He finally broke his duck in Italian football with a 1-0 victory at the Stadio Tardini.
â€śI am satisfied. The first win came against a difficult side and despite the dangers of the final minutes. I am happy for the players, the fans, the football and the result,â€ť smiled the Spaniard.
â€śMy football is about playing well and scoring goals. Those are my objectives. Without doubt we couldâ€™ve handled the final stages better, as the team wanted so much to win that it became terrified of dropping the lead. It had already happened against Siena on Thursday.
â€śCompared to that game, we are passing the ball around quicker. I remember in previous matches we also had good possession, but we want to try something different that gives us a better chance of scoring.
â€śPablo Osvaldo and Fabio Borini were excellent, as they have the quality to play this type of football.
â€śFrancesco Totti is a totally different player to the others. He did his best today in terms of hard work and attitude.
â€śHe has all the freedom to play within our front line, as he can hold on to the ball in more dangerous situations, but itâ€™s not easy when your opponents wonâ€™t let you pass it round.â€ť
