"There are two things in my life that I say it's a shame I forgot to do," he begins.
"One is in the past when I met Johan Cruyff on an aeroplane. I saw he was sitting there but I got shy and said "I'm not going to disturb him". So I didn't take any photos with him and a few years later he died.
"[The second] When I was working in TV. I was going to the hotel and I saw Jurgen Klopp coming. It was when he was at Borussia Dortmund. He was coming out and I also said I would not ask him or disturb him... I didn't take a picture with him, I hope one day I can take one with him!"
