David Healy has paid a warm tribute to his family and thanked them for their "unrelenting" support during his time as Linfield manager.
Having won his third league title for the Blues in the last four seasons, Healy is now turning his attention to the next campaign and, while there is no date yet for the 2020-21 Irish Premiership kick-off, Linfield know they will play in the preliminary round of the Champions League on August 8.
How Healy would love his team to match the performances in Europe last year when they brought over £1m into the club in Uefa prize money and were close to qualifying for the group stages of the Europa League.
Come what may, Northern Ireland's record goalscorer appreciates he will have the backing of his wife Emma and their three children, Taylor, Jude and Tallulah, plus his mum Irene and dad Clifford.
Healy spoke at the weekend about finding the desire and self-belief to bounce back from a crushing Irish Cup defeat to Queen's in January to lead his players to another title, albeit on a points-per-game (PPG) formula after the league was stopped in March, due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Linfield four points clear of Coleraine with seven fixtures left.
Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, Healy revealed how, with the flak flying from Linfield supporters after the final whistle at Queen's, a look from his dad was exactly what he needed.
"The support I get from my family is fantastic. It is unrelenting and I am thankful to have it. My wife Emma and kids go to not only all the home games but the majority of away games. My dad goes home and away as well, and my mum and dad are always there for me," stated the former Rangers ace.
"When I saw my dad after the loss to Queen's, I was feeling I had let people down but he looked at me and I knew he was there for me.
"It is important in a high-pressure job to have strong family backing and I feel fortunate in that regard.
"It is always a challenge at Linfield whether you are top of the league or chasing other teams, and I thought the 2019-2020 season was a huge challenge for everyone at the club.
"Due to our success in Europe we were playing catch-up from day one in terms of games and points and that was a real test.
"Of course, as I have said before, we would loved to have finished the season on the pitch but I believe we deserved to be crowned champions and am very proud of the players, staff and our club that we have delivered another league title to Windsor Park."
Healy added: "This season has probably been the strongest for years in the Irish League in terms of depth. It is not like decades ago when it was Linfield or Glentoran or, in more recent times, a battle between Linfield and Crusaders.
"For me the league is more competitive now, and going forward with the new money at Glentoran and Larne it will be even more so.
"Coleraine pushed us all the way in the league. They have had an incredible season which could get even better if they win the Irish Cup.
"With some of the ludicrous suggestions that were being put about in relation to the conclusion of the season Coleraine may have ended up not being in a European spot which would have been outrageous, not just for Coleraine but the league as a whole."
