"Today was a tough task for us, coming back from global breaks when all the lads have travelled the world, so to come back and put in a performance like that is very pleasing".
"We wanted that, so how could I stand here and say 'oh my God we have to play all these teams.' That's how it is and that's why our owners have brought us all together - to try to do our best and nothing else".
"We are obviously in close contact with him and it improved already - but in this moment I can't say if he will be available for (Tuesday)", he added.
"It's a big relief for us".
"Maybe an injury with Roberto, something in his eye, we don't know in this moment". It's painful, nobody needs that, but he will be fine.
