He talked about next Sunday’s Premier League meeting against Manchester United: “I hope we are in a good position in the match in order to get the three points.”
And he recalled the first round meeting, saying: “I think they appeared well in the first round match, the meeting was good from both teams, and we got opportunities that we did not take advantage of well and this is what made the difference with us.”
He continued: “We could score a goal at any time, and there was an opportunity in the last two minutes of the match, but they were successful to get a point.”
He added: “But in the end they played a good match in front of us and I hope to win the next match in order to make up for the last match.”
