Upon the beginning of the gameHe pointed out that “they did it well, a 4-2-3-1 in attack and adjusted in defense with two points. Before the break I told Busi That he put three behind and let’s play with the sides up. Afterwards, the second part has been our domain ”.

Despite that goal, he pointed out that “the second half was very good, we deserved to score, if we had marked they would have had to change the system.

But we are going to one of the worst courses in the world ”.
About the lineup What did you put in the fray?He explained that “there are people with many minutes, Frenkie did not train on Thursday due to discomfort, Gerard has knee discomfort sometimes… We have high-level people to replace them. With Ousmane we have a plan already made. I have made the team designed to win. We have not succeededWe got an unfair defeat, it’s a shame ”.
About Dembélé he explained that “generates illusion because He is a great player, we have protected him because there is risk. He is a referential player, he is the Dembélé we want ”. And about Araujo, he pointed out that “he is an extraordinary defender, he wins duels, he goes well on his head… he lacks what we say: that he dares, understand the game every moment … we will help him improve, but he’s brutal, he’s a rock. If we want to play with the defensive line in the center of the field it is a privilege to have it ”.
