“Dzeko andBorja Mayoral
have different characteristics, and we all know how important Edin is for this team, but as far as I am concerned the general approach of the team will not change,” said the coach in his press conference.
“We must realise that Serie A is a different league to most others. Pedro Rodriguez can adapt quickly, as he has so much experience, but it’s not the same situation for a young player like Mayoral, Carles Perez or Gonzalo Villar. We must give them time to grow.”
He also talked about their 5-0 win in Europa League on Thursday
“I want my team to show courage and play the ball even when being pressed. Even if there is a mistake, I am satisfied with the courage of my players to try playing it out from the back.
“It’s not just the defence that has changed, but the way the whole team works to help defend. If we don’t press well further up the field, it becomes very difficult for the defenders.
“We’re on the right track, but nowhere near finished yet and we must continue with this team spirit tomorrow.”
