I believe the team played a good second half against Bologna. We definitely need to believe in ourselves to end the season as best we can. Now we need to look for to win all games the games we have left starting with tomorrow against Genoa.I’m sorry that this thing has been made public. I’m not known as a man who takes his problems to the press and I never have been. If anything I’m known as a man who says things directly and I’ve often been criticized for this. I’ll end by saying that I believe it was right to explain my intentions.”
