You're always asked how do you think your title rivals are going to cope with the next game. What do you usually answer so you can distract their attention regarding the actual difficulty of the game?

Whatever I say in press conferences always backfires anyway, so I try to keep it simple. Name, Rank, Number! I would let my assistant handle them, but apparently he is mildly ******** and possibly schitzophrenic. So it may not be the advice you were after but whenever Im asked about a rival's match I reply with "I dont have anything to say about them".

I don't want my assistent to handle them, and I really think that saying something specific each time you are asked about your rivals, they will not be so focused anymore. It's also in your team, sometimes I tell the press that the games against some weak teams are going to be difficult, because otherwise they are going to become complacent. That's what you want, your rivals to get complacent.
