"In the event that you show up in a semi-last you show up at basically the most elevated level in European football and to play against Real Madrid can't be more enthusiastically.
"They are the most experienced group in this opposition and they will play these games with full certainty and mindfulness.

I trust we can play bold, forceful and escalated football.

"He hasn't prepared with the group yet so I figure Tuesday will be too soon sadly on the grounds that he was so glad to play against his previous partners and he is an essential player for us. He could've helped us a great deal against Brighton and today [against West Ham] with his procedure, ball runs, and spilling."
