I'm very happy with what we have. We hope to provide enough information to everyone who arrives so we can stay on the same page. After Thursday's game, it's very difficult to stay focused. Against Inter it was the same, similar. We have to learn to live with these moments. When we have an important moment of celebration, we need to refocus.
