game.

"We wanted to win it and

Ronaldo

helped us."

After 20 days, The Portuguese superstar got back to the field in the wake of testing positive for COVID-19, on Friday he tested negative and today he got back to today's match entering from the seats in the second half and scored two goals.

"We changed our system a little bit, we knew

Arthur

would have been more free to play a little behind. Ronaldo is improving and we were waiting for him.

"Both him and [Paulo]

Dybala

are improving, let’s see how everyone feels in the coming days.

"We always play with four defenders in the defensive phase. I had these players available, when everyone will be back we’ll see how we can play but the setting will be the same.

"We are improving, some players are coming back from injuries and we’ll have time to work on our ideas.

"Slowly, we’ll see in games those situations that we are preparing during training. We need to pick up the players between the lines, once we do it, we only need to think about attacking their area.

"I’m trying to simplify the defensive phase with two tight lines, we need to be more aggressive once we lose the ball, it’s less tiring to run five meters ahead rather than trackback for 70 meters."
