We’re excellent up entrance, we’ve got a number of choices; Joselu is superb within the field, he stands out very nicely, and Brahim, between the traces, can create extra options for us”, he indicated.

As well as, he assured that Vinicius and Rodrygo should “proceed with their development”. “They’re two gamers who’ve progressed very nicely in recent times, with quite a lot of continuity, and that is what they should do.

The referees would not have to enter the battle, the referee is a choose and to make selections It’s a must to be calm and calm, it’s higher {that a} referee doesn’t enter the protest. Final 12 months very younger referees entered who lack expertise, and in this kind of atmosphere they could have slightly extra errors. The target of the referees is to guard the footballer and the picture of soccer. We’ve got to work collectively, however the referee is the choose of this”, he concluded.
