    Once you made it personal, you had no chance, because I could wait

    Hi,

    What does mean I could wait?

    Does it means that I would go slowly with you? I will take pity on you or what?

    Thanks

    What is the context? It doesn't mean anything to me other than that the person was not in a hurry to do whatever it is they are talking about.

    Soon after Benítez arrived, I attended a Liverpool game and he and his wife invited me in for a drink. So far, so good. But our relationship frayed. The mistake he made was to turn our rivalry personal. Once you made it personal, you had no chance, because I could wait. I had success on my side. Benítez was striving for trophies while also taking me on. That was unwise.


    here is the more context you wanted.
