But after eight months of their marriage, Bernadette died because of cancer. The cancer was diagnosed before they got married. 

But Bernadette couldn’t survive the battle with cancer. Still, after Bernadette's death, her husband kept loving her.

At their marriage ceremony, the family of Bernadette was also present.

Tony Doesn’t Look Back After The Referee’s Decision

Tony’s team Sunderland had an advantage against Swansea City as they were playing in their home ground. 

But the match ended with a 1-3 loss as Tony’s team failed to win. The match had some controversial moments, which were also very decisive ones. 

During the match, Tony’s team’s player Amad Diallo was tackled in the penalty box. 

He was left falling to the ground and should have given penalty. But the referee denied to give the penalty and continued the play. 

Also, Luke O’Nien was sent after he fouled the player from Swansea City. Both of those conflicts turned the game against Tony

But Tony said he didn’t look back at the foul or possible penalty. 

He knew that the red card was fair play, and he respected the referee's decision and said there was nothing he could do or change about the possible penalty.

Tony Doesn’t Want To Blame Referees

Tony has been in the field of football for a long time, and he has lived his journey in football from being a player to a coach. 

But in his journey, he has always respected the referees and respected their decisions regardless of whether they were fair or unfair. 

But as his team has been having a hard time winning the league matches because of some crucial decisions of the referees, he is in confusion about his thoughts. 

He knows that his team is doing everything, and with fewer mistakes, they have had a chance to win. 

But because of some unfair referee decision, they lose their morals. Not just in one or two matches but in every single match. 

So, he expressed that he had questioned his thought of not blaming things on the referee.         

Tony Went Through DISC Personality Profiling 

Tony revealed in an interview that he went through DISC personality profiling when he joined the Blackburn Rovers F.C.

He expressed that DISC profiling was essential for anyone on the team. 

In DISC profiling, D stands for Domination, I for Influential, S for Steady, and C for Conscientious. 

These four parameters also helped Tony while treating the players on his team. 

By making players go through the test, Tony could easily know about the players' personalities and determine who he could yell at and who he could make the team captain. 

He can know how to behave in front of each individual and how he can arrange them on their personality basis.
