“We have to improve and that is also a process that continues during the season. But, for next week, it’s about the result as well.

“It was a mixture between experience and youth [today]. Some guys, they need to see today, for the first time, what you can expect.

“You saw the attitude was really great, really the intention to co-operate. They fight and work for each other. That was positive.

“We create also a lot of chances and also conceded some chances. Overall, we have to be satisfied with this performance.”
