When asked what pleased him most, the Portuguese said: “Our fans. The way they support us when the team was in trouble. The way they start pushing. Really gratifying. You ask about all the things, that was the one.
“From the game? The organization. I think we kept the whole game form, the right triggers, the right moments to press. Much better in the second half when we recover higher up the field.
“But what made me happy was when we could not kill the game, we had chances to do it and we did not lose our minds. We stayed together and we were compact. We did not allow too many chances for Watford. It was good.
“The balance between these two aspects was good, and ultimately the way we handled the game. Something I did not like: We had to be more clinical, I think we had enough quality and talent players to kill the game. ”
When he was top after three weeks, he urged both the players and fans not to get caught up in their superb start. “It doesn’t matter at all, it doesn’t matter,” he said.
“I invite everyone, not just the players, but our fans not to be aware of it. Do not pay attention to it. Let’s keep working, we still have a long way to go and many aspects to improve. ”
