Ten unbeaten, 5 clear sheets in a row. You need to have loved tonight?
I loved it tonight and I just like the sound of that. It reveals what we’re doing and the course we’re getting in in the meanwhile. It was a tricky sport tonight. I definitely revered Rennes as an outfit. An excellent crew.
However we did the suitable issues within the sport in each facet. We began nicely, bought our targets and noticed the sport out nicely. That gave us an opportunity to get some minutes within the backend of the sport. I am more than happy. Now we have to maintain getting in the identical vein as we’re going on the minute.
Has Tammy risen to problem of latest faces arriving?
I am very completely satisfied. I’ve had quite a few conversations with him. I’ve relationship with him. Once we introduced in gamers in attacking areas we introduced in gamers who’re versatile of their nature.
We noticed Timo tonight as an example. The standard Tammy can convey to the crew are by no means brief on me. I do know what he can convey when he is at his finest. In his final two video games, at this time and in opposition to Burnley, we noticed him at his finest.
He bought his aim tonight and he deserves it by way of stretching groups, taking them lengthy, setting off our press, leaping in. Not completely satisfied to only soar 5 yards however get the crew up the pitch as the primary man off the ball. These issues are crucial for me. Generally it is in regards to the unseen.
His aim was the fruits of his performances over the previous two matches.
Leipzig stated Timo turned down taking part in for them in quarter-final to arrange for becoming a member of Chelsea. Did that impress you on the time? And is he benefiting from that further time now?
I do not wish to get drawn on that. It was Timo’s choice. I have never broached that one with him personally. However that he might come and practice with us early was a giant bonus for us. That he might come and adapt to life, to the coaching floor, how we practice, make relationships with the gamers.
We’ve not had a pre-season so we have had the advantage of him and Hakim having that interval with us. We’re seeing Timo is match, adapting rapidly to the rigours of the Premier League, working our crew out and the way we wish to play. It was a bonus, definitely a bonus that he might practice.
He is been simple for me to handle. He works nicely. I left him on the pitch at this time as a result of I felt he had the endurance with taking part in 90 minutes. I am very pleased with him.
How did you’re feeling Werner and Abraham linked up? Werner completely different on the left?
The hyperlink up was good. I do know Timo, from the various conversations I’ve had with him, that he’s comfy on the left facet. Within the early phases of the season we had one match out-and-out winger. Christian, Hakim had been out and Callum was getting match match.
Now we have choices however these choices had been tight originally of the season. I do know Timo can do it and he provides the possibility for Tammy or Oli to present their attributes as a central striker. The way in which we wish to play in a 4-3-3 like at this time, you get loads of alternatives as a left-side winger or inside winger to get into the field. It actually fits him. We noticed a great deal of fluidity within the entrance three as a complete at this time.
Is Havertz OK? Have you ever all wanted further testing?
It confirmed up within the UEFA testing on Monday. We retested yesterday once we came upon. Clearly everybody else within the squad is destructive, so that could be a good signal. I’ve spoke to Kai a few occasions since we came upon.
He is at house, he is isolating and he was very disillusioned as a result of he desires to play. He had some minor signs yesterday, his signs have escalated barely at this time however he’s advantageous. I spoke to him two hours earlier than the sport at this time and he is disillusioned to be out.
He is making an attempt to do all the suitable issues. It is simply a kind of issues within the modern-day with the place we’re at. Hopefully he isolates, does the suitable issues and comes again firing.
What is the penalty hierarchy now? Timo No1?
I spoke to Jorginho first as a result of he is been sensible at taking penalties. It is extra lacking a pair just lately that I felt it was time to alter. Jorgi’s reply was as skilled as I might anticipate. He solely desires to attain them however he was advantageous with that.
If Timo takes them in addition to at this time he’ll be completely satisfied. I am completely satisfied he scored. Timo is because it stands now however in fact he must maintain scoring them. At this time he did it very nicely.
Was the second penalty a bit harsh?
We had this earlier within the season within the Premier League and it has been nicely adjusted to indicate what looks like widespread sense by way of the arm transferring in a pure or not pure place. It in all probability goes together with the foundations of the Champions League that the choice will get given at this time. I am unsure they’re the foundations we’re going by within the Premier League.
I am not fully pleased with them and if I used to be the supervisor of Rennes at this time I would not be completely satisfied both. It is one which labored in our favour at this time however I am not mad about that rule. It’s what it’s.
