We have a coach and a club that believes in us and the disappointment definitely shows it.

But it’s about us and how we assimilate it because he has done it, he has nothing to prove. He has done it on the biggest stage with the biggest teams, so he will give us everything he has to improve us and now it is up to us as players not to have excuses.

We all have to take responsibility for that as players. It is not something that worries me, I will keep working and I am very excited to be working with this manager.
I am sure it can improve me and that is something exciting. When you’ve done what I’ve done in the game so far and still feel like there’s more to come, it’s definitely exciting, so I’m looking forward to it. ”
