An empty stadium. A football.Evening.
Puel, sitting in the centre-circle, is trying to remove his football boot.
Puel: Nothing to be won.
Aulas: You may have a point.
Puel: Not lately.
Aulas: Might I inquire how His Gaffership spent the last ninety minutes?
Puel: On a bench.
Aulas: Did they beat you?
Puel: Certainly they beat us. Four-nil.
Aulas: The same mediocre lot as usual?
Aulas: When I think of all those seasons in the Champions League. We were respectable then.
Puel resumes battle with his football boot. Seeing this, Aulas removes his own boot and gives it to Puel.
Puel: It was only a matter of time.
