Still feeling bitter from drawing against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, we’re already focused on our game against Young Boys. Obviously I would have liked to have been able to say something else, believe me, but the only way to get over a disappointment is to keep moving forward and in our case our next chance to do so is in a matter of hours. Tomorrow we have a key game for moving towards our objective of progressing in the Champions League.
International football has finished and this week we get back to our day-to-day routine to focus on our next game and train with the team. For me, it is a wonderful routine because I am lucky enough to to be able to dedicate my time to something that I’m so passionate.
We arrive at the final international break of the year after a week filled with many emotions. Unfortunately, they have been contrasting ones. If after Turin we returned home happy and positive, after the Manchester derby we obviously felt the complete opposite.
Back to back 2-1 wins have given us the confidence we need to face up to one of the most difficult weeks of the season. To visit both Juventus and Manchester City in the space of four days is a big challenge.
