Wilmots: Only death, not criticism, can affect me
The Rode Duivels responded to reports of a dressing room rift by beating Ireland, and the coach insisted he was unmoved by negativity in the wake of their defeat to Italy
Marc Wilmots claims only death, not criticism, can affect him after guiding Belgium to an impressive 3-0 victory over Republic of Ireland on Saturday.
Following a 2-0 defeat to Italy in their Euro 2016 opener, the coach was at the centre of reports suggesting his players were unhappy with his management style.
The team responded in fine fashion with a comprehensive win in Bordeaux, and Wilmots unloaded his frustrations at how quickly positive opinions of his team reversed.
