Cooper loves having random conversations with his son Alex. He says that he frequently tries to inform his son regarding the negative side of social media. 

Copper feels like Alex can be affected by the negative comments from fans and haters. Especially when the team’s performance is below acceptable levels. 

Copper’s wife and children all support him very dearly without conditions. They even proudly wear the jerseys of Cooper’s teams despite the results. 

Cooper says that he can relate to his children because even his father was once a soccer star. 

His father, Keith Cooper, was a Premier League referee. Fans would often raw him into controversies because of his decisions. Yet Steve and the rest of the family always stood firmly by his side.

However, Fans have backed Cooper and Marinakis is facing a lot of criticism for it. 

Nuno, previously with Wolves and Spurs, recently led Al-Ittihad to the Saudi Pro League title but was sacked in November.
