The situation was not good but come on, the work they did before here, the club, Mauricio, the players, the 14th was just a temporary situation. “I'm happy with the evolution. I knew, I think I knew where I could improve the team. We worked hard, the players are very open to what we are doing. “I couldn't be more pleased but this position can be fake.
