“I watched the game, and Liverpool struggled a lot. In Belgrade, the atmosphere is tough. It’s difficult to play there, like it will be here,” he said. “These are games where you need to concentrate – or you will lose. The most important thing is that we need to be prepared so what happened to Liverpool doesn’t happen to us. It’s a good thing that people still say we can play better. We are still unbeaten and we have not played at our highest level, because we have been with the coach only two or three months now.
“We need to improve a lot. It needs time to understand completely and work on the manager’s football, but we’re doing a great job. Every game and every training session we’ll be better. I don’t know how long it will take to get there. Manchester City with Pep Guardiola struggled in their first season. We’re doing very well because the team has great talent.”
