    Red face I don't mind Emanuel

    What does "I don't mind Emanuel." mean in this following text?
    I can think of two possibilities. Which is right? Or something eles?
    1. I have no interest in Emanuel.
    2. I don't dislike Emanuel.
    For your information this Johnny guy is a figure skater and so is Emnauel.

    Q: Dear Johnny, just out of curiosity, what do you think about Emanuel Sandhu? Do you blame his inconsistency on his lack of training, like the commentators, or on his mental preparation for the sport, or on his troubled family history.
    A: I don't mind Emanuel. I think he's one of the most talented skaters in the world in any discipline. I don't really care too much about his inconsistency. If he figures it out, he'll win everything. :) I don't know anything about family issues.

    Re: I don't mind Emanuel

    Yes; Johnny seems to infer hostility towards Emanuel on the questioner's part, and responds accordingly.
