The Spaniard remains positive that he has a good enough team to pull Watford off the bottom of the Premier League table and said he would be reacting sensibly to the defeat instead of taking a more old school approach of punishing his squad.
"This time is completely different to 20, 10 or 30 years ago," he said.
"When you lose and you have to run maybe for two hours to the forest. It's different now, we need to be sensible because the players need to play again and I need to be ready, so it's not about running more, it's about being clever and to be smart and to be positive. This is the idea."
