”I have chosen the best eighteen. It wasn’t just the physical, the technical and the tactical. It was also the mental.
”I have tried to select the best to compete and suffer today, to be closer to getting a victory.
“We have taken a step forward, convincing ourselves, believing a little more in what we are doing. It is an important turning point to continue growing as a team. Let’s see where we get.”
However going by the decision of the new Coach, Chidozie Awaziem, is now ahead Kenneth Omeruo in the pecking order and he’s likely to feature against Real Madrid on Wednesday.
