“I think Patrick has done a fantastic job, with how the team plays. They have lots of attacking players so we need to be ready for that.

“After the international break both teams have had a couple of days to prepare. We need to attack as well as we did [against Salzburg] and then the little things that we didn’t do so well in the games we have to try to get better at.”

“It was important for us to use the players that didn’t play against Salzburg to gather some more information,” he added.

“Then it was the international break with just a few players left with us, so it’s been a case of a little bit of individual work, getting to know the staff around the place and then spending a bit more time together as a group.

“It has been a bit of a tricky time but then again, nothing you can do about it and now we can’t wait to get the games underway again.”
