“At the moment, [there is] no news. At the moment, we cannot update in any way. It’s all so quiet and I think it’s a good thing because we are working so well at the moment.

“No update because I think in the same way when you ask me if players can leave, there is no news about players that can come in.”

“I think it’s good news. We were suffering too many injuries and to recover players from a loan, I think it’s good for us.”
