“If you really ask me, I prefer to keep on going I think, it’s an advantage to keep on going to the very end and then have the Champions League final after that, and to fight for it constantly and not to have to deal with a situation where you don’t fight, you don’t want to be injured, you don’t want to lose your rhythm, but who do we take out, who should start.
