"We were on the same page and wanted the same things for the club".

"In relation to the difficulty of the job, every time a club changes in mid-season it is because the situation is not good, that is obvious, unless something unusual happened that we don't know outside", he said.

"If we managed to win a trophy and get top four it would be a successful season".
