‘We spoke about it before the injuries to Gabriel and Vincent, but it’s so difficult. I don’t know if it will be possible.
‘We are working now for this month but also for the future. Whatever happens, I will work with the players I have. The toughest period to buy players is now because everyone wants to keep the players so it’s not easy.
‘We need Gabriel, we need Sergio, we need both. But now, in this moment, we’ll have maybe two months without Gabriel. Two months is a lot of games, so we just have one.
‘So hopefully we can handle it until the end because, of course, we need the striker’s goals.’
