"I like the team," he said. "We have the details, we need to do it and come back but that's a decision not just by myself but the club as well. The club gives its opinion as well.
"But I don't think so. I like my players. I'm trying to help them to the best form and to do it. We have to try.
"This season we cannot rebuild the way we have the previous season - the results speak for themselves.
"We won, I don't know how many Premier Leagues in the last decade or 12 years, I think quite a lot I would say. And sometimes you have to accept it, you have to accept it when we are not enough.
"We have to look at ourselves and say 'Okay, what we need to do is try again and again'.
"But I see my team in all the games, except 15-20 minutes against Chelsea after the goal, in general I liked it. I liked the team, how we played.
"I'm sorry. I know football is scoring goals and not conceding too many and in those terms we are not good enough. But I like my team and how they play. Maybe I'm alone, but it is what it is."
