"I think there are talented players here who need to continue working in order to improve. It's true we had some negative results, but they've become a team despite limitations and mistakes.

"I didn't expect this when I arrived, but you have to accept these things. Keep working, it's the only way to get better. We have worked and have not thrown away the last five months."
