"This is not the best situation to prepare for a game," added the Italian.
The Italian added, the transfer window period "hasn't been easy".
"This period has been really annoying," he joked. "To play a game every three days means you must have a press conference every three days.
"I must be honest, the transfer window period has been very difficult. To always be asked the same questions is a bit frustrating.
"I hope it has not been a distraction for the players. I ask my players to be focused on the game and to try and get three points."
