says that they can use the fact that their match against
was postponed because now they can face

“The preparation for the game was good, and we have still two days for the next game. I hope we are ready.”
And about the postponement that happened a few hours before the match he said:
“I think everyone is disappointed we didn’t play the game – I think also Manchester City were disappointed.
“Unfortunately they had (a) problem, the Premier League decided to postpone the game, we have followed the decision and we move forward to the next game.
“We didn’t receive yet the further information but I think soon we are going to have this.
“The announcement was four hours (before kick-off), we were at the hotel, but I think it doesn’t matter… Also early, it doesn’t change the situation. The situation was quite clear and so we move forward.”
And about the possible decisions that Premier League officials can make about the outbreak he said:
“I think it is a difficult moment, not for the club, not for football – it is a difficult moment for the country. So I think we have to take care of this, we have to follow the protocols.
“I think not all the people are following the protocol. Not all the people wear the masks, not all the people take social distance. And so I think first of all we have to follow this. After that – I am not in the right position to decide if we have to play or not.”
