The new players that come in they have to adjust to the way we want to play.
"It's a wonderful game for the club and supporters, as a first game in the Premier League, but we have to make sure it's a good day for the team as well".

"Because I don't think last season the players he had were the type of players that he wanted so you have to rebuild the team around his project and the way he wants to play - it's a tough job for him". Hopefully the work we did last season - when being champions was not possible - we can see it this season because the work is done.
