“He felt very sorry. And after the game he was worried about his ankle ′

′ Guimares’ ankle has a twist, he feels he can continue playing until the end of the first half. He signaled for a change. which, in our view That’s not a good thing ′

′ We will have to scan the ankle to see how heavy Guimares’ condition is and we hope it’s not a long-term injury. But now we don’t know for sure ′

′ Should Guimares be replaced sooner? In hindsight it might have been that way. But he himself wanted to stay on the field. And I tend to compromise the players in this regard. Besides being a concussion to the brain.

The players know how difficult the Premier League is. and they know their bodies better than I do.”

“Guimares probably limped for about five minutes towards the end of the first half. But deciding to make a substitution 30 seconds before the end of the first half is always difficult. And we’d rather wait to do that at halftime to make the right decision ′

“We had a very good first half of the season and We improved a lot from the start of last season. And I think we can still grow ′

′ I’m very satisfied with the dedication of the players. And what they’ve given to the team, myself and this club, so I think we’re in a good position. But our challenges will only get harder.”
