“I’m really flexible, I like to have a flexible midfield to play with a 6 or play with a 10 so he’s one of the players I can change.

“For him, it doesn’t matter so I’m very happy because he also gives a lot of stability for the team.


“I enjoy working with Joe and the other players. I can see their energy, I can see their willingness to learn new things.

“So far they’re giving me so much energy to work with them, especially Joe, his performances have been excellent in the past games and I’m really pleased for him.

“On Saturday, he was man-of-the-match but he’s part of the team and the team, again today, played very well.”
