"If I'd have played Fernando, Brede would have played for the first time on right side [of central defence] and I couldn't take that risk.
"I had to keep it as it was before with Philippe and Hangeland, but we have to start somewhere with Fernando because he is a very good player.
"Hopefully we will get the time and resources to try that and give him his chance."
