We can cope with the problems with the quality in the offensive phase, but not in the defensive phase.“So I have to organise better the defensive phase and the players have to understand that. I think my opinion in this moment, two teams, Liverpool and Manchester City, are better than us.“We have to improve step by step. My target is to become the best team in England in one year, 18 months. That’s the target.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
