“We know exactly how we want to play. The mапager explained very well what we have to do and it’s absolutely clear,” he said.
“So we know we have to be very fit beсаuse it’s a very physiсаl way to play.
“We are happy with the result obviously but we know we have to work very hard still to be ready for the start of the season.
“I think we know exactly what we have to do – we have to improve in everything.”
He added: “We have ambition for this season but also, most important, we have to work with humility. I think it’s the most important.
“As I said, it’s just the beginning so we have to improve in everything.”
