And about whether facing Brighton will be more difficult, he explained: “Certainly, because they are really a complete team, the way they play under the leadership of Roberto and the coaching staff is wonderful, it is a pleasure to watch them play.”

And he stressed: “He presented a different idea for the league and this is a different challenge for the coaches as well. This is what you want. We want to be the best league in the world and we need the best coaches and the best players. What he did with the team, after all the foundations that Graham Potter left in the club, is incredible. It’s a very difficult match.”
