"I do not have frustration by the market of signings, am very happy with the incorporations. We wanted a good right side and arrived Semedo. It arrived Paulinho to the average and Dembélé like spare of Neymar. And I am very happy by the return of Deulofeu. Fichar Is easy with clauses, but in Europe there is not. Coutinho? If the market does not allow it, can not .

Can do three things to face up to this money that does not arrive of the world of the football: invest more in the basic football, achieve more income and warn to the institutions, as UEFA and ECA, so that it fulfil the 'Fair Play Financial'. It is necessary to see if this competition that arrives is reasonable or no".
