Equipment improvements. “We played against a better team than Nastic, and we had a better friendly. We have more training sessions and some played sixty minutes.”

The attack puzzle. “I'm looking for the best possible attack. They can occupy different positions in attack and they can change, play right, up … There are many options and we have to take advantage of them.”

Physical state. “We are well physically. The players have done sixty minutes and this Saturday they will play 90 minutes already. They are a bit loaded. You have to give gas until next week and prepare physically and mentally.”

Young. “We know we have very good young players. The first thing is to train at a high level and then transfer him to the friendlies. If I have to highlight a young player, I highlight Konrad, I'm happy with him, but we also have Ricky, Pedri … We have a great future ahead of us. “

About Suárez: “If Suárez ends up staying, he will be one of the squad. I have spoken with him this morning, we don't know yet if he will go or stay.”

Coutinho: “Philippe is working very well, I think he has a lot of courage, he is training and playing well, he has great quality and we have to take that into account. Each player needs support and help from the coach.”
