Go feel comfortable and feel good like this. When you find a way to play that the players feel good about. You have to stick with it. Before we played differently’

‘I don’t like the comparison method. The other team was a very physical team. You remember Gabi, Diego Ribas, Miranda, Godin, Costa, Juanfran, Felipe. That team was based on counter-attacking. Pressure, and there are different types of footballers who want a different way of playing.’
