He said: "I don't think we needed to be woken up. Losing was a big disappointment because we felt we had enough quality to win the game. Analysis of the game shows that - we had enough chances to win.
"On the other hand for Hull, with the few chances they had, they made 100 per cent of it. Credit to them and damage to us.
"We learnt from the game that in fact you need the Champions League focus in every single match. If we are guilty of something it's maybe not getting our focus to the right level to take our chances.
"I believe we should not make too much of the result. We lost the game but we have enough strength within the club and within the team to deal with that."
