‘And this is something we know about, and we know when you look at recruiting, but, more importantly, when you work with players every day on the pitch, make sure Do that when we set well we don’t give many chances.

‘And of course we want to accept lower goals, as all teams do at the moment. The teams are achieving a lot of goals in the Premier League, and we are in a similar position at the moment. But it will always be something that we attack as a game.

‘And we need to make sure those lessons are learned very quickly, and the players will be made very aware of it. I am not sure that whenever you say that you are satisfied with anything in this game, in this game of football, you are always looking for improvement.
‘So there is not going to be a line where I draw and go,’ There you are, we are happy with it ‘in terms of preparation, because it will be the beginning of the fall.
‘In terms of how I communicate with the players, I have nothing to do but need to work and improve daily, so every training session, every meeting of ours, to get better. And they are the rules of football.
‘The obvious fact is that where you usually have one month of weather and we haven’t done that. Nor is the other team, and maybe there is a factor in the results we are seeing, but we have to at least worry with that.
‘Nothing is offered to you in the Premier League or the Champions League, and all we have to do is work to build relationships around the pitch, fit the players, which is obviously an issue for us, keep Calm and put the kettle on. ‘
