“I think they reacted really very well tonight”.
About yesterday’ hard words against his players he said it wasn’t an attack and spoke about Hazard: “I didn’t attack my players, I only said it was problematic. I think in the last three or four matches we have a problem. I think again we can find enthusiasm, it was very important”.
“I had fun with 70-75 minutes with Hazard, I think he was tired at the end. He played a fantastic match. I think the position is not a big problem. I think we played with another mind and motivation and determination. His qualities are more important than that position”.
Someone asked about his last final and he said: “The final for the play-off of Serie A. If you say I have never won anything at this level, you are right. I started with non professional teams and won”.
