“I’ve focused on the majors really for 20 years and for me it hasn’t been an overnight decision to say, ‘Well, my mind changes now after 20 years.’ Although I’m older, I will still give myself time to let this landscape evolve and settle down.

‘He was presented with an incredible opportunity, for sure, and I don’t have a problem with him doing that.’
