We will give everything and during the game we will definitely give more than we think. We are on the cusp of achieving something historic.”
And about his opinion about Kamaving, he said: “I think that Kama is fine and that he will train well with us.

He explained his injury against Girona: “My physical condition and my health are very important to me and when I got injured I wanted to do everything in my power to play in those matches.
