This is what he had to say.

On injuries

“No change. Ben [Davies] is the only one who hasn’t trained. He still hasn’t trained.

“To be honest, I’ll be surprised if he’s in contention for any of our three remaining fixtures but everyone else has trained this week.”

On his future

“At the start of our conversations it was ‘can you help the football club until the end of the season?’ And then after that, the role is there, to return to what I was doing.

“So as far as I understand at the moment, there’s three more games, and I’m incredibly proud to be in this position, helping this football club. And then after that, my hope is to remain here of course.

“I love this club, I want to help this football club. That was the conversations before, we’ve had no conversations since, because the priority and the aim has been on the games.”

On securing European football

“Of course, since I’ve been here as a player, over the past 10 to 15 years, the chairman has done an incredible job in taking the football club to the next level.

“The fact that we’re sitting here now saying we expect Champions League, that goes to say that the expectations within the club and outside it. Of course when you represent this club you want to be playing in the biggest games.

“Unfortunately this season hasn’t gone as planned at times but I’ve said it all along, we want to focus our attention on winning as many games from now until the end of the season.

“We had a bit of a dent last weekend and we have to bounce back and win this weekend. It’s a big game. We want and expect to be in the Champions League going forward, of course.”
