"I think we defended very, very well. We were very aggressive in counter-pressing, we defended very high up the pitch. We did not allow any counter chances for one of the most dangerous counter-attacking teams in Europe.
"We did not allow any half-chances, any chances. I was absolutely happy with the work rate and intensity."

"We will talk about what we did good and what we can do better to be ready for Tuesday,"
"This is it in sports. There is no team that never loses, no player or no single sports guy. It is about bouncing back, showing mentality and belief again.
"We missed out on a trophy and are very sad about it. But we have another competition with two finals against Leicester and Aston Villa [in the Premier League], then another final [in the Champions League].
"We have enough to do. We cannot regret too long."
