    "Can you tell me what’s the difference between being out of the Champions League in last 16 or quarter finals? In terms of the process, what’s the difference? I told from the mental point of view, but I also told we are not one of the top teams, not one of the favourites to win. I told you that with these words because I cannot tell you with different words while I am still in competition. I cannot be in competition, go there and say we have no chance to win the Champions League. I couldn’t tell you. It’s the same thing. You cannot expect me to say ‘this and that player, they have to do better’. You cannot expect me to say. I prefer to say that Matic and Lukaku are performing at a high level since day one until the last match, I cannot tell you the ones that are not performing. I cannot tell you before a Champions League match. Do you think I can go to the press conference and say before Sevilla we have no chance, if we are not out in the last 16 we will be out in the last eight, or in the last four? It’s obvious I cannot say many of the things."

    "We went out to a side that’s more successful than Manchester United in last seven years in Europe. We went out to a side that has a huge tradition in knockout competitions, a side in the Spanish cup final. We are out to a team that knocked out Atletico Madrid in two legs. We are knocked out to a team that is brilliant in their approach for many years, with their scouting system, the way they invest with every Euro they have. They’re a team with a great deal of experience at the highest level, playing every week against Real Madrid, Valencia, Atletico, Barcelona, the best players."
