"Saturday's game helped everyone understand who we are and we are not going to shy away from that," said the ex-Chelsea manager.
"There is no such thing as an easy match, we'll see the result and then can really say if the win over Inter has given us a boost.
"The team has grown so much since the start of the campaign and believes in its own potential. We must always give 110 per cent to bring home a result, we're not like those other giants who can perhaps pick up points with the minimum effort.
"We must continue to work hard with perseverance."
