WHAT’S YOUR STATE OF MIND ENTERING THIS SEASON?
The new adventure beings. We are not 100 percent ready, but I think most of our competitors do, based on the results of the last friendlies. We have quality, but there is still work to build the chemistry.
WHAT ARE THE GOALS FOR LEONARDO JARDIM?
These are the goals of the club, they do not change. Aim to finish how, show a beautiful style in Europe, and if the opportunities arises, win a cup.
LEONARDO JARDIM IS ENTERING HIS FIFTH SEASON IN CHARGE.
Our relationship is known. This is the man of the situation. He has my confidence. We work hand in hand. We win together, we lose together.
THOUGHTS ON THE DEFEAT TO PARIS SG IN THE CHAMPIONS TROPHY?
I don’t give too much importance to this match. Congrats to Paris. But there was a lack of players on both sides. If we look at the standard team with World Cup participants, our players make up almost half of the team. That means the quality is there in our group.
