We had started well enough, then with the episodes it changed and the result was this . There are many components that did not go, many things did not work if you lose 3-0. Now it is too easy to talk about it, coldly there will be different considerations. Put me aside? No, I started with enthusiasm, my work goes on , I’m available, I work in a big club, I think I can do better, I can get out of it together with the team. There are 3 games left, I will continue to do my job if they let me. ”
TO ADAPT – “With the ideas we had to adapt. I thought I had a different team, I adapted to things that have happened. With these we have to get out of this period, I have an excellent team, an excellent group. You have things in your head to do, but with certain types of players it becomes difficult, this is the group available and with these I work. I’m here at Juve, it was a duty to do more, I take all the responsibilities. The team was made up of great players, you can see that I couldn’t get something out. ”
DIFFICULTIES’ – “I asked them to come up with something, pride, something belly, pride must never be lacking, this shirt must be honored until the end. These performances cannot be there”.
MORE QUIET – “I have always been calm, the club has given me great freedom, it has always been close to me. We have only thought about the pitch, not about the things that happen outside, they are separate things. If we did not do well on the pitch, it is our fault. mine above all “.
I LEADER – “We trained well, everyone was there, then sometimes it happens that some do not reach 100% performance. When you lose 2 or 3 players who are not at their best, you get into trouble. Tonight it happened. Players who help the team. Coach? They have always been there, it’s something that fortunately wasn’t a problem. They all followed me, in good and bad times, from young to old, they gave me a lot of confidence “.
