Nuno Espirito Santo has said he is upbeat about 2019 ahead of the current Manchester City clash tonight.
“I never did it, thinking how far we can go, or what we can achieve,” Nuno insists. “It doesn’t make sense changing our approach now. It’s day by day. There is no doubt what moves the club. It is the team, so this is what I must be really focused on, not thinking about anything else and not thinking about the future. Knowing that, if we can maintain the same levels of discipline, commitment and focus, 2019 can be good. So let’s go for it.”
Speaking about the Premier League he said, “One of the things you have to realise is that you have to run more,” he explains. “You have to be prepared mentally to know that when you play the best teams in the world, you have to prepare yourselves that you are going to spend less time with the ball. That will require more of you, so preparing for that is basic. After that, compete. Let your character, your routines and your habits control your thoughts. The way you train, you try to play. This is how we think, we are saying that every moment of your training session is going to help you in the competition.”
