on how new signings are progressing…
“We are in pre-season so we don’t disturb our preparations. “
“The result is not important and today we won 3-0 but Fiorentina created chances. “
“I am happy with the match. In the first half we didn’t control the game like we wanted, with possession and build-up. “
“We created chances but we also conceded a lot. In the second half maybe we found better with 4-3-3 the structure to control the match.”
” This is the way to convince everyone we need to work harder than last year to achieve our targets.
on whether he prefers a back three or back four…
“Last year we worked with both systems and changed it a lot because the quality of players is better with one system or the other.”
“We have very offensive full-backs and sometimes we need to protect them. We tried to play with four and three. “
” Now I want to be working with both systems because sometimes we can achieve a very big performance with Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac both playing. Three centre backs is the best for that. “
“Playing Nacho in the centre of a back four is not the best position for him, and Sead Kolasinac I want to improve his performance to be strong defensively in a back four because we are going to use this system.”
