The “Danish Guardiola”, as he was nicknamed in his early days in Denmark, has recently recognized influences from other technicians with a very different style, like Diego Simeone, whose work he has described as “impressive” and “source of inspiration”.
“Spain can come until the end”, Apostille Hjulmand, whose selection has been one of the sensations of the tournament so far.
