He said, “Lamine Yamal is very young. He has a talent that only a chosen few have.

"But, when his performance level drops, the criticism is fierce. So we try to educate him, he’s a special footballer.

“You all assume Nico Williams and Lamine will play. If they don’t play, there may be a surprise for you.”
