Duisenberg: no emotional comment Back  
At the press conference following the meeting of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank on 6 July, Wim Duisenberg gave some sound advice about media relations.

He was asked in the context of the launch of the euro, a ‘half-sporting, half-monetary question’. ‘You know that the Dutch have lost against the Italians in particular. What should one do in order not to lose such important matches in Europe?’

The ECB President said, ‘On this question, because I was there when the penalty kicks were taken, I must confess that I am still angry. And it is better not to comment in an emotional state.’
