The game lacked a bit of pace, we came in to it after a very intense game in the Champions League, but we’ve kept a clean sheet, got the three points and can now move on to think about Wednesday’s game”.
"We’ve got tremendous attacking potential and the statistics show that. We’ve got a difficult and important week with three games. We’ve got over the first hurdle and we’re going to Valencia on Wednesday to give everything to get the three points. We worked hard and have a big squad to go in to so many games in a row. From now on we have to win everything to achieve our goals".
