“It was a huge team effort, full of intensity, hunger and ambition. We played with a lot of quality for what was in my opinion a very deserved win.
“But it’s not the time for celebrations, it’s not the time for praise, it’s not the time for thinking it’s more than three points.

“This is a completely different match, football with and without spectators. You simply can’t compare.
“It was amazing and exactly what we want, everybody who comes to the stadium to be happy and feel this energy from this team because this is what this team can always deliver.
“I strongly believe that as a supporter of any club you come to the stadium for energy. You don’t come only for fancy moves and goals and outstanding individual performances.
“They have the hunger, the ambition. Sometimes we struggle with decisions, sometimes we don’t reward ourselves, but this team is always on the edge in terms of work rate and what they give.
“This is very important and I think it makes the supporters happy, and for that they push us and it was a huge boost.”
