How the game finished, everything that happened, the first half, how we plannef to play and how the plan was scattered after just three minutes when we conceded the first goal and I hink everything was amazing . The second half, we planned to make some changes and started to play differently. Always believe and Never give up."

"I want to congratulate my players. They own the football, they delivered a great job. For me they are the real Superheroes now. To get the club to the final of the Champions League, I think is very close to a miracle. No one believed in us from the beginning of the season in our new home. This is a chapter that we are going to close now, until the 1 June final fixture. It can be amazing to close the chapter of playing a final. In case we won it should be an amazing book."
