"I am not happy if a team has a bad time. I look, I do an evaluation and focus me in my team, likes me the football and all the parties and at all more. I am not happy if to a team do not go out him well the things, the Barcelona or any another", affirmed the míster Italian in the previous press conference to the party against the Villarreal.

On the Real Madrid

With regard to the current situation of the Real Madrid, recognised that the whites have defensive lacks. "It is an appearance that have to improve, in this period of the season there is always something that has to improve, think that have more quality advance and the defensive appearance have to work it together. We did it with more aggressiveness in the party against the Mallorca and is the plan to be followed the next parties".

However, it admitted that David Praises, the signing of the Madrid of the past summer, has helped in this appearance. "The position of the line of the defence positions taking into account the line of pressure of the team. In this Praises is very skillful, but if there is not pressure on the balloon is difficult to have the high line. If there is not pressure have to defend with low block. It would like us have the line in the centre of the field, but no always is possible".

Although it admitted that there are things in which work, ensured that the exert in general of all the footballers has been positive. "The players Are doing it well. I have to be honest, have us focalizado a lot in the defensive appearance because it is the one who more mejoría needed, in the offensive appearance have tried to position to the players with the balloon, but determines a lot by the quality and the creativity that the forwards have and the staff is full of this".

Rotations and calendar

With regard to the rotations that has done, defended the same and indicated that they are necessary so that the players can rest. "It is a subject that have to manage well, give rest to a player, the substitute does it very well and afterwards have to leave in the bench to the player that has done it well. At the end it is always put a team that can win the party taking into account these considerations, this have to do it, the players that have not played have more possibility to play the next party because they are cooler".

Also it complained of the current calendar that has done more difficult can train to the team with greater intensity, reason by which has resorted to that these see videos of his parties. "Train is not possible because they are trainings in which you need intensity, can not do intensity when you play each three days. We do it in video, work in video so that they analyse what have done well and what have to improve. With the videos can do a good work".
