Riveiro, who got his first coaching qualification at the age of 19, has vowed to change what local football fans think of him.
“I don’t know exactly the meaning of those words or sentences that they said about me or what they are trying to express, but if their doubts are about my profession they can be calm,” he said.
“I am a person who is really committed to my job, the club that I have signed up for, by dedicating all of my time in order to achieve all the objectives that they have proposed to me. They can be calm about that.
“Like we said, football will speak for us and what we are going to achieve will speak for us. We are here to entertain the people and if the people get entertained by saying that we are plumbers, it’s fine. No problem at all,” Riveiro said.
“I’m not very active in social media or in googling my name, I don’t do that at all. I just focus on what I will try to do next.”
