On Mikel’s future
“I don’t know what will happen in January. Now, I know for sure I have a squad of players and I am very happy to have these players. Then in January, we’ll see.”
On Kurt Zouma
“Kurt now is working with us. This is the most important thing because before he started to train with us, then they stopped him. Now he’s working with great continuity, he’s playing with the youth team, and this is very important.
“It’s of fundamental importance to find the good form, to go into the idea of our football and then to come back and to have the possibility to play with the first team.
“I’m pleased because I am seeing, day by day, great improvement for Kurt.”
