What is being said?
Assistant manager Nikola Jurcevic: “It will be very difficult but I’m optimistic and I hope it will be a different game in the Olympic Stadium. We must be better. We must win this game in our stadium because we also have big ambitions in Europe.”
Co-chairman David Sullivan: “I was certainly scratching my head to explain why we couldn’t hit our usual high levels of performance, and I am sure Slaven and his coaching staff were too. “We know we have to do better – and we will.”
