"I said a couple of times here that Gio needed a little bit more time. He's having that time.”

"He's playing in the Europa League, he's coming from the bench normally in the Premier League. He played the last match well and he played tonight very well.”

"It's like Gio back to normality because he's a very good player and when his physical condition is good he can express all of his quality.”

"Tonight was the day when he showed that he's back and the intensity is there and the quality is there."
