If it begins in a nasty method like for us at first of the season, since then, we’ve needed to take care of accidents in defensive positions, we’ve a midfield disaster then attackers aren’t there and it is not simple for the time being.
“However for us and for me particularly, it is a job to do. There are hundreds of thousands of how to win a soccer recreation however you solely must wonderful one. I am nonetheless assured we will discover that and that’s what we’re working for.
“However we do not examine ourselves with the perfect model as a result of it is utterly totally different and a distinct time. We’re right here to provide it a correct go… Within the second, the one factor we’ve to win is the following recreation.
“That is all we’ve to be fascinated by and we can not remedy issues like the opposite groups are doing. We’ve got to do it our method… and we are going to win soccer video games once more, I am positive.”
