A Giant Step For Oriental
I was just packing up my stuff when my phone beeped, and I quickly had a look to see who it was. It was José, the chairman - he wanted to discuss something. I quickly headed over to the board room and knocked on the door, before he let me in.
"Welcome Vitor, take a seat,"
he said to me, gesturing to a seat.
I sat down and and looked up. José was still standing and was looking out his window, hands tucked behind his back. "I have some very good news,"
he said. "You're going to love it."
"What is it?"
I quizzed, sitting patiently. José swirled around, looking at me with a big grin on his face. I was never sure I really liked the man. I think he was one of those managers that never really understood football.
"The club has decided that upon promotion from the National Championship,"
he started. "That the club should now run on a professional basis. All players and staff will be switched over to full time contracts tomorrow,"
I said. "This is fantastic news. Thank you Vitor, this is just the first step, let me tell you that!"
We both grinned and he said that was all, so I left the boardroom, satisfied José had done something right for once.
