"I remember even I stayed back, and I was talking to Calum Chambers because there was some tactical stuff that for me was more important to solve than going to celebrate a goal, And then the press comes out and says like, oh the dressing room is divided…As bad as people think it was, Alexis always wanted what is best for the club and us players wish him all the best."
