So I was on the plane on the way back from the game, feeling a little bit disheartened, and I got a voice note from him just saying that the way my team played was incredible, "I loved watching it" and it was a really positive chat. It was one of those voice notes that deleted itself where it almost self-destructs. I wanted to get home and say: "Listen to this, everyone! Pep said I'm a good manager!
