarian leadership is gone. Football is about life. You can't be angry all day.
We are in a world that is quite extremist and extremism makes more noise. Normality does not sell.
