I have been the manager of this team since 2014. In that time you guys have grown in maturity and have trained so hard, infact I am very proud of you all. On our day we can beat all the top teams and you proved that when you comfortably beat Real Madrid 3-0 in the group stages of the Champions League.
This club last won a trophy in 2008. It is no longer acceptable that with this group of outstanding players that we fall short and get knocked out. We are going to beat Man Utd and then win the final. We are going to do it firstly for our fans. The men and women and children, some who can't afford to go to matches, we are going to win for our staff, to Bill who cleans the boots and to Daniel Levy who's undying love for this club is so clear to see.
We beat Man Utd 2-0 earlier on this year. We know the strategy and tactics that we must enforce to win. Winning is everything and I want to see you in the finals and lifting trophies. That is the way forward now.
