Holst takes questions from the press
The day had come, the 25th of June 2019, Holst
was about to step into a room full of flashes and question marks. He'd never been so fearful of words, but he knew he must remain composed, to show he's a force to be reckoned with.
This press conference was available on most TV's across the country, some even internationally. People wanted to know the story of the exiled man.
: Hi guys, I'm really happy to be here today, I'll take a few questions, take a few photos and then I'll be off if that's okay? Nothing too hard it is only my first day after all.
The journalists laugh between themselves, Holst grows confident.
: Congratulations Holst, it must have been a bit of a hectic few months for you, exiled a few months ago and now a pro manager, how are you feeling right now?
: I'm ecstatic, I've put the work in at Bradford to get my qualifications and I'm glad that LASK took me on as they did. It's a huge opportunity to create a future here and I don't intend to waste it.
: What about your ambitions moving forward?
: I'm happy as I am! It'd be naive not to stop and enjoy the moment I'm currently in rather than moving on to the next thing, so I'm enjoying every moment right now.
: Obviously you have a great affinity with Bradford City, any chance that's a reasonable goal for you down the line?
: As I said, I want to live in the now, LASK is my job, and I'm going to prove to the world what I'm capable of with this team.
: How do you feel the about the team you've inherited? Are you happy with it?
: Every manager has changes they want to make to a side, I'm the same, but not too many, I like to keep the core. Can we have 1 more question?
: How do you feel the LASK fans reacted when they realised their club had just hired a taxi driver as manager?
: Wow, I don't think I need to provide a response to that. That'll be all.
And with that, Holst promptly rose from his chair and left, in the corner of his eye he could see that 5th journalist getting quite a stern telling off from the LASK press officer, good job too.
As he made his way through the maze of corridors hidden from the media, Holst's phone buzzed. A text...
Dad: I know we don't talk any more Son, but I want you to know I'm proud of you.
