Disappointed with the result?
Yeah, it was well deserved for all the effort that the guys put in. But I have to say I just walked in the dressing room and told everybody there’s no room for disappointment or doubt.
I’m very happy with the performance, we had good intensity and were very structured, we did not allow nay dangerous counter-attacks.
So we were very well organised, we were brave, we had courage w played as a team, good input from the bench, a very good attitude from the bench that did not come on. A very good spirit.
I think the supporters could have helped in all the half-chances for the one decisive moment.
Hard work but we never lost intensity and I’m very happy that this was our starting point, and very excited about where we’ll end up.

What needs to change?
Not much, first of all I see an exciting mix between experienced personalities and talented guys. I see a very demanding league that brings out physically everything in every player. Players totally open to our ideas, beliefs, tactical approach.
Where we want to accelerate, the game, close spaces, how we want to defend, attack.
This made me feel very, very good honestly because this is what you wish for. This is the level now and we can start working on the details.
We can prepare for Burnley and that’s what we’ll do.
Too far away to challenge for the title?
The title, ooh, far away, we have to be realistic at the same time. When you sign for Chelsea as manager it’s absolutely right you sign for the expectation to fight for title,s PL, CL and cups.
It’s absolutely clear, but at the same time we have to be realistic that there are a lot of teams and points between us and fourth. So maybe it’s the best time now to step up in the middle of the season.Don’t lose the focus in looking too far.
